Mindjet 11 and Office 2013

Yesterday I updated Microsoft Office 2010 32 bit to Office 2013 on my Windows 8 64 bit Tablet PC. I used the Office 2013 32-64 bit installation DVD. It automatically selected the 32 bit version for the upgrade. Which is good because Mindjet’s Office Add Ins don’t work with 64 bit.

After installation the Excel and Outlook Mindjet Add Ins (Send range, Send item or folder to Mindjet map) was there on the Home ribbon as before. I quickly added it to the Quick Access bar as well (right click the Add In icon).

Office 2013 Mouse Touch OptimiserIn Word I had to go to to File – Options – Add Ins and enable the Mindjet Add In. (It may have been disabled in Word 2010 due to issues).

Now I have to get used to the new look of Office 2013. Worth noting there is a new icon on the Quick Access Toolbar for optimising the ribbons and menus for mouse and touch. A feature I expect to see in Mindjet 11 soon!
