Linux PB falling behind Windows?

I'm going to give it another shot, now that I have a much faster computer. Maybe I need to make sure I'm using the proprietary Java? I'm not sure if I was before.



I was having the same problem, personal brain was really slow in Ubuntu 10.04. Turns out i was running java version 6 update 20. I upgraded to update 26 and it runs waaaay faster
Drag and Drop into Notes panel
Never mind, i can instead copy and paste images into the notes panel, its just the drag and drop doesn't work very well as previously pointed out by others
Drag and Drop into Notes panel
Just wondering if there is a way to get drag and drop functionality for the notes panel. I can copy and paste text alright, but i can't drag and drop pictures/images from my browser into my notes. When i do i just get the html tags.


Is their a work-around?

*So this is when the preferences open before it opens my brain, it wants my username and email before it will proceed. I input those 2 things then i press ok and nothing happens.

Preferences Problem
I have reinstalled it, i have the latest java release (21) and i am running windows xp professional 32bit and i still have the same problem. My preferences menu will not accept new changes.
Preferences Problem
I cannot change my preferences because after I'm done tinkering with them, i go to press 'OK' and it doesn't do anything. So I'm forced to choose the cancel option, which therefore means that my changes were never accepted.

What do i do?

RSS Thoughts
Interesting Idea.

I don't think it would be a good fit for the brain. It would get really cluttered really fast (depending on what you subscribe to).

Unless you had some google reader features that allowed you to 'mark all as read' and then delete the thought, but that would require a lot of work i imagine
Can't change some aspects of my Colour Sceme
Well i fixed it, but im not 100% satisfied with the fix. It turns out that when i disable "thicken Highlighted Links" in the Look&Feel tab in preferences, i am able to change the colour of highlighted links. Doesn't make much sense. I would like my highlighted links to be thickened.

any comments?

Can't change some aspects of my Colour Sceme
As the subject implies, i can't change some aspects of my colour scheme. Aspects including highlighted links, gates,active thougt.

What could be my problem. and what are gates?

Also is there a way to change the colour of distant thoughts in expanded view?

Also im running Personal Brain Core 5.5.2.3 which may be my problem

Additional Link Options
Thanks guys. I should really check the board before i post, or perhap its good to bring it up again.

Thank you Moski for suggesting VUE, im using it and really liking it, any other good program suggestions?


Additional Link Options
I think this is a good, simple idea

Right now thoughts are connected by a simple line, however if you were able to customize this say by using an arrow to Imply that "such and such leads to such and such" I believe this would go a long way in addressing the link problem (being why are these two thoughts linked?)

For example I'm using Personal brain to take notes in my biology course. When listing the components of a chemical pathway i could use an arrow to show
Glucose -> G3P in glycolysis.  <-> could be used to convey a mutual relationship.

Anyways what do you guys think. any suggestions, questions?
New Thought Type:Connection thought type
Thanks, i didn't understand the posts before, too bad you need pro/core version to do link types. But your right there is nothing stopping me from making a connection thought. Just learning the ropes ty


New Thought Type:Connection thought type
Well, what i have in mind is completely new thought that 'bridges' two thoughts with its own notes page, a connection thought.
Say you want to explain why two thoughts are connected, sure you can write the reason down in the notes section of one of the two thoughts, but if that thought also connects with many other thoughts, its not instantly intuitive which thought that note is directly referring to.
So if you could create a connection thought between 2 thoughts, you could see why they are connected.

See what i mean?
