An XMP file is a markers package used by XMind, a mind mapping and brainstorming application. It contains one or more markers, which are icons used to denote special meaning such as the urgency of a task or what people are involved. Some of the marker categories include faces, task progress, task priority, arrows, symbols, and month.
XMind -- a powerful, Java-based mind mapping and charting application -- has been open-sourced (it's free!) with version 3.0. While it's not my absolute top pick for mind mapping, it ranks up there. I did have a license for the paid version, and I can tell you that it packs plenty of punch. It has all of the extra features I like: boundaries, relationships, summaries, notes, floating topics and more, as well as intuitive keyboard navigation for rapid-fire brainstorming.
Paste in your definitions. For the first map, I placed the definitions in the folder, not in the state file itself. The second map, I defined based on the first. Type the tag and replace it with the full path for the name of the state file.
The rest of the files were copied into the initial map's state, unless noted otherwise. In this case, I had a state file for one level up from the map being created, another for the state file itself and a third for another map. As I will be adding oceans to the initial map, these are also located in the same state folder. Click OK.
I chose to use a Folder setting as the location for my new state files (versus choosing the first state file for the first map, or the state folder for the second map). Note: For the tag, just fill in the information as needed. d2c66b5586
