    This is a common issue I have: tables that I would like to copy paste in TB and thoughts/parents/children that I would need to paste in a table.

    TB6 has made some progress by allowing to allocate a type/tag when creating a child. However, the allocation is still slow since users have to use the mouse instead of being able to use the keyboard.
    Optimally, while creating a thought you should be able to:
    - Use ctrl+T or shft+ctrl+T to unfold the drop box for tags or types
    - Once unfolded, type a letter to jump to the first tag with this letter, as explained in my first post.

    It seems you are more looking for a filtering and display capability?
    A layer capability is closer to what is found at:
    http://thebrain.uservoice.com/forums/4597-thebrain-feature-suggestions/suggestions/1095529-layer
    In this case, the layer functions like a Photoshop layer, that is a stratum of information that overlays a background of information. The layer can be displayed, hidden, exported, deleted independently from the background.

    For those interested, I use accelerators for this:
    Alt+Ctrl+v cuts all the selected thoughts
    Alt+Ctrl+c paste them as child of the current thought
    Works well

    Yes. It is so complicated to ctrl-click, right-click to unlink in the selection window, go to the other thought, return to the selection window to right-click again and finally make the link... A very very long path to do a simple copy-paste...

    TB faces difficulties when organizing different levels of information: For example, I use different brains, which I find cumbersome when dealing with the part that is common to several of them. In an example with 3 brains, I have (1) my encyclopedic brain, where I have more than 20,000 thoughts and that will grow endlessly; (2) My professional brain where there is all the specifics for my current job; (3) An administrative brain where I put all the banking, shopping, health, etc issues and information.

    The problem is that these 3 brains should be connected in a tight manner while remaining 3 separate layers of information. For example, 
    specific information about my interlocutors in my professional brain should be linked to the sector in my encyclopedic brain (because there the sector will be connected to the broader context). 
    My investments in my Admin brain should be linked to the economic sectors in the encyclopedic brain, where I monitor the economic situation. 
    The latest version of PB allows thought URLs which makes possible links between different brains, but I don't find it convenient enough for the systematic linking of thoughts between different level of information.

    One suggestion would be to use layers, just like an imaging software like Photoshop uses layers. The encyclopedic brain would be the background brain, and the two other brains would be layers rather than separate brains. Just like Photoshop layers, you could have layers displayed or not over the background. 
    You could work on a specific layer, adding and deleting thoughts without affecting the other layers. 
    You could delete and/or export a layer out of the brain. Think for example when you are changing job, you remove the layer from the previous job and create a new layer for the new job. 
    You could share your brain but exclude one layer, for example your Admin layer with personal information. This latter possibility is much more efficient than identifying individual thoughts as private one by one.
    You could have layers to monitor events or information for a period of time, events that you may not want to include right away in your encyclopedic background since you are not yet sure of their significance. For example, adding a 2012 layer for adding anything that attract your attention during the year, but that you might want to review at the end of the year and clean up. 
    You could have one layer that you share with colleagues, while keeping the background private
    etc.

    How I see that is that:
    - the Notes field would be made flexible. It would be a Notes by default, but users would have the ability to add fields just like in a standard database.
    One would be able to add date, number, text, calculated fields.
    At the same time, this would be part of the solution for those who wish time-line functionalities added to PB. A date field would be added to the events that needs to be tracked chronologically.
    - Though types would be associated to a certain number of fields. When the thought type is selected, the correspondent fields would appear in the Notes section.
    - This database functionalities would definitely make the program more complex, so it would go in the Pro version. So that the the extraordinary specificity and simplicity of PB does is not obstructed by more complex functions.
