This post is to pass on a solution to a problem I hit.Yesterday I was working on a large mind map that I've been building up for a few weeks. Suddenly I reached the point where I could add no more to the map. Or rather, I could add more, but then I could not save the map. It crashed with a message "Java was started but returned exit code=-805306369".I got in touch with Stephen Zhu at Xmind, and he quickly gave me two useful tips.1) You can add a line at the end of the Xmind.ini file to allocate…See More

Hi Roy

Talk about timely response! I didn't see your request, and hadn't been back on here in a long time. Obviously.

Frank
