How To: Linking MindManager topics to OneNote paragraphs

I’ve had a few questions on how to link MindManager topics to OneNote existing OneNote paragraphs.

This is taken from a post I made on my old blog and included it here for archival purposes.


I have verified that these steps still work.OneNote 2007 is required. If you have any problems with these steps, please post  back.

1. Within OneNote 2007, find the page or paragraph that you would like to link to. If it is a paragraph, then right click the paragraph handle and choose Copy Hyperlink. If it is a page, just right click the page and choose Copy Hyperlink.

2. Go to MindManager and click on the topic you wish to create the hyperlink for. Then click the hyperlink button.


3. In the Hyperlink screen, navigate to the OneNote 2007 section that contains the page or paragraph you want to link to. Do not paste the hyperlink that was copied in OneNote in to this field. MindManager won’t accept it.


4. Then click on Options and go to the Arguments field. Paste the hyperlink that was created in that field. Then go to the beginning of the field (ctl home) and remove everything up until the # after the section name. For example, my hyperlink looks like: (the bold part contains the text that you will remove, the italicized part contains the part you will keep.


The part you keep serves as the command line arguments that get passed in to the section that you linked to step 3.

If you are only hyperlinking to a section, you don’t need to mess with the argument stuff.
