We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of a new version of NovaMind for Windows 8. The new version adds file compatibility with NovaMind 5 (for the Windows desktop and Mac platforms), so you can import and export those files without losing attributes which are not in the Windows 8 version of NovaMind. It also improves keyboard based editing and navigation with new shortcut keys.
The Windows 8 version of NovaMind required us to use different technologies than those found on both NovaMind 5 for Windows and NovaMind 5 for Mac, but many of our users need to go back and forth between NovaMind 5 and NovaMind for Windows 8. We therefore included both import and export options for NovaMind 5 files which leave the attributes of the NovaMind 5 files unchanged for items that have not been edited in NovaMind for Windows 8, whether those attributes are available in NovaMind for Windows 8 or not.
The result of this is easy migration of files to and from between NovaMind for Windows 8 and NovaMind5.
In addition, the new release has improved Mind Map navigation and editing with new hotkeys, and an updated tutorial which explains the new hotkeys.
The update is now available through the Windows Store either as a free application, where you can purchase selected extensions, or as a paid application, which includes all the functionality available. NovaMind for Windows 8 requires Windows 8 to run.
