How can I open new MindNode files in older MindNode versions?

January 21, 2021

If you are using two different versions of MindNode please note that MindNode 7 introduced a new file format. This file format is unfortunately not supported by legacy versions like MindNode 2 for Mac and MindNode 4 for iOS.

In order to revert back to a file format compatible with the legacy versions follow these steps:

  1. Please open the document in MindNode
  2. Export it as a MindNode document and enable legacy version support in the export window.

    In MindNode for iOS, it is also possible to set the legacy file format as a default. For enabling that please open the MindNode settings, shake your device, select “Show Settings” in the dialogue that appears, and then enable the option “Create new documents in legacy format”.
