Google Calendar Sync!!

Thanks for adding this function. It is quite helpful to see calendared items in the timeline view. Turning on linking to my gCal was a breeze, though I'll admit I didn't think it was working properly when items didn't just automatically show up. It might be less confusing if the act of linking automatically included a synchronization, so items would appear, or at least display an indicator that it is linked, but unsync'd. 

This is probably a big ask, but we use several calendars. The ability to link to more than one would be helpful. Thanks again. It is great to see all of the parts coming together.

All I want to do is Renew
Quote: In my case, the renewal was announced a week or so ago in an email -- a fait accompli, with no advance warning or option to cancel or decline.   

Same here. I almost anger called to cancel, but backed off. Would be good to not create customer angst.

Notes Cursor "Jumping" Issues Resolved?
So far so good. It's even working with Apple Dictation now. Nice. Thank you.
Not possible to write under a horizontal ruler in Notes with list above. (#3869)
Confirmed with Antonio68's steps. I also found if I create three items as per step 1, then a 4th checkbox but insert the line without pressing return, I am unable to delete the empty 4th item.

Excellent news, Harlan. Thanks for the update.

I would like the ability to import date/time data. Currently, it's quite easy to import Thought data as a text file. How would this work with Event data? Likewise, copying Event data using something like the current "Copy as Text Outline" for selected Thoughts.

As a daily user, I'm excited about the possibility of the timeline, but just waiting for Google Calendar integration. Just to verify, this is still coming, right? Until that happens, I'd just be playing around with the timeline rather than actually using it in my work. I only mention this because I'd like to be helpful and involved in the beta process, but I've learned the hard way that using multiple calendars can have unintended consequences. What I'm hoping for is synchronization with Google Calendar, or iCal which can then do the syncing just the same. Thanks. 
Notes Indicator Missing (#3587)
I just did a little sleuthing, and the notes indicators appear in my main brain. I didn't notice they were missing until I copied a large branch of that brain and pasted it into a new brain. All the thoughts, attachments, and notes appear in the new brain, just no note indicators. 

In order to test for 8 vs 9 notes. I copied another section of my main brain with older notes, plus one newer note, into a new brain. You are correct. The newer note has an indicator, the older ones don't. Hope this helps.
Notes Indicator Missing (#3587)
The notes icon is missing in .157. My preferences are set correctly. No change after restart, or toggling the pref.
Where is the "Report"-button on the top right side?
I like the right-click option that quickly shows Timeline and Report. I also appreciate the recently modified thoughts report. It is a great tool to get back on track. It would be fine, imho, if it appeared as a right-click on the plex option as well, but would also make sense if it fell within the Report section.
Search for Notes and Attachments very, very slow (#3440, #3495, #3517 and #3518)
Quote: I'm curious now: Is it slow for all searches or just for specific terms?

Just specific terms, but it does seem to have to do with the word length, i.e. a single short word is nearly instant, a long word can take an indeterminate and inconsistently long time.

Quote: Does the searching for the same term return at different speeds in different brains?

Same word, different speeds on different machines. If you have a test brain you'd like me to try on two different machines, I'd be happy to give it a go for you.  
Search for Notes and Attachments very, very slow (#3440, #3495, #3517 and #3518)
Here are the results:

Terminal search with - mdfind -onlyin /Users/danlandrum/Documents/Brains/U01/B01 "referendum" - results are immediate.
Searching for "referendum" in TB9 .151 took 24 seconds on my iMac Retina 5k, but was almost instant on my MacBook Pro with the same brain.

I wonder if this is still something to do with performance on the 5k iMac?

Manual download of b152?
Check for update still seeing 151 as the latest release on the alpha channel for me, too.
Search for Notes and Attachments very, very slow (#3440, #3495, #3517 and #3518)
It takes 7 or 8 seconds on my Brain before populating the list. Clearing and retyping the same word does not speed it up. I'm looking to find the single word "referendum." The result is nine hits, 3 being notes, 6 pdfs. They all appear at the same moment, with no indication that anything is happening. The kicker is that sometimes it returns nothing at all, and I don't know if I should keep waiting, or try another search term. If I just wait, the list will sometimes populate after a protracted time, guessing 30 seconds or more. Attaching log.

Added -  I thought I'd try the same search in Spotlight, and the top of the list indicated "Indexing . . .." Could something in TheBrain have triggered an index?

I very much appreciate the update, Harlan. Thank you.
