  2. Maybe there is a way of doing this already
    (please advise if true, & I will delete this etc)

    I would like the option of importing an entire section of my PC folder structure into PB
    -then reorganising the enitire structure from within PB
    -then selecting a yes button
    - then seeing the changes effected in my windows explorer / folder strucure

    An example of how I would most like to use this function would be to reorganise the contents of my digital photo library
    This would include the ability to create new folders and copy paste files between folders…

  3. Help / About Personal Brain

    It would be interesting to have a live summary somewhere in the Help menu, revealing the number of PB users per Country (but listed in relative order of number per Country-Population)

  4. The Instant Search only helps you quickly find the any thoughts with keywords in the searchbox. How much would be a overhead of also including the names of the files stored as attachment to build the search index. This way you can to a an instant search on any attachments with a specific file names too.

  5. Currently the number of attachments per thought is very small and barely visible against the background. Could you change at least the background to a better colour such as red?
    This would greatly improve readability.

  6. Have text/notes 'exported' optionally with a simple marker of some sort so that when 'copy as outline with notes' pasting into a document it is possible to distinguish between thoughts (level x) and notes associated with thoughts at level x-1. As some other have suggested use of templates for notes then I guess this (and more) could be achieved that way.
    Also apply to link notes in V7

  7. It will be good to have a feature that allows one to have different colours for branches automatically rather than doing it manually. This will help increase efficiency and speed as well as emphasise important points

  10. The special characters tab is not present within your application for
    Mac OS. This special characters which is present in the edit tab should be available and is available in all Mac OS designed applications since the tab is not an optional feature for all Mac OSX whether from Apple or private retailers. This special character tab allows me to increase speed in note-taking whether during lectures or
    studying/revising as well as many other things.

  11. The tool bar is not customisable. I would love to be able to have some
    buttons from the tabs in my tool bar than the pre-defined ones for
    increased speed.

  12. It would be perfect, it we could add additional thought shapes than the current squared default shape. So It will help thought stand out better. such as oval, rounded, cloud-shape or no shape at all

  13. When a user adds Brain Buttons to the toolbar, they are fixed in the order that they were added to the toolbar.

    It would be nice if the User could drag and drop the Brain Buttons on the toolbar so as to allow the User to re-arrange the order of the Brain Buttons.

    This would be similar to the way a User can re-order Pins.

  14. Sometimes relationships between thoughts can be complex (like the transformation of DNA into chromosomes). Since a lot of useful data can now be stored in a link, I would like for such links to show up in my searches.

    Also, I see there is a timeline idea. Perhaps enabling thought links to become timelines associating a chain of events between two thoughts would be a good idea, too.

  15. 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

  16. I have many node types and it is a pain to search for each node type view scrollbar. Could you implement an expand and collapse feature to reduce manual type-node search times.

  17. There are a ton of new features the app could use, but I would love to simply see it updated to fit the new screen resolutions, even if there are no new features. This is one of the few apps that could really benefit from the bigger screens.

    It's been since May 2014 that the app was was updated. It's disheartening to see it languishing on version 1.

  18. Creating a thought out of a web link should be a lot easier and more intuitive. My suggestion: right from the + menu, without having to type the thought name first.
