add "recent used" types to context menu - improve usability
Without "usability" features (to quickly do things) features become too time consuming to use. Types and Tags are useful but take too much time use use effectively. The new submenu structure for Types is frustrating because it creates new need to navigate an extra submenu. Submenu frustration is a well known major design flaw in Windows (how many times have you tried to "hit" a submenu only to have to start all over again). The Context menu should include a list of recently used types (and tags) to greatly improve use of those features (other suggestions have focused on the problem but have different ways to solve (e.g., a type "paintbrush", a user defined default type, etc))). But the problem is there. If you spend most of your time "categorizing" (very time intensive work) you can't get things done and even worse the system you set up can fail under its own weight because if cannot be maintained! This re.sult is that many users simply foregoing valuable functionality because of the time consuming frustration of using those features.
In line with this suggestion, when you click on "Types" in the context menu for a thought you should see a combo box with "as you type" selecting, not a frustrating, error-prone, hard to use submenu
