Default mindreader configuration file
MindReader Configuration File Information
The sections below list the main branches of the default MindReader.mmap configuration file. In order to customize MindReader to your language and perferences, you can change the keywords (subtopics of the maintopics) and the notes associated with them. Some of the notes (e.g. for dates, icons) should be left as is as they are used to communicate into the macro.
Defaultmap should be left as the 1st entry and associated with you the map you want as your default destination(e.g. daily capture map). Mapmap points to the mindreader.mmap file to enable easier opening for editing (e.g. "o mapmap"). You can add additional subtopic with other keywords and map hyperlinks to set destination maps. The sample map is included to facilitate demonstration scripts and examples. Choose a somewhat unique keyword that you associate mentally with the project to avoid false matches. Beware that it will match a substring of a larger word (e.g. fund would match refund).
Context only matches the 1st word or string in your task to avoid mismatches. You can change the "Action Verb" or the associated context in the note.
- pick up
- drop off
Additional branches can be added (e.g. "Waiting for Nick" and associated with specific resource names)
- Waiting for
The date keywords can be customized to your language but the notes associated with these entries should not be changed. You can add additional scenarios if you can figure out the right equation to capture it (please share with the group).
- end of week
- this week
- end of month
- this month
- this year
- end of year
- next week
- next month
- next year
Additional icons can be added by looking up their code in the object model reference page at the link above.
The default keywords are actually bad choices (project matches subproject as well) but I haven't thought up new ones yet.
Additional priorities can be added here if needed.
I use these to assess the time required for a task given that MindManager only measures time in 1 hour increments. Other category uses could be added here.
These keywords tell MindReader to include the clipboard contents as a note or hyperlink. The notes associated with this branch should not be changed as they are used to communicate into the macros.
These keywords are used to set a future starting date relative to a due date. The notes associated with this branch should not be changed
