New features uploaded

As most of you noticed we’ve put new update yesterday. This one is not very feature-rich, but still there’s some improvements:

  • You can now Drag&Drop files in Comapping Desktop attaching them to topic as local attachments.
  • Remember branch state feature added. Look for ‘Remember branch state’ button on ‘Advanced Options’ tab. Clicking on it will freeze the collapse/expand state of branch, i.e. if the branch is collapsed it will be collapsed any time the map is redrawn(the same if the branch is expanded).

And of course there’s numerous bug fixes. Enjoy using new features and don’t forget to give us a feedback

Comapping for Google Apps

We’ve been silent for a while but that was for a reason, and it’s time to open that up. We are ready to announce that Comapping is now available as a Google Apps application – Comapping for Google Apps!

Those of you having a Google Apps account, just click the link and add Comapping to your Google Apps NOW!

If you don’t have a Google Apps account but are an individual Google user, you can still benefit from the new developments – you can now log in using Google account instead of typing login and password – just click Login with your Google Account link on Comapping home page.

And of course the registration has never been easier for the newcomers – just click the link, confirm access at Google, and you’re done!

We do strongly believe here at Comapping that this will make the user experience even smoother – and that’s something the project is devoted to from day one!

New feature: Insert Map from Document

As some of you noticed already, we’ve put a new feature online – Insert Map from Document. Built on top of existing Context Organizer integration, this feature now allows for building your map from external content with just few mouse clicks – just click a button, enter URL or specify the file you want to look at, and you’re done! Try it now and please let us now how this works (note that only English, German, French and Spanish documents work for now)

New features: partial export and Split Topic

A small update just released for our users with two new features:

  • Partial export – allows you to export parts of the map, not the whole map. Very useful for sharing parts of your maps with not-yet-Comapping-enabled world around you.
  • Split Topic – a handly little tool to split a topic by newlines or paragraph breaks into several topics. You asked – we made it!

And of course a lot of bug fixes and enhancements.

Comaping and Context Organizer together

I am writing this blog post to announce that we’re launching a pilot for the new feature – integrated Context Organizer service. This is a great way for you to quickly analyze documents and web links and insert summaries of their content into the map – basically, an automated way to make maps, something you were dreaming about before! Context Organizer slogan is ‘Read less – Learn more’, and now the power of it is available to Comapping users.

Please do not hesitate to try this new feature out and share your feedback! Just to clarify, you don’t need to download and installing anything, just use the Map It! feature now built-in to Comapping!

Cross-topic links live!

We are terribly sorry for being a little bit silent for a while, but this was for a reason. We have just released a brand new feature many of our users asked before: cross-topic links! Yes you can now put links between different topics in your maps and visually connect the related topics from different branches.

Additionally, two new export formats are ready: SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) and (as many people asked) PDF! The last one was asked particularly often and we are sure will be of great value for our users.

There are lots of other improvements you might have noticed already, and a lot of new cool stuff in the works. We hope you would keep enjoying our service in 2010 and onwards.

Global Search, Recent Maps and more

I am pleased to announce that we’ve put the new version online last week. New feature include:

  • Global Search to allow you to search your maps for content
  • Recent Maps to let you quickly open your favourite documents
  • New icons added

Additionally, printing has been improved, a lot of bugs fixed, and performance is gonna be better now. Looking forward for your feedback!
