Feature request: Default Zoom command
I like that I can change the zoom level. 

I would find it very useful to have a button or in the context menu on the plex an option to return to the default zoom. As it is, I have to step through multiple zooms and remember what was the default.

Alternatively, a status message telling me what the zoom level is would be a good thing, too, where 100% means I'm at the default.

Thanks.

Feature request: Edit notes in external editor (#3652)
The thought of being able to open to Word or OO, or something else occurred to me as well, but I thought I'd keep my opener simple. [smile]  Glad you mentioned it - and then went beyond my original thinking. 

+1 on your expansion of the idea
Feature request: Edit notes in external editor (#3652)
Thank you Zenrain for the workaround. That is helpful. It's not smooth, but it's helpful.

Now since the file is saved as HTML with the HTML extension, double-clicking opens it in the browser. To open it in a text editor I have to drag the file to an open text editor or right-click the file and choose "Open With..." and then select the editor.  I'm asking for a one-click solution.

Now - as to the user population... I think that there are a lot of people who know how to write in HTML and would be happy to do so. I'm not a developer and I know and enjoy writing in HTML - and a little bit in CSS.  The point is - different strokes for different folks. I am not asking for anything to be taken away. I am asking for a new capability. If some people don't see its value, that's cool. But for me, and clearly from the +1s that this idea has received, there are people who would welcome it.

How many? I haven't a clue. Maybe the entire population of users who like this idea already +1'd it. In which case my idea should go nowhere. But if there is a sizable subset of users who would find it useful, then perhaps it can be considered.  

Also +1 galactic_star's augmentation of my idea.

Feature request: Edit notes in external editor (#3652)
Currently TB9 has a button that when clicked opens a thought's note in the default (?) browser.  That's OK, but not really something that I need. (Others might find that very useful, which is fine. I'm not asking for that button to be changed at all.)

I'd like a second button right next to the Open in Browser button that lets me open the note in a user selected word processor or text editor. I'm assuming that bold, italic, etc. are handled with HTML style markups. So when opened in a text editor, it would be useful to have all markups intact. 

When I completed work in the text editor and saved/closed the file, the note would be updated inside TB9.

The big advantage to me is that my text editor is far more robust than TB9's.

For simple notes, TB9's notes editor is fine. But for something more extensive, I'd very much like to have the ability to go from the note to the text editor of my choice.

Thanks.

Tags and types panes? (#3409 and #3646)
A more permanent display will be very useful to me. Good to know it's been requested.

Deleting more than one thought crashes TB9 (#3643)
I just tried it again after rebooting my system, and couldn't replicate it either. Sorry about that.

Cool - thank you, Harlan. Much appreciated.

Customize the toolbar? (#3642)
TB8 and TB9 both have HUGE amounts of real estate available in the toolbar. I would so love to be able to customize it and make commonly used menu choices and options one-click wonders.  Customizable toolbars have been available in software since the time of the dinosaurs. [smile] Please!

Tags and types panes? (#3409 and #3646)
I use tags and types panes extensively in TB8.  Have they persisted into TB9?  If so, how do I show them.  The choice ought to be in the View menu - or so it seems to me.

Deleting more than one thought crashes TB9 (#3643)
When I select more than one thought and then shift-right-click inside the Selected Thoughts Pane, and then click Delete, TB9 crashes.

Selecting multiple thoughts
OS: Windows 10

In TB8 I can crawl through the thoughts through children, parents, and jumps. Very handy. In TB9 it appears I have to touch each thought manually. Not much fun when I have more than 20 thoughts to work with at the same time.

Also, when I select more than one thought, the selection pane appears - and it is wide. And I can't adjust the width. It covers up the left thoughts. I can still select them through the pane, but, but I have to guess where they are. Not good. Please make this pain adjustable and/or let me adjust the opaqueness. 

And also - please bring back Crawl, or let me know if it's already there and I'm just missing it.

Thanks.

dragging thoughts to the pin bar (#3641)
I don't know if the "Pin Bar" is the correct term. Please confirm or correct me.

I'm a Window 10 User.

In TB8 I could drag thoughts to the top of the Plex and they'd be pinned. I can't seem to do that in TB9. If this isn't just happening on my mahcine and if it's not intentional, I'd very much like to have that capability restored.

Thanks.
