Many thanks - this sorts things out.
We seem to be at cross-purposes. I am asking if Unicode or other means of producing accented characters could be put on the wish list if there is one. This is because on enquiry I have been told that Unicode is not provided in TheBrain 8. I don't know about TheBrain 9 - I do not see Unicode mentioned. Now you show me the result of entering text in non-English languages. Is this in TheBrain 8 or 9? How is it done? As for the specific example you ask for, nothing is going wrong. I just do not know how to enter non-English text, perticularly accented characters. I am using TheBrain 8 on Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit.
I am not referring to emojis. See place names on a map of Eastern Europe. Some of them will have accented characters - O umlaut or whatever. These are what I am referring to. But I would rather see ability to enter any Unicode character that is part of text in any language. As far as I know, modern word processors and text editors have this facility, including the ability to enter text reading right to left as in Hebrew.
If there is a wish list I would like to add this. I am preparing a Brain with names of people and places in Eastern Europe and other parts of the world where English is not the mother tongue. It would be good to be able to insert accented characters where text is accepted. Unicode is the standard way as far as I know, or else HTML codes or other ways used by word processors. I am rather surprised that such a facility is not available in software being developed in this era of globalisation.
thought spacing in all views
Thanks, but I do not see a sliding bar for Thought spacing in the Look and Feel tab. The only sliding bar is for animation speed. This is Brain Pro Edition v.
thought spacing in all views
Is it possible to increase the spacing between thoughts when they are arranged in a column in the plex? In Windows 7 they are so close together it is difficult to see which gates belong to which thoughts.
Order of thoughts (#3497)
Newest to oldest is rather surprising. It might be good to have the option to choose newest to oldest or oldest to newest. I understand that there will be more ordering facilities in Version 9.
Uninstalling TheBrain 9
I downloaded TheBrain 9 and after a few days installed it. When I tried to run it it turned out to be expired. So I uninstalled it using Revo Uninstall. After this I found that Brain 8 was absent so I installed it again. Clearly TheBrain 8 and TheBrain 9 beta are not altogether independent of each other.

While installing TheBrain 9 beta I noticed that Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.2 was installed [there seems to be a lot of it]. I was rather surprised at this since I thought version 9 was native code.
Order of thoughts (#3497)
I notice that when I change the order of thoughts via Options: Arrange Thoughts by: Creation Date, the thoughts appear in *reverse* order of creation date. Can this be changed?
