OPML Import from Concept Draw

I’m trying to import a mind map from ConceptDraw into Scrivener using OPML.

The notes attached to the mind map node aren’t coming across although they appear when I open the mind map in iThoughts.

I’ve tried all options on the import panel for bringing in the notes but they never appear. The OPML snippet is enclosed.

		<outline id="142" text="Other">
			<outline id="146" text="voice control"></outline>

			<outline id="150" note="These are text notes that apply to the iterations and stabilization" text="Plan for 8-12 iterations before fully stabilizing"></outline>

I’m using ConceptDraw Mind Map version and Scrivener 1.7.2 on Windows 7 Professional with Service Pack 1 on a Dell Vostro with 8GB of RAM.

Any ideas?


Try doing a search and replace for note=" to _note=" in something like Notepad, as it looks like they are using a different method for storing notes. There is no standard way of doing this, so support for note transfer is always dependent upon the two applications involved.

Replacing with _note worked a treat.

Thanks for the suggestion.
