Create thoughts:

"thought1;thought2;thought3" (ignore quote marks) using semi-colons between thought names automatically creates multiple thoughts.

"1,2,3" (ignore quote marks) using commas between thought name parts creates variable thought names. If you had a child thought named "1,2,3":
with parent thought "1" active, the child thought would display "2,3"
with parent thought "2" active, the child thought would display "1,3"
with parent thought "3" active, the child thought would display "1,2"

ctrl-mousewheel: increase/decrease space between thoughts in expanded view (Thanks Shiiko!)

Shift-Click: select all thoughts/shortest path between active thought and clicked thought.

Cut and Paste friendly with a couple more options, Cheers!

Create Multiple Thoughts

"thought1;thought2;thought3" (ignore quote marks) using semi-colons between thought names automatically creates multiple thoughts.

 

Create Variable Thought Names

"1, 2, 3" (ignore quote marks) using commas between thought name parts creates variable thought names. If you had a child thought named "1, 2, 3" (notice spaces):
with parent thought "1" active, the child thought would display "2,3"
with parent thought "2" active, the child thought would display "1,3"
with parent thought "3" active, the child thought would display "1,2"

This thread would benefit from a wiki.

Ctrl-click a thought's link gate to select all thoughts linked through that gate.

Is there an (undocumented?) shortcut assigned to the Back/Forward-Buttons on the toolbar?

Insert = Create child

No, there's no shortcut for back and forward buttons yet...

    Hello,
    Thank you for the "shortcut" tip.
    I have added it to my Brain also!

    I am a new user, now Ver 4.

    I hope you can help...
    I accidently INCREASED THE SIZE of the Font in the Plex.
    I do not know how I made the change, asnd I am not able to reduce the font size.

    Any sugegstions?
    Very truly yours,
    Robert

    Hi rfanning, in the Plex, use the mouse wheel to change the font size.

    On the comma trick:

    I created new brain with home thought foo, then children 1, 2, and 3, then child "1, 2, 3" of 1, then linked grandchild to each of 2 and 3 as parents, and sure enough, got the predicted behavior when and only when 1, 2, or 3 is the selected thought.

    1. Um, why would one want this behavior?

    I then created new children of foo as red, green, and blue, then child "red, green, blue" of red, then linked new grandchild to each of green and blue as parents.  Once again, I got the predicted behavior.

    However, when I now select 1, 2, or 3, I no longer get the predicted behavior for "1, 2, 3".  It appears that only the latest grandchild created in this way works, which leads me to...

    2. Is this just a bug at this point?  Not only do I not understand why one would want the behavior, but it also doesn't work most of the time.
