  1. it's awesome to have plex hyperlinks!

    http://thebrain.uservoice.com/forums/4597-thebrain-feature-suggestions/suggestions/232421-allow-hyperlink-in-notes-to-link-to-thought-in-ple

    please make it work like web URLs - highlight text and choose a thought (you could bring up the search box)

    there are times when the text does not match the target thought link or sometimes I'm phrasing it in a way that does not match the thought text.

    it would also save time if you don't remember exact spelling of a thought in your brain (which is required) because most of the time whatever you type is still a valid jump even if it's not character for character. otherwise, it can be…

  2. the longer I use "the brain" the more I am enthused.

    there is only one little thing I miss... is it possible to open a specific thougth at an assigned time set within the calender ???

    this would be important to me, as I have to update some lists at specific days and hours...

  3. Allow If This Then That (IFTTT) to have rules that are able to:
    The ability to create a thought
    The ability to add a file to a pre-definied thought.
    The ability to add a file to a new thought.
    The ability to create a new thought with a hyperlink.
    The ability to add a hyperlink to a pre-defined thought.

  4. essentially a saved, predetermined "wander." Maybe this could be done with a different type of pin? Either numerical, or possibly even with timing?

  5. (or as many as fit on the screen)

    I have a lot of white space but I can only see a max of two grandchildren of any idea. I'd love to be able to see more of the things directly connected to my ideas.

    Thank you!

  6. It is currently cumbersome to link or drag email from outlook to Brain. Would it be possible to enable emails to be received directly into the Brain.

    Effectively, an email client or option to sync with outlook inbox automatically (activesynch?)

    Would make the system a much more comprehensive knowledge management tool.

  7. When right clicking a thought, on the menu that appears, please move/rearrange the neighbouring commands of "Rename" command to avoid accidental "Forget" and "Create pin" actions. I frequently hit the wrong command and end up having to unforget thoughts that I have accidentally forgotten and deleting pins of thoughts that I accedentally created.

  8. It would be helpful if there was a library of shapes (Rectangle, oval, cloud for Thoughts for example), symbols (arrows, flags, etc.) and images. Thus, the thoughts would be better and faster individually.

  9. Especially if one uses the program for professional business presentations, it would be very nice if you could have multiple thumbnails for each Thought. In presentation modus, you can click through the images (step by step)
    One image is the "default-Thought-image", the others are interesting for the presentation- mode. With more pictures for one Thought, you can visual and step by step build logical structures, and arguments while presentation. This is like a fade - in - Animation of elements.

  10. It would be nice if you could put directly on the Wallpaper text boxes, images, and links. (Interesting in presentatione mode). whatever thoughts you click, direct access remains

  11. People always learn in visual context. I would therefore allow multiple wallpapers in a Brain (in-the-deep-Wallpapers). For each Generation of thoughts, specific thematical Area or specific activated Thought one specific Wallpaper for example. memory Trainers use this for rapid learning (see also in google "loci-technique")

  12. From a browser, if you like a page URL you can send it to your PB active thought or to a specified thought (same functionality you have for the Win Explorer right click "send to".
    This idea is also similar or set/subset of " Have an 'inject' into brain capabilty" and "Email or text a Thought or Note into my Brain"

  14. Currently, when you change tags on thoughts on one machine, those sync to the cloud and propagate to other machines, of course. However, when I go to my other machine and sync, the old tags on that machine are merged with the tags on the cloud. I end up with double tags in some instances.

    I use The Brain for tagging tasks for a GTD workflow, and end up with a complete mess as items change over time. It is impossible to use tags to control GTD "elevations" (0k tag, 10k tag, and so on). Tags should not be merged,…

  15. The startup window should be improved as follows:

    • display only if there is no default brain (in v 7.0.4.5 it is displayed regardless)

    • if displayed, use all space for brain shortcuts (like e.g. Firefox or Opera) - currently right half of window contains redundant/useless information and forces you to scroll brain list

  17. I am a medical doctor using personal brain in my daily work as my knowledgebase. A feature that i miss direly is the possibility to search thoughts connected to a given set of thoughts.

    For instance i would like to find all the thought (diseases) that are connected to all (and not just any) of the following thoughts (symptoms):
    -chest pain
    -shortness of breath
    -Pain associated with breathing

    Where the brain would return/show:
    -Myocardial infarction
    -Pulmonary embolism
    -Pleuritis
    -Aortic dissection

    This would greatly increase the associative power of the personal brain when the screen is not cluttered with all the…

  18. I want to request the New Window feature, akin to the same feature in MS Office products. I've searched around for a little while for similar suggestions, and found one that is too expansive compared to what I'm requesting (http://thebrain.uservoice.com/forums/4597-thebrain-feature-suggestions/suggestions/96843-open-thoughts-in-separate-windows-save-windows-as). What I'm suggesting might be covered through some alternative feature, but to be sure I wanted to describe it separately.

    Currently most users have no need of such a feature, because they're using multiple Brains and are opening multiple instances of TB. But that doesn't take into account single central Brains.

    At a first glance it feels like this feature…

  19. I'm current drawing a dependency graph on my todos, where thought A is a child of thought B if A needs to be done before B. I want to filter out childless thoughts so I can get a set of todos I need to do before I can do others.

  20. I corporate environments there are many other calendar server systems we are forced to use, and CalDav is well supported standard for talking between clients and servers. Being able to use TheBrain calendar as the interface for managing those calendars would be a big plus.
