PB v6 did introduce Thought URLs, which seem to work well in Windows, but have yet to come to the Mac version. As I understand things, the current state of play is as follows:
- Right click on a Thought
- Copy Thought URL
- Paste this into the document from which you want to hyperlink from
- The format of the URL starts with brain:// which is supposed to tell the OS to treat this type of hyperlink as a PersonalBrain link and to launch the app
I see from a few other threads that this should be coming soon, but it seems a long time in coming. Evernote manages this wee trick very nicely so at least there is an example of how it can be done (and Evernote is open source, isn't it?).
I have tried using Rubicode's Default Apps preference pane to try to resolve this. Frustratingly, PersonalBrain does not show up either in the URLs tab or in the Apps tab. (Evernote does for both so I don't think the problem is with Rubicode). I have looked for other solutions eg using Command-I but this only applies to file types, not URL types.
Any other suggestions? Or does anybody know how to make PersonalBrain show up in Rubicode's tool? Or can somebody point the PB dev team towards the relevant section in the Evernote code base to prod them onwards to implement this wee fix.
