For a presentation it would be nice to have the possibility to integrate a powerpoint-viewer into a branch. If the task is reached the PP starts smooth.At the end of the PP the normal mindmap-presentation still in process.

I find the build in presentation mode great. Is it that hard ti export it to a poweroint format once done?

I would love that kind of integration. It really bugs me, that I have to push the resume button after returning from a Powerpoint-Link. If only the resume button vanished after clicking the "next" button on your presenter. :-|
@Chris - again: I think of a real partnership of iStockphoto and ThinkBuzan - and i know that there are real great benefits on both sites - and if you offer a solution where every 3rd or 2nd iMindMap User will become a iStockPhoto-User or get their credits cheaper if they login with a ThinkBuzan Code it is so great and the normal ppt-export mode will be a AAA+ Class solution for every presenter who still uses PPT.
One idea - a perfect solution would be:
For each branch a new Slide and a link inside this slide to www.istockphoto.com or any other photodatabase - which shows directly the perfect picture for the Branch-Title - instead of .i.e.
and further you have one Slide for Business - wich shows this Title and inside it a picture with the keyword Business is shown:
or the summary section is shown:
Then for every further keyword you find the other ones like
http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-photo-6413485-excited-shopping-woman.php?st=2b07117 for Consumer
With this togehter combined with a afilliate partnership with istockphoto you push iMindMap to a tool that offers a perfect solution for business customers who need to present not only with the presenting mode AND it has a lot of income for ThinkBuzan that is one thing i am totally shure of.
the PPT integration is more than a poor, poor joke.
Thinkbuzan has a philosophy to go for both parts of the brain - to make their product "mind-friendly" but if you look at an exportet ppt file a boring, left-brain-side-targeting presentation comes out -
And this much to close on the left-margin-side of the PPT file
What has this todo with presentations - that is so far from a presentation just like linear-thinking and
has to do with MindMapping - A presentation of today is not a bulletpoint event anymore like it was 2000 - it should be an optical eye-present and even adresses the right side of the brain.
ThinkBuzan could go for it and show by make those bullet-point-shootings much more a reflection of their philosophy and go for well designed and right-side targeted presentation output...
This is a wish of mine as someone who teaches daily how to make better presentations and always tell the people to go for the right side of a brain in presentations just like Tony Buzan who always telling why a branch should not be a straight line and boring colourless.
