Can I switch back to using the old style link highlighting, where the entire link changes to a solid color when I hover over it?  I'm not really a fan of the animation that occurs when I hover over a link.


Thanks,
Brent

edit: I've changed my "links normal" and "links highlighted" colors to reduce the contrast between them, which helped to eliminate the 'beacon effect' that I disliked about the animation.

I guess the "Add glow effect" option in the setting is for that, but it is not working for me.

I think the glow effect just softens the link lines and gates, it doesn't disable the animation.

Also the glow effect is constant, meaning that all links glow all the time. 

I like a solid line that simply changes color when you hover over it...i.e., the v6 way.  

Thanks,
Brent

Just to add that I fired up v7 this evening to have a look. Hated the link animation. Definitely need an option to switch if off. Did like the new options for link thickness. Not sure if I will ever use all the additional link functionality.

Just to chime in, I didn't think I'd use the additional link functionality either, but I've been testing the one way links and have already found quite a few situations where they have been useful.

As an example, I have reports that use different databases, and I want a list of reports that use that database. In prior versions I didn't do it as I haven't wanted the report items to have multiple parents that I only need to reference once in a blue moon. However, with one way thoughts I have it set up that when I set the database as the active thought I can see the list of reports, but when the report is active I don't see the database parent.

My first impression was also: wow this is too much! But you get used to it quite quickly. I would still like the option to switch off the animation and will look into ways to make it a little less obstrusive.

Nice update! I was a bit sceptical about the links but every day I see new possibilities...Just today, while adding the new Nobel Prize winners, I was able to put the disciplines (Medicine, Physics, Chemistry, etc.) as named links under the 2011 thought. Very useful for quick info.

- Could we have "private" links? The links would not show in the presentation mode. This way you can add non-public thoughts and material to your presentations. I know that you can make private thoughts, but private links would be way quicker without disturbing the rest of the brain.

Andreas, i'm a little confused ... since you cannot link several thoughts to a specific link, what will be the difference between making the link private rather than the targeted thought ?

(By the way, the "private" option is only used for presentation mode or does it have another purpose ?)

Hi Brice,

I can't help but working with directed arrows that are only visible from one side feels like losing information. 
When I am preparing the presentation I want to be able to go back and forth between the thoughts. But once I am giving the presentation, I want a "fence" around the data that keeps me from stepping into thoughts with, e.g., notes no one should see :-) Having links that can be switched between on/off would be cool.
