Feature Suggestion: Open Thought in New Tab (#1362)
Ahh - I hadn't notice a different bug. Other than the one tweak I'd like to see, it seems to work well for me.

Thanks for the explanation.

Feature Suggestion: Open Thought in New Tab (#1362)
I just downloaded the most recent version available to me: 9.0.191.0

As of now, the Open in New Tab feature still works as before - the new tab appears in the out-of-the-box state, rather than the state of the current tab.

Feature Suggestion: Open Thought in New Tab (#1362)
i just got the new beta and see that this feature has been implemented. Super! Thanks.

One tweak and then I think we're golden.

When I open a thought in a new tab, the Plex returns to the out-of-the-box look, Plex divided vertically from the Notes and Attachments. My preference is to have these divided horizontally, especially if a thought has a lot of siblings and children.

What I would like is that the new instance of the Plex have the same look and feel as the way it is in the current Plex.

This is NOT critical to me, but it would give TB9 a lot smoother user experience (at least for this user). 

Thanks for getting this one implemented so quickly. Very much appreciated.

Yep - I'll hang out with Beta for now. [smile]

How stable do you find Alpha? Do you trust your work to it?

Feature Suggestion: Open Thought in New Tab (#1362)
I just downloaded the most recent update available to me on my PC. The version in the About dialog is 9.0.186.0.

I look forward to being able to grab .188.  In that version, does "open thought in new window" appear in the context menu, as well?

request: large icon and thumbnail preview (#3757)
Ahhh - OK. I didn't even notice the metadata before. I can see some utility in that. [smile]

Having the ability to minimize it is satisfactory.

Thanks for the explanation.

request: large icon and thumbnail preview (#3757)
Cool. So out of curiosity, what purpose is the large view of the icon supposed to serve? I can't think of a time that I've ever wanted to see an icon like that up close unless I was editing it. Not a big deal, and since TheBrain's behavior is now one that works for me, it's all good. But I am curious.

Thanks. My memory isn't what it needs to be. [smile]

request: large icon and thumbnail preview (#3757)
Notice how the large icon covers up the image?

[04] 

I'd really like to get rid of it. I already have the icon in the right frame.  Or is there some function that it serves that I've been missing?

Also if there was a way to turn the right frame icons that represents png, jpg, and gif files into thumbnail previews (like what happens in TB8), that would be very much appreciated, too.

feature suggestion: stubs for the Pin bar (#3871)
Excellent! I appreciate that. [smile]

feature suggestion: stubs for the Pin bar (#3871)
Sometimes, the thoughts I'd like to pin have longish titles, and pinning them creates visual clutter. What I really want in the Pin bar is a reminder, not the full thought name.  To this end, I suggest a new field in the thought dialog: a stub.

If I don't fill in the stub field, then the title is what shows up when I pin a thought. But if I enter something in the stub field, then it is the stub that appears rather than the title.

So - an example:

The thought: Meeting notes for 2017-05-13, Jerry's presentation on the Fluxmeter
The stub: Jerry-Fluxmeter 05-13

This is just an on-the-fly example. Hopefully, it's god enough for others to see the value of this. [smile]

Option to disconnect history trail from Wander
I guess I could. [smile]  Thanks.

Option to disconnect history trail from Wander
There are times I want to let TheBrain do a Wanderlust. Most of the time, when I'm done, I'd like to be able to return to my previous work and/or connect disparate thoughts brought together in my mind by Wandering.

But to have the history trail update with every move of the Wander is something I'd really like to turn off as it makes returning to my work more difficult.

There are probably others who have a need to have the history trail update. So I'd like to see this as an option that I can select.

Identifying a Brain in Windows Explorer (#3849)
I like the new capability and look forward to giving it a try. However, when I try to drag the second tab of a brain to its own window, TB9 freezes and offers to continue or restart. When I click Continue, the tab I tried to drag into its own window becomes is frozen and translucent.  When I click to the original window, it is also frozen. And I have to use Window's Task Manager to end the TB9 session.

I'm happy that Expanded view hasn't been abandoned. [smile]
