The context for making this comment was "we" being people who are not happy with the menu appearing and disappearing. I realize there are many people happy with, and enjoying, the menu exactly as it is. zenrain wrote: If I remember correctly, in TheBrain 8 the notes menu was always available, but you had to select the notes pane somehow (either by clicking or keyboard shortcut) to be able to apply a menu option or interact with it.
Actually, this is not how the notes work in my Win7 installation of TB8.-- In TB8 the note editor is ON by default. This means that in my installation of TB8, text can be highlighted and immediately edited without any extraneous mouse clicking. Not so in TB9.-- In TB9, the note editor is OFF by default. The editor, and the note menu, are immediately activated with a mouse click in the note field. As a result, this creates at least 2 instances where extra mouse clicks are required.
(1) There is an extra mouse click any time you want to highlight and edit existing text in the note editor.-- Notice that any highlight you add with the menu HIDDEN will disappear with the first mouse click, which opens the editor and activates the menu.-- Then you have to re-highlight the text again to be able to interact with the note menu.(2) Any time you've been working in the note field, an extra click is required to access the +# attachment tab (if the attachments are displaying as tabs above the note editor):-- The first click will close the editor.-- The second click will allow you to view the list of attachments on the +# tab.Both of these problems could be resolved for those of us who use the notes editor frequently by providing an option for us to keep the notes editor (and the note menu) turned ON by default.For those who are happy with the current menu/editor behavior, no change would be needed at all.
