I know I can create a child who has multiple parent, but it makes information confusing(at least for me).
so I try to make only one parent for a child, but some times, often when recording "other" thoughts, it seems that the "other thought" can have the previous as a child, but it's from the point of view of this "other thought".  from the point of view of the original child thought, this new "parent" is not as important. so it's better to see it as a jump link. 

to avoid having multiple parent, I add a "proxy", then jump link to the real thought, but it's inconvenient.

it maybe difficult to understand what I am talking, so I take some snapshot to demo it.

Hi nottycyn,

Thanks for your idea. I can see how two Thoughts might lead to a child Thought, but from the point of view of that child, one parent Thought is more important than the other. Since there is not currently a way to display a Thought as a different relationship depending on the direction (parent>child vs child>jump) I would color code the link between them, or use a tag. This way I could tell at a glance which parent is the important one, and which one is only weakly linked to the child Thought.

Cheers, Sean
