Hi there, happy to be here.  Here is a link illustrating my issue:

[FhcqWdD]  I wish to sort things alphabetically, so the lowest number appears first, and the highest number appears last.  I right click the screen when in this view, and arrange the thoughts by name, yet nothing happens.

Is there some step I'm missing?

Thanks for your time,

Mark

Mark,

Alphanumeric is the default sorting action. The problem is the way you have your thoughts numbered. If you have 3 digit numbers, all numbers need to have 3 digits. Same goes for 4, 5 digits and so on.

I'd like to point out, that TheBrain 9 will also feature a new HIDDEN ordering system.  In short, you can name a group of thoughts:

.01 Review
.02 Ask Questions
.03 Provide Answers
.04 Backup Data

And they will appear in theBrain as:

Review
Ask Questions
Provide Answers
Backup Data

When you open the individual Thought Properties Display - you'll see the full name to edit if needed.

Thanks,
Matt
