hi, v8 really looks great.   i have few remarks / suggestions

1) it seems that the XML export does NOT export labels/tags/link types  etc

2) it seems not possible to set the link type for multiple links in one go (for example after selection all child thoughts i would like to set all links to a certain link type

3) it seems not possible to have multiple lins between thoughts

4) it does not seem possbile to   display both a link type and label on a link  ..

5) it seems not possible to display / search based on link type / link label

6) it would be great if dat can be exported as JSON

thx koen
Best regards,

kick... kick ... pretty enthousiastic about pb8   however

1) i think    labels / types  / tags    on thoughts and links   is    a bit half/half implemented

for example if you create either  a  linktype   OR   a label   on a link   the result looks the same but it is actually not ....    

pb8 is imho very very consistent overall except for the handling of types / labels / tags  on thoughts and links ...


plse consider cleaning this area  a little  up..

i would propose a link having a    type   And   properties (key / value)

the same for a thought    ... a type    ... and properties (key/value)

2) plse investigate if labels / tags / types can be exported using the xml export

3) plse offer a json export of the data

personally i will use PB8 to fill / maintain my brain  and i want to export the thoughts and links and import these in a graph database as nodes / relations  to do     pattern matching analysis... other visualizations (d3) etc

this can be pretty straight forward when having a good export facility

therefor i am also not using the siblings .. just parent / child .. like a regular graph


4)  i have notices that the the list of thoughts that is dynamically presented when for example creating a chils can only contain a limited number of lines ... for example i have 7000 thought starting with same word ... ...when trying to add one of these as parent most of them are not displayed

5) plse allow for more than one link between thoughts


thx koen

hello there

what exactly do you mean by this :

5) plse allow for more than one link between thoughts

the single, most distinguishing feature of TheBrain is the automatic force-directed layout.
How can you expect that to handle multilinks between 2 thoughts ?
we're not using CmapTools here ... please explain

thanks

maybe other thing..

how can i find/replace words on a lot of thoughts

so select some thoughts and do a find replace

bla1.text
bla2.text

find "bla"  replace "koen"

koen1.text
koen2.text


not only on thought text .. but also on labels etc

thx koen
Best regards,

Search does not have this functionality. You can only search for a thought, label a.o., there is no replace function.

I am not seeing this. Everything exported fine for me.

This functionality does not exist and may not for a while.

Correct. Only one or the other can be displayed. This is the same for Thought labels and Thought Types

I will share this suggestion with our engineers.

hi patrick thanks

1) i assume you also share my other suggestions with the developers ?

2) i do not see the tag for a thought in xml

<Thought>
            <guid>C4E04F68-C051-2071-CBCE-6AF7802E90C7</guid>
            <name>org.oasis</name>
            <label></label>
            <creationDateTime>2012-03-22 06:19:23.246 @+0100</creationDateTime>

            <linksModificationDateTime>2013-11-12 06:07:11.729 @+0100</linksModificationDateTime>
            <isType>0</isType>
            <color>0</color>
            <accessControlType>0</accessControlType>
        </Thought>

the label is empty but the thought has a tag named "standard" ..(ref attached screenshot) . where should that be ?

thx koen

In the XML File, tags are treated as a separate thought, so there should be a <Thought> section with the name Standard. The two are linked in the <Links> section.
