    This is a feature that really limits the flexibility of the progam. Surely, whenever we have lists of things, the user will sometimes want to sort them in a logical order - which may not be alphabetical.

    I know it can be done with types, but it is a limiting workaround. Even if there was some sort of separate set of tags to enable sorting would be more useful.

    The closest thing available to this right now is to add the contents of the report to the selection via the Edit menu. Next, select Edit > Copy as Text Outline with Notes. You can now paste into Word, etc for formatting and printing.

    I love this program but the ability to print reports from it is the one big weakness for me. I understand the difficulty in structuring a printout from a brain with so many different links, but I need to produce reports from my thoughts.

    Currently, if I want to do a written report, I have gone back to using a hierarchical mind map that I can juggle my thoughts in and then export in a great looking format I can provide to others. But I would love to be able to do this in my PB. It is much better at collecting thoughts and making the links. From there I would like to drag thoughts to sort into something I can export to Word in some sort of report format.

    I saw the idea of an autobiographical brain and started one. But then I thought "what if I ever want to publish this?" It would be so time consuming to extract the data from PB.
