Just realized that there's no menu item "File > Open ..." to open an existing brain. Currently, this function can only (?) be reached by clicking onto the small "+"-sign. The shortcut cmd-O, used by most other Apps on macOS to open an existing file/project/image/whatsoever is used by TB10 to open the/an attachment of the current thought - and that's something quite different ...

The other missing, but helpful menu item is "Help > Search for ...". I like to use this to find/identify specific menu items. Some Apps also show help topic related to the search criteria entered here (e.g. Mail).

Good points, but ... 

The developers at TheBrain don't want you to "Open" a brain by navigating to a folder. Also, there's no way of viewing recently-opened brains.  

There's no Help other than the online video tutorials and the Transition Guide.

There's only that small icon ...

... you have to click to get a tile view of the existing brains.
I would like to see a menu item, and a shortcut for this function (i.e. "click on +").

It would be nice to navigate this tile view with the cursor keys, and open one of those brains with e.g. <Return>.

A menu item "File > Open recently ..." would of course speed up this task.

Christian,

File > New Tab would be the equivalent of clicking on the small + icon.  I'll document the request to then be able to select a Brain from the thumbnail list with arrows/return key.

Thanks,
Matt

Matt,

thank you, "File > New Tab" is indeed what I was looking for. In remembrance of spreadsheet apps I interpreted "New Tab" as "add another tab with another view for the current/same brain".
To be honest, I would prefer "Open" instead of "New Tab".

And, considering the hint of Cerebrum about not opening brains from folders, the menu item "File" is wrong. With TB, we do not juggle "files", but "brains". By this, "File > New Tab" rather should be "Brain > Open".

Yes, we are planning to rename the File menu to Brain eventually.
