We've recieved a lot of possitive feedback from those of you that have downloaded our BrainZips.  As well as questions on how to create them.  BrainZips are quite easy to create.  

BrainZips allow you to Zip up your PersonalBrain file for sharing, transporting or for creating back-ups.  Note that externally linked files will not be included in the zip file.
To create a BrainZip:
  1. Open the PersonalBrain you would like to zip
  2. Click on FILE and select CREATE BRAINZIP
    • If you do not see an option for Create BrainZip, you may need to upgrade to the latest release of 4.0
  3. Follow the instructions in the pop up window and note where the BrainZip will be saved (Output folder).
  4. Your BrainZip is ready to go!
