    Make everything private
    Harlan, I did check it using two different browsers and I was 100 % logged out - sorry.
    Make everything private
    Two bugs though...
    - If all the thoughts are private, all thoughts are shown in the public brain
    - In the public brain all pins (even those that are private) are shown and the corresponding thoughts are accessible
    Make everything private
    Thanks Harlan. That worked! My computer had to pull an all-nighter, but it got there eventually.
    Make everything private
    First of all, I really like theBrain in its 9th version. So much more powerful than V8 - Congratulations!

    I also like the sharing function introduced in the last installments. One question - is it possible to set all thoughts as private? Having a large brain it is more convenient to start from all-private-thoughts and then make them public than the other way around...
    Feature Request: Support Split Screen Multitasking in iOS 9. (#311)
    Split screen would indeed be extremely useful and would increase productivity.
    With the TB buttons on the left and right side of the screen I have to constantly move the floating window...

    Unlike Juan, I actually really use the author's names a lot. The papers are connected to a parent with the name of the author: AUTHOR, papers.
    The authors that appear on a regular basis have three children: AUTHOR, papers; AUTHOR, students; AUTHOR, science. The main thought with just the AUTHOR name, is connected to the institute as a parent. 
    This setting allows me to see the environment of the author; why is he/she working together with this particular other author. The students tell me about the mind-set of the "descendants" of that specific school (group). And the science thought is populated whenever I see the author give a talk at a conference. The conference itself has a CONFERENCE NAAME, science child which allows me to quickly see who was at a particular conference. And when I see another talk by the same author, I continue jotting down notes where I have stopped after the last talk.
    And I attach a lot of slides via the take-a-photo possibility of the mobile app.
    I do not have specific tags or parents for journals because for me it is not important where the work was published.

    Liz Ann,

    The power of TheBrain lies in tuning it to your own needs. I.e. I second others in thinking that automatic import into TheBrain is not a good way forward. We have automatic import into other programs, like Endnote you have mentioned. This is a perfect program for reference management when you write your papers, and I use it for exactly this. However, linking ideas between articles in TheBrain, this is work you need to do by hand because that is where you tune your system, where you input the data in such a way that you will find them in the future.
    The system you have presented in the small brain is way too complicated to maintain over years. I work with pdf's I label with year, journal, mainauthor (1993, JPerkinTrans1, Haines). This I link to the author's name and the field keywords. As children I have the title (a type, different color) and the main messages of the paper as individual thoughts. After having linked more than a thousand papers, it still works and I find very interesting connections. But, you have to put in the work. 
    iOS preferences (#285)
    Oh, you are correct. I only looked at the text before I pressed enter...
    iOS preferences (#285)
    Ebuise, if you deactivate "hoofdlettergevoelig" in you settings, will this work? At least that is the thing I deactivated in my settings...
    iOS preferences (#285)
    I am also running iOS 10.3.3. I found the setting under "settings" , "general", "keyboards". I have a couple of different languages active. Just above "auto-correct", I find the "auto-capitalization" slider.

    Automatic capitalization is actually part of the iOS system, not the Brain. Turn it off under "keyboards" in the "settings" of your machine.
    Can't open the new version
    Same here. On my iphone, the app freezes on the welcome screen. The app is opened in the background, though, but it is not responsive.
    it works!
    Wow! My large brain downloaded without problems. The program works like a charm. TheBrain is back on my home screen. Congratulations!
