Youtube Links
Parents with youtube links all start playing in the background simultaneously. When moving cursor around with mouse, parent youtube video is activated with background playing for all videos at the same time.

No way to know which videos are playing. Only option is to close brain and reopen. For Brains with multiple media links this make the brain unusable.

This bug was mentioned many versions ago.

Can I disable this function/bug?

Version 9.0.98


Thanks

Bug report: Website background autoplay cascade
I have a parent thought that is linked to a youtube page. Each time I hover over the parent thought either intentionally or in passing the youtube video autoplays in the background. In each pass a new instance begins playing in the background simultaneously.

No way of knowing what video is playing. I just have to close the brain to stop all the audio channels from playing.

Unable to install the latest version of Brain 9 re: virus warning
Yeah me too. Avira antivirus warning and disinfection.
What I am missing in TB9
The only issue that we are running into with the new tag layout is that our company has a very large PB 1.2 tb, media storage etc. Our brain has a couple hundred tags. With the PB8 method we could display a large number of them by resizing the tag window. With the new arrangement we will have to scroll thru all of them to get to specific tags. This might slow our workflow somewhat. Being able to create a detachable elongated tag window might be a solution.


Thanks for a fine product.

Drag and Drop failure OS X 10.10
Drag and drop stopped functioning midday. I didn't restart PB, it just stopped working. When I drag an icon.file from the desktop it does not ingest the file. The green plus sign does not appear and when I release the mouse button the icon slides back to the desktop instead of appearing in the brain. 

In order to ingest a file I have to attach file thru the thought menu.


Java is current and I rebooted my mac with no success.

Drag and Drop failure OS X 10.10
Downloaded and installed the file. It worked for a few days and just stopped working today. I confirmed that I am running the latest version of Java.

Drag and Drop failure OS X 10.10
Since loading 8.0.1.6 and installing the latest Java the drag and drop function of files and attachments doe's not work. I've verified via the Java site that I am running the latest version and OS X says its current version also.


Please assist.


Thanks

Bug Report
It was a 25mb PDF and looks like it was a one time occurrence.  I can't duplicate it.

Thanks

Bug Report
Well done. Truly is a nice application with a user friendly GUI. I look forward to seeing it grow and taking advantage of its potential.

I have an issue when I try and attach a PDF from the inbox where PB iOS then freezes at "0% Uploading" for the past hour. It initially ran to 3% then back to 0%. The PDF is 25mb in size. If there is a log function I'd be happy to send it


Only solution is to hard shutdown the application and reopen.

Thanks

Lets talk security?
Thank you for the responses.

The whitepaper does not mention the Notes as being encrypted. It that the case also?


Thanks again.
Lets talk security?
I can't seem to find any information on security.

1) How secure is the information stored on cloud server. Is encryption implemented?

2) If not is there a plan to implement encryption? What security arrangements have been made meanwhile?

3) If servers are encrypted, is there a white-paper available for the customer to review?


Thanks
GUI update needed. Time to refocus.
Usability improved.

link added.

maybe. But I was particularly referring to.

Improving Blender - Part 1: Where It's Broken.



Thou the application/tool is different he goes over the key set of universally recognized rules for proper design of an interface. He also sources some text book material and authors. He does a great job and exposes weakness that PB should be aware of. He continues further with part 2 etc.

I'll have watch the live 
presentation you linked. It might have similar material.

GUI update needed. Time to refocus.
PB emphasizes productivity but has not updated their GUI outside of the plex very much in recent memory and I've had every version since 4. With all of the functionality suppressed in drop down menus and keyboard shortcuts this is anti productive. Tabs and ribbons are needed aka microsoft office applications and many others. These companies have used human factors engineering and millions to refine their interfaces for maximum productivity. Tabs and ribbons are common in other applications also because they are proven to be very effective at improving work flow.

Andrew Price has an informative youtube video set on interface design laws and considerations. PB should look at these. The current interface is well overdue. We are visual creatures. Updating the interface will also attract more purchases in the future. The marketing aspect of releasing new versions with minimal interface improvement defies the human impulse of new and improved. 

Summary: I think Productivity and Marketing are aspects that need improvement with this product. The core application is wonderful. A very solid foundation.

Thanks

Evolution - Revolution or Stagnancy
It is indeed unfortunate that everyone is trying to de-evolve us back to the old client/mainframe model. This is clearly an attempt to increase profits by forcing a subscription process. Effective syncing services can be achieved by the individual with appropriate software without a subscription cloud. I have a 2TB hard drive online that I sync with using kickstarter hardware.

I believe the model that proved successful for many companies for decades should be maintained. Local software continually updated and improved is the way to go. Many companies have grow to billion dollar companies using that tried and proven model.

The market is driving us to a system to increase their profits while not truly improving productivity. Syncing and online storage can be achieved by the individual for a fixed cost. PB should not abandon their desktop software for cloud services. I believe that would be a big mistake.

It's been over a year since 7.0.4.5. I hope this isn't going where I think it is. Billions can still be made the old way. Focus on the tool.
