Re BRAIN 9
What happened to the ALWAYS LINK TO EXISTING THOUGHT function, which was in previous brains.

When copying and pasting many thoughts, or importing e.g, a text file,  I need to always link to existing thought of the exact same name. I never want duplicate thoughts, i.e  two or more thoughts to have the same name.

Also, can this feature me made the default option.
This feature is very, very important.

thanks, and blessings.

Thanks for posting. This feature still exists in version 9.  However, TheBrain isn't looking at Thought Names, it's looking at Thought GUIDs.  This was true in previous versions as well. To test this, try pasting in the same content - twice!  An "Existing Objects Detected" message should appear.  This feature has actually been greatly enhanced in v9, giving you more options for what gets copied, skipped or replaced.

Thank you,
Matt

Thanks for your response, but it does not work.
Tried it many times. I have been copying and pasting multiple 'thoughts' structured texts in previous versions, (for years) and duplicates are recognized in previous versions, but no such recognition in Brain 9, when I do exactly the same thing.
Without this function/capability Brain9 is no use to me.
Hope you can advise me further.
thanks.

BibleMinister,

I've had an "aha moment" with this issue.  Our engineers pointed out that you may be pasting in a text list/outline and I've replicated the issue.  Thank you for bringing this to our attention and I'll document this for further review.

Yes, it is the pasting of lists or text outline in hierarchical format.
This feature has been consistently in the earlier versions of theBrain.
Does your response confirm that this feature has been left out of Brain9, and if so, will it be restored?

bibleminister,

I believe what Matt meant to say is that it's been reported as a bug and is being looked into by our engineers for a fix so this feature will return. Thanks.

Christian,

Thanks for checking up on this issue, and sorry it has not yet been fixed. Unfortunately we still do not have an ETA for this fix, but I went ahead and updated the ticket to reflect that our users are still running into this issue.

Cheers, Sean
