    I've used the EverNote clipper, and think that a similar tool for PB would be very useful and timesaving. The Notes tab also needs to be fixed so that it properly displays the clipped page. Have a look at how Firefox pages look like in OneNote or EverNote after they are pasted in, and then have a look at how web pages look like after pasting into the Note tab of PB.

    Excellent suggestion! I always have 2 brains open, and it is tedious having to open the second brain up by running the PersonalBrain again from the Windows menu or desktop, and then selecting the second brain from the 'Welcome to Personal Brain' screen.

    The difference between my suggestion and using existing selection box functionality is primarily part (c) of my original suggestion. Currently, you would need to manually set each link type once you have added the children of parent X to be the children of parent Y. You cannot say "set the link type for each of the added children to be the same as the link type between the child and parent X'.

    One way of implementing this feature request would be to provide a 'link to children of' function. When such a function is used, you select which thought you want to link to the children of, and then links to the children of the selected thought get added to the active thought. The links added should have the same link types that exist between the selected thought and each of its children.

    Hopefully a future release will have this feature implemented, since in http://websitetoolbox.com/tool/post/thebrain/vpost?id=1978480&highlight=notes+links , Harlan had said "Adding full notes and attachments to links is something that we have planned for and laid the foundation for"

    There is nothing new under the sun...
    In 2008, bookeater had previously suggested that links should be able to have attributes: http://websitetoolbox.com/tool/post/thebrain/vpost?id=2894657
    In 2007, there was also a discussion about the same suggestion: http://websitetoolbox.com/tool/post/thebrain/vpost?id=1978480&highlight=notes+links

    I think I have worked out a neat way to implement this feature request. Have a look at my suggestion http://thebrain.uservoice.com/pages/general/suggestions/107028-thought-groups

    If we had such a feature, then we could do things like present a list of 'bug' thoughts (referring to the previous example) in various colours, such as red for critical bugs, amber for serious, etc.

    When looking at a list of bugs, it is far better to present the list in order of priority rather than title of bug etc. In this case, we could assign a 'priority' attribute to the bugs, and then specify that we want the bug thoughts sorted by this attribute. Come to think of it, wouldn't it be cool to specify that thoughts with a particular attribute value have a certain colour.

    I'll give another example of how sorting by an attribute (rather than by name, last active date etc.) could be very useful. Say we had a thought that had as children a whole bunch of bug reports (e.g. hyperlinks to Mantis items, GNATS items etc.).

    Absolutely in support of node types with structured meta data ! I would also like to remind everyone of the related good suggestion made by LukeP, about permitting control over the sort order of thoughts. In 70157-please-bring-back-user-defined-sort-order-in-plex, LukeP suggests that it would be nice to have the option of nominating a particular attribute to sort by.

    I need tags in either SiteBrain or Simple HTML. I say "either" because currently SiteBrain is not useable for my purposes because it is way too slow once a non trivial number of child thoughts appear in the plex. So unless the speed problems of SiteBrain are fixed, I need tags to be visible in the Simple HTML site.
