feature request - override icons in thought types
Right - I want the attachment icon to have priority in this case. I dragged in a url from Wikipedia, and its icon is what I want to show. But since the type has an icon, it doesn't.

When I click the icon box for a thought, I get three choices: select stock icon, choose file, and capture image.

Maybe if we could add a fourth choice: use attachment icon.

As long as there is only one attachment, this shouldn't be confusing. If there is more than one attachment, e.g., from YouTube and from Wikipedia, the attachment icon choice could be grayed out. 
feature request - override icons in thought types
Currently, if a thought type has an icon, then whatever thoughts are of that type, they get that icon as well. 

There are times, however, that another icon, e.g., the icon of a website is more meaningful to me. I'd like the ability to override the type's icon so that other icons shine through or can be assigned.

Thoughts?

Feature Request: radio tags
+1 - great idea
feature suggestion: hashtags for inline tagging (#4038)
Thanks for the updated edit above, Patrick. When I said that TB9 didn't perform full text searches, at the time my copy of TB9 wasn't behaving properly.  I just did an update to the most recent release and also had to reboot my system (for a different reason). Now I can do full text searches.

So - happily, my hashtag idea is relevant. Now - I'll patiently wait till it becomes a reality!

You guys at TheBrain rock. [smile]

Thanks much.

Cool - It's nice to know I'm not out in left field with this idea. [smile]

Suggestion: Feature Request Status Sheet
OK - I understand.  So full-text search, which we discussed a little earlier today in another thread; would that be considered a "major feature," and so, that won't be brought back anytime soon?

Thanks, Patrick.

Suggestion: Feature Request Status Sheet
I would find it very useful to have a list of the suggestions that have been made for TB9 with a column for status that would include:

- under consideration
- in development
- not going to happen this time
- not going to happen ever
- developed and being tested
- released

If the person making the suggestion could be noted (not all that important), then I could look for the requests I've made and see where things stand.

If an ETA column could also be added, that would be super.

Thoughts?

No - I think we're now on the same page. When full-text search again becomes available, then my suggestion will become relevant. [smile]

Thanks much.

feature suggestion: hashtags for inline tagging (#4038)
Let me ask a related question and then answer you.

Does TB9 perform full text searches like TB8 did? In TB8, when I would press enter after creating a search, even if there were no thoughts with the word in the thought title, TB8 would show a long list of thoughts that contained the word.  That does not seem to happen in TB9.

Without a full text search capability, my suggestion goes away. There is no point.  Without full text search, there's no way to detect whether a thought's note contains the hashtag.

If I am correct and TB9 doesn't support full text search, is that something that will be coming back? (I hope)

Regards,

Sure - In Facebook, when I write a post that includes #thinkaboutit, after I go ahead and post it, I can click on the hashtag and see a lot of entries with that hashtag. The beauty of it is that another entry might have that hashtag and another related to it. So now I can have hashtags that lead to exploring other hashtags.

In Facebook, there's a much larger social element than in my use of TB9 (I don't do any collaboration).  But the idea is the same. Over time, my repository of thoughts could include clickable hashtags that bring up other related thoughts.

Basically, it would be telling TB9 to execute a search on the hashtag; in this case "thinkaboutit."  This makes each thought potentially the repository of a context relevant canned search.

Does this make sense?

feature suggestion: hashtags for inline tagging (#4038)
I propose that TB9 be outfitted with hashtags as both searches and links, much as is done in Facebook.  It is now a very common practice in other environments to use hashtags, and I would very much like to have it here.

This would let me create inline tags without cluttering up the tags list, so that I could reserve the tags list for just a few important tags.

Also - hashtags would let me visually connect, within the text, to other thoughts containing the same hashtags.  In other words, I'd like to be able to click on a hashtag in a thought's note and have it show a list of all the thoughts containing the hashtag.

I don't know how hard it would be to do this or if I'm the only one who would find it useful. But I figure it doesn't hurt to ask. [smile]

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.
