Post Anyone willing to give a tutorial on the basics?
on: February 6, 2016, 16:09

Middle aged, returning to get my masters in education, invested a ton of time on Docear because I love the concept--its the way I think. I'm just stuck, I've created a mm for each of my courses and I've screwed something up from the get-go. It takes forever to shut down, I've gummed up my monitoring folder somehow, and I've gotten so frustrated that the slope of my learning curve is negative. I can't find just a basic, step-by-step demo of how to create multiple mm for various purposes, create and utilize monitoring folders, and manage all the files. I'd be willing to compensate for your time.
Thanks

Also a newbie to Docear although not to mind mapping as a stand alone.

Would it be perhaps better to create a project for each of your courses rather than a single mind map? You will then get the default project structure for each course. If your course notes are available as PDFs then you can import them into the literature and annotations mind map and then add any additional research materials.

When you change courses just save and close the maps associated with the course (an autosave would be a nice feature) you have been working on select the project for the new course and open the Literature and Annnotations map for that project ( in the Library folder) and any other maps. You can then add maps for assignments etc in the library folder for each course-project. If only the maps you are working on are open then Docear should start and finish quite quickly.

As far as I have been able to ascertain the project information is automatically saved to the project database file as you alter it but I too am still learning.

If you did want to have your whole masters as a single project and have your literature and notes available across all subjects you could have the subjects as first level nodes under the literature and annotations but this means the maps will become quite large. It should be possible to link separate maps for each subject to these nodes and open and close them as you need them but I have not yet experimented with transferring annotations to separate linked maps. I suspect your problem may be having all the mindmaps for your courses open at once as they should not really consume any resources if they are not open.

Not sure about problems with the files and monitoring but if it is a problem you can remove the monitoring folder as it appears to be monitoring a folder so that if new PDFs are placed in it information is automatically added to the bibliography. Not sure about that though as I haven\'t yet explored that fully. The section \"Create your own monitoring nodes and mind maps\" in the User Manual seems to deal with this.

Hope this helps and I am not teaching you to suck eggs.

Thanks for the reply Dave,

Would it be perhaps better to create a project for each of your courses rather than a single mind map? You will then get the default project structure for each course.

Almost all of my literature comes in the form of a PDF, some of them relate to more than one course in the semester so it would be a little easier if they were all under one project. Also, it seemed like the documentation for Docear was suggesting that projects were for significantly different endeavors. But, point taken, your suggestion would certainly work. I have screwed around with a new project and it closes without a problem.


As far as I have been able to ascertain the project information is automatically saved to the project database file as you alter it but I too am still learning.

This is where I'm having the most difficult time. I have spent hours trying to track down and comprehend where the literature repository is/should be. I want to be able to grab a pdf off of the internet and dump it into my monitoring folder, a la mendeley, and then go into Docear and file them. I can get them into a monitoring folder but don't know whether to use the pre-existing literature repository that Docear created for the project, or assign them to discrete mms. I have tried many different techniques and, while I can see them in a particular mm, I can't find out where the files actually exist. I am talking about a lot of files and I would like to understand their organization. Docear appears to create folders (such as queu) that do not show up in the left panel of the program.


I suspect your problem may be having all the mindmaps for your courses open at once as they should not really consume any resources if they are not open.

I think you are correct, although it is a possibility that I have screwed up the file management and my files are strewn across the universe--making it quite difficult to close them all.

Not sure about problems with the files and monitoring but if it is a problem you can remove the monitoring folder as it appears to be monitoring a folder so that if new PDFs are placed in it information is automatically added to the bibliography.

I just need an efficient way to get a lot of pdfs to particular mms, the bibliography is still beyond my reach.

This program is so tantalizing, it seems exactly what I want, I don't want to bail on it.
