New gCal sync problem in 9.0.246.0 ?
Quote: I delete in my Google Calendar some events for instance, and a few minutes later they come back. I can delete them as much as I want, they always comme back.

Happened also to me until I stopped using calendar sync in TB9.

Recent history gone (#4656)
Yesterday I updated to 9.0.242.0. The History showed then only the current day. Now I can see yesterday and today in the history but not older issues. In the individual thoughts history older events can be seen.

Notes: moving a line up or down with a shortcut (#4287)
When editing todo-lists it would be very handy to have a shortcut for moving a line up or down - like in Word (ctrl-shift-arrow_up | _arrow_down). You could manually sort any list in new order in just seconds. Now you have to use: choose line > cut > move cursor > paste.

  • first line of ToDo-list
  • second line
  • thirdh line
  • fourth line of ToDo-list (but must be done first)

Tags and types panes? (#3409 and #3646)

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.


One workaround is to make a temporary thought [search box: tmp; press flash symbol to make a lonely thought] and add multiple new tought tags to it by pressing Enter and command-G and typing: "tag1;tag2;tag3;tag4". Then you can forget the temporary thought.

Missing Attachment Tabs

I managed to repeat the problem few times (not always) by 'Open thought in another tab' - click to Notes - hide plex. Normal mode returned after 'Rotate Splitter'.

The same happens occasionally  to me also.

Mind Map view, cannot change the active thought

To activate another thought to be the "center", right click and choose activate. Also, clicking a thought from the history list (bottom list of thoughts) or a pinned thought activates it. 


Also Shift-Enter will do the same. Quite handy, I use it all the time.

Can't open the new version

I deleted and re-installed the app and that worked for me.

Had to re-download my sync Brains again.



That helped me. Now everything working perfectly. 

Unfortunately I had some links in my Inbox which was emptied during re-installation.

Can't open the new version
Just installed the new version from Testflight. Can't open it at all, crashes after few seconds.

Preview of attachments (#3402)
Preview of pdf-attachments won't work if the file names contain scandinavian letters (ä,ö):

PDF viewer error 1.png 

The same file after renaming works well:

pdf viewer - no error 1.png 

I'll attach the actual pdf-file if you want to try it.

Importing large v8 brain fails.
How to find too long attachment names:
Report:  Thoughts: By Attachments - Type: Paths to Trim
Better quickview for office docs (#3727, #2480 and #2800)
Preview of Word docs is not working for me either (only pdf). (Latest MacOS and Microsoft Office for Mac 2011).

Sync failed: Unknown Error

To redo the import:
  • Close TB8 and open the _brain folder for your brain.
  • Rename the brain_cdbb folder to brain_cdbb_old
  • Restart TB8 and open your brain.
  • TB8 will reconstruct the folder that was just renamed. Wait for it to finish.
  • Close TB8.
  • Open TB9 and delete the copy you previously imported.
  • Import again.
  • Sync again.
If that doesn't work, please send us a copy of your brain. Thanks.


Did you receive my brainzip-file? Hightail.com service uploaded the whole 1.9 Gb file, but it didn't send me e-mail for confirmation. I tried also to  run version 8 Utility Options (Check for Modified Attachments, Remove Redundant Notes, Repair Orphaned Attachments, Rebuild Database, Rebuild search index) to my version 8 brain and to re-import it to version 9.0.123 but the sync problem still exists.

Hi

Can't sync my Brain: v 9.0.121.0

With one of my Brain the sync is succesful but one Brain (Thoughts 4504; Links 5758; Notes 971) gives error codes:

 
Code:

Uploading: 99% transferred...

Waiting for remote acknowledgement

Sync failed: Unexpected error in MergeSyncs 

or

Sync failed: Unknown Error


Checked Brain integrity: no issues. The same also for new GUID. I imported the Brains from version 8.

Any suggestions to proceed?

Markku
