Tags / Smart Thought enhancement
I realize there are several items listed here but this is kind of an all or nothing request.
- Smart Thoughts should be able to have parent and jump thoughts as a part of the normal brain structure.
- Normal thoughts should be able to be converted into Smart Thoughts by selecting which tag(s) the Smart Thought applies to in the Thought Properties dialog.
- Clicking on a tag in the Tags tab should NOT automatically open that tag's Smart Thought (maybe double click instead?). Having the Smart Thought automatically open adds needless extra navigation editing the tag properties.
And without having my Library always available within the plex, there is no way to navigate to those items in the plex through the normal connections. I am forced to click on the tag. As I also mentioned. The Wander feature will never be able to get to those islands, because the ST isn't available in the plex as a choice to wander to.
JJS, by not having the Smart Though (ST) visible in the plex at all times, PB is not displaying the full connectedness of the brain. For example, I have a ST called "Library", any time I create a thought of type "Book", I also tag it with Library. I don't always have another connection from that book/author/subject to other thoughts, but it it connected to my Library.
Twospoons, try Pinning the Smart Thought. I use a tag called "Pin Tag" as a secondary Pin area. Don't really see why thoughts should ever be unnavigable, but where frequently-needed thoughts are deeply nested, I can reach them on two clicks by tagging them "Pin Tag."
Just wanted to post an update to this request... Without having smart thoughts persisted in the plex (#1 in list), it is beginning to severely limit the number of paths that I am able to navigate to certain thoughts. There are parts of my brain that are now islands because I can't link to the smart thought itself (can only be opened throught the tags tab). This also limits the Wander feature.
At least for 1. you would have my vote - if I had one left ;-)
