Are we supposed to be able to drag in mail messages?
Now that I am using TB9 more intensively this is something I sometimes want to do but seems never to work, either dragging to plex, or to notes, or on top of thought. Only way is to copy paste message from mail into notes, and of course that loses the link to the original message (and thread).

Is that right? For some reason I thought dragging (or some kind of direct import) from mail was a possibility?

This was in earlier versions is there a specific reason you have left it out.  Its very useful.

TheBrain 9 is a rebuild from scratch. They haven't been able to include all functionality yet (versions 3-8 evolved over many years).
macOS 10.13
TheBrain 9.0.248

Roy,

As zenrain mentioned, TheBrain 9 is a complete rebuild from the ground up and not a simple upgrade from TheBrain 8. Our engineers have done their best to implement most of the important features under this new codebase but some features are more difficult to implement and will take longer which will likely cause them to be pushed to an interval update instead of our initial release.

Can you at least hint at where this feature is in the priority queue? I am also wanting to be able to do this.

For example is it a planned feature or still in the backlog?

Thanks,

Matt

More development for compatibility with Outlook and Mac Mail is planned for the future, but no release date is available. Also, you can now drag your email to your desktop and then into TheBrain or directly into the Thought folder. This creates a copy of the original message, archived in TheBrain. I don't believe that functionality was available when this post was first written.

Thank you,
Matt

Thanks Matt. It's a reasonable workaround and using DropZone means not having to muck about with the Desktop.
