Colors in text box
Hi... I'm interested in using dark backgrounds in the text box. I've set this up using Preferences. One unwanted outcome is that with a dark background I cannot see bullets or number prefixes. My picture example is below. For example I've used red text on a blue background. I've lightened the background enough to see the numbered list prefix, but it appears in black.... not what I want. Any idea how to change this? Thanks...

searching and linking os x contacts using TB8 and Yosemite
Hi Patrick et al; 

Still stuck on this issue; very frustrating as I want to use TheBrain for contacts related to topics I'm keeping in TheBrain. Any ideas on my inability to search/ find Contacts in TheBrain that I can find in Spotlight? 

OS X 10.10.1
TheBrain 8.0.1.4

Thanks...

Let me know if I'm out of date!

Thanks...

I read that one feature of TB for Mac was to search for contacts in Addressbook then be able to add them as thoughts. This would be a great feature as other URL-based contact details and personal notes on contacts could all be added. 

Unfortunately in testing this feature it doesn't seem to work; Spotlight can find my contact but PB search or extended search cannot find it. Has something changed in versions, either OS X or PB? OS X now uses Contacts.app rather than Addressbook... 

Thanks for any insight;

Chaning Vertical Thought Separation in Normal Mode
I'd like to change the vertical thought separation in normal mode. The vertical separation is set up well for many thoughts on the screen. Conversely, if I want to lower the number of thoughts but make it more presentable (say to an audience) I'd like to increase the vertical separation. 
I realise in expanded view I can manually move thougths around, but I don't want to have to create a static view. I simply want to use normal view, where I can move up and down dynamically as I wish, but to make that normal view be clear and presentable by increasing vertical separation between child thoughts. 

Thanks if you can help...
