Feature Request: PDF Annotation / Bookmarking
Hello,

I like to request support for PDF Annotations / Bookmarking while viewing the PDF file.

This is useful when reading a book and taking down notes.

One idea is the annotations could be quickly inserted on the Notes with page links/citations

The additional metadata from the annotations and bookmarks will be saved in the location of the file.

When you open the PDF in the Brain's Viewer, the Brain would check if there are annotations/ bookmarks, if there is an annotation/ bookmark available, the Brain would load it.
Feature Request: Support for Code Blocks
Hello,

I like to request support for Code Blocks in the Notes similar to Github.

This would be useful for people who needs to write/reference codes

Timeline and Events (#3481, #3611, #3618, #3636)
@Matt

Here's some idea,

TheBrain needs to have the following for the multi-timeline

  1. TheBrain should have a Time attribute/properties
  2. TheBrain should be able to link the connection of time the same way Thoughts can link to other Thoughts

The mock-up has 4 parts

  1. Timeline Tab
  2. Timeline View
  3. Plex with Timeline Overlay
  4. Report Timeline

  1. Timeline Tab

The Timeline Tab is the Time attribute of a Thought, The property is per Thought.

The design is similar to the old calendar with different views

Some idea http://www.essentialpim.com/images/calendar1.png

In the Timeline Tab, the user can input schedules,events, activities, historical time, birthdays, any time related data.

Example:
Project Thought → Sub-Project Thought
The user can create deadlines and schedule of the Project Thought, if the user wants to delegate it to another person, the user can create a sub-project Thought and set schedule to track progress.

The Sub-Project Thought which is linked to the Project Thought, will be related and it will automatically be linked in time.

For Historical and Birthdays, the user can just set a Thought and add a Time property to it.

If its possible, the Time property can have a counter which is useful for Birthday or History. The counter would just get the difference between the current date and the set Time property of the Thought, so you will know the age of the celebrant.


  1. Timeline View

The Timeline View is the same as the current Timeline View design,

It can show the current Thought only, selected Thoughts, and a summary of all Thoughts currently on the plex

Example;

The user want to compare the time for PLEX 0 and PLEX 1, the user will just select PLEX 0 and PLEX 1 and it will only show these Timeline.


  1. Plex with Timeline Overlay

The Plex with Timeline Overly can be use see all the timeline of all the Thoughts currently on the Plex.

It can be filtered to show all, show dates, show months, show year

Depending on the filtered event, the circles are re-draw

Example: Time Filter is Year
The big circles are the Years, the small circles are the Months

The use can control and filter the Plex on the Timeline View.

If the user filter the event to 2016 year and month of january, all the Thought currently on the Plex will show only the event on that month and year.

The idea is similar to data visualization
http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2009/06/50-great-examples-of-data-visualization/

The Plex with Timeline Overlay is only to a certain dimension similar to the Timeline View above because it can cause data overload for the user


  1. Report support for Multi-Timeline

After some thought, the Multi-timeline is better suited in the Report

In the Report, the user you can create a report related to all the timeline available in opened Brain,

Example Find all Thought with Birthdays, this can depend if the user add tags to Birthday, or Thought with name Birthdays, or linked to a Thought Birthday.

The report will show the Thought with Birthdays and show the links between the Thoughts.

Example the Result of the reports shows the Family A and Family B birthdays.
The Brain will create a link to all the Family A members that are connected to Family A, same with Family B members

The report shows the user what is connected based on their Thought linking.

The user can quickly locate the Thought by just clicking on the report.

A summary report of all the Thought with Time data in a picture file would be very nice to see.

+1 to Moltaire multi-timeline request![thumb][thumb]

@Matt, 
Have you guys considered using the plex to show the multi-timeline if its possible?
The current timeline will be used for 1 to 3 dimensions, while the plex will be used for 1 to infinity.
[Feature Request] Move/Copy Internal Attachment to another Brain
The feature request is similar to how you would use "Move File out of the Brain" an internal attachment then select the destination where you save the file to an external location.

The process would be similar but instead of choosing an external location, the user would choose a Brain.

Example.
We have 2 Opened Brains
Brain A
Brain B

Brain A (Has 1 Thought and 2 attachments)
  Thought - "Move Attachment Out"
      Attachment - "123.doc"
      Attachment - "456.doc"

Brain B (has 2 Thoughts)
  Thought - "123 doc here"
  Thought - "456 doc here"


In order for the user to move out the 2 attachments of Brain A, the user needs to set the destination Thought where he/she would like to put it.
From the example above, if the user would like to move out attachment 456.doc of Brain A to the Thought "456 doc here" of Brain B 

1. The user would first focus Brain B's "456 doc here" Thought
2. The user would go back to Brain A and select Attachment "456.doc"
3. The user right click on the selected attachment, choose "Move File out to Another Brain"
4. TheBrain would then transfer it to the "456 doc here" Thought


The idea has limit of 2 Brains, I dont know how to do it if there are multiple Brains open, maybe the manual way would be an alternative.

[Feature Request] Create a Thought Link from Internal Attachment (#3657)
Correct Matt![thumb]

A more automated process is much better![comp]
[Bug Report] Imported Local Thought URL/ Local Web Link not working (#3649 and #3650)
Matt,

Thanks for checking the bugs[smile] 

You're right regarding bug #2, the bug in #2 is related to bug #1 where the imported Thought have new GUID. 

I think it's because I'm testing TheBrain in local data mode, maybe you're signed-in that's why you are getting the "preview.webbrain.com" name for the Thought, it should have copied Thought name not replaced by "preview.webbrain.com"

Can you test local data mode to see if it shows the word "local"? 
[Feature Request] Move/Copy Internal Attachment to another Brain
Hi!

This is to enhance the usage of multiple brain /Tab interface.

The feature request is to be able to transfer an internal attachment to another Brain.

This is useful when you want a copy of the file attachment to another Brain, or want to archive it on another Brain.
