Sorry if this has been brought-up before. 

In expanded view, sometimes in selecting the (-) of a distant thought cuts the thought leaving a section floating nearby.  The intention with the (-) is to hide the child thoughts underneath the thought that has been selected with the (-).  How can I avoid this happening?

Yup, I too have asked this sort of question, and I'm interested in any feed back.

The collapse button (-) hides the connected satellite thoughts (thoughts that aren't connected to anything else). If there are no satellite thoughts, then the thought itself is hidden. There is a thorough explanation of expanded view controls in the new guide for PB4... http://www.thebrain.com/manual

Occassionally, it will arise that clicking the (-) will cause it's thought to expand all connected thoughts, then that thought's (-) will disappear (no longer be available) even though you might be trying to hide it. This might happen once in 20 times. I've been trying to reproduce the circumstances when it happens, but it has seemed pretty random so far.

Sounds like the click on the (-) is being treated as a click on (+) instead?

Yes, that certainly seems the effect. The notable thing to me though, is that the (-) disappears (only for the particular thought) like the relevant code has blown a fuse locally. Has anyone else seen this?

The (-) command is not available if a thought has been expanded and does not have any satellite thoughts.
