Thanks for the orphan creator Omnibox!
I just noticed that I can create orphan thoughts with the Omnibox again (like in TB8)!  Fantastic.

Thank you!

Tags and types panes? (#3409 and #3646)
I guess I can do that. It's not my preference, but it's serviceable.

Thanks for the idea.

Tags and types panes? (#3409 and #3646)
I am resurrecting this because I sorely needed the TB8 style tags and types panes this evening.

I want to be able to create a number of tags without relating them to any thought in particular. Unless I'm missing something, there is no way to do that in TB9.  I think this is unfortunate.

Isn't there some way to bring back the tags and types panes. They were so useful to me in TB8!

Feature Changed - Please Change Back... Regarding Recent History list
In TB8, when you clicked the History (clock) icon in the lower left of TB8's window, you got a nice clean list of the thoughts that had been created or modified for a given day.  And as near as I can tell, you could go back a long, long time in list.

In TB9, when you click the analogous icon toward the upper right of the window, you get a much shorter Recent Changes List. And this list is cluttered with thoughts that were recently deleted (I suppose deletion does comprise a change).

I sorely miss the TB8 feature and have virtually no use for the TB9 iteration. I don't need to be reminded of thoughts that I deleted. For the most part, good riddance to them. I suppose if I was doing some sort of audit of the brainbase, it might be useful. But you could simply have a statistic showing the ratio of the number of deleted thoughts to the number of total thoughts.

If there is any way to bring back the TB8 version of this, that would be super.

Thanks,

feature request - override icons in thought types
I've used screen capture before, and it works fine. It's just that it's a lot to do compared to just having the icon show up.

But it is a workaround that I will consider.

Thanks.

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?

feature suggestion: hashtags for inline tagging (#4038)
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.
