No "Paste" in intern browser anymore? (#4086)
Just updated to version .206 and now ctrl C for copy in the internal browser is now working fine



windows 10 brain v.206
No "Paste" in intern browser anymore? (#4086)
Should copy (Ctr C) also work? I have tried to do this several times but without sucess. Have to open web page in normal browser to do this.
PDF Preview error (#3967)
I get this error too

v.202 Windows 10
Feature request - Search results - display type and tags in the hover box (#4025)
I have often used the same "Title" for different thoughts, differentiating them in the Brain by using Types and Tags. 
So when I use the Search box for "Report" (for example) all the "Report" thoughts are returned (as would be expected), however, it is sometimes difficult to find the one I want quickly (even when I colour coded my thought types), especially for older thoughts which I have not remembered their context (after all this is one of the reasons why I am using the software).  I have noticed when you hover over the returned value the thought name is displayed, would it be possible to also display the thought type and tags (if any).  For me this would make using the Brain more intuative and speedy. There maybe those who would not find this feature useful, so perhaps a switch in preferences would be in order too.
I know I can set up a report that will do this, but the Search box is more convenient.

I am appreciating all the work that you are putting into the new version, I now use it in preference to V8.

Notes not being searched (#3990)
Working fine for me now.
Version 9 - Task Bar Icon Wrong (#3994)
For me this happens every time when I install a new release of v9.  I fix it by unpinning the blank Icon and then creating a new one.

v192 Windows 10
Notes not being searched (#3990)
Hi Patrick

I thought I would give this a go, as I seem to remember having the same issue.

In your post above for the search, it shows as "Notes and Attachments" - I do not see this, only the "Thought and Link Names and Labels"
Is there a way to configure what is being searched? - I could not see this anywhere.


I am using the latest build on Alpha (192.0)
On Windows 10
Disappearing Notes | (#2780, #2924, #2925, #2945, #3015)
The notes have definitely gone - there is an audit record in the history too, indicating a note change.  But this change was not by me.  

I am suspicious of the "Update content on hover" and think that this might be the issue, as on my laptop, there is often a significant lag with this feature.  

I did not realise you could turn it off, I have done now and I will monitor how things go. (sadly as it is a useful feature).
Disappearing Notes | (#2780, #2924, #2925, #2945, #3015)
I am using build (115) with Windows 10

I have noticed several thoughts within the Brain 9 that have lost their notes completely.  
Not sure whether an output file will be useful to you as this seems random and does not come after any (noticeable) event.  Any attachments remain in place.

It is a bit worrying though, I do not feel confident of the Notes feature in the new version at the moment.  Fortunately this is on a relatively new Brain, with only around 1000 thoughts, however, there are at least 4 of these thoughts where the notes have gone.  There does seem to be an entry of change of note in the thought history, however, this change has not been made by me.

Update.. This has just got worse with notes swapping thoughts - more notes disappearing, and eventually brain crashing.
Output file attached.

Use the first image attachment on a thought as its icon | (#2831)
Does this help?

Use the first image attachment on a thought as its icon | (#2831)
Always found this frustrating, so happy with this feature.  Although, the only happens when attachments are changed, took some time to work out.

Just one observation.  I have experienced the occasional crash of tb9 when doing this (updating imported thoughts with multiple attachments to display image icon), but this is very random and I cannot see any pattern in the crashing.
Notes: Set Date Format | (#2906)
I also have specific format requirements for date stamp.
Rather than using the Brain for this I am using a Text Expander (Phase Express) which allows me to, (with a few specific key strokes), add the date format/font/colour that I want.  
I am using Windows, but I know that there are applications that would allow you to apply this on a Mac
Unable to connect to Sync Webbrain with Brain 8
The Brain8 Software is asking for user name and password to sync brain with online version:

Failed to connect to TheBrain Cloud Services Server
This could be caused by a problem with your network connection or the server at https://webbrain.com.

I do not seem to be having network issues with other applications, so I am assuming it is a problem with the Server.

I can connect to the server via a web browser - however, I am getting a security certificate warning.

The security certificate presented by this website has expired or is not yet valid...

But if I ignore this, I can update the server version of my brains..(although they do not sync with my desktop versions)
Modifying Font type and Styles in the Notes field.
I have revisited the notes and the new Style options.
My main concern here was maintaining a look and feel for notes created in Brain 8 and imported and new notes going forward in Brain 9.  However after messing around with a test Brain I have a work around where I can use a series of thoughts with template notes that I can copy and paste into new thoughts.  On the whole this works OK, if a little long winded.

I am still of the opinion that it would be better to have the capability of creating/modifying styles at a user level. And the ability to choose a selection of Font Family and Font Sizes.

Probably the biggest issue for me is the date stamp.  I use this small with a light colour and usually as just the date.  So some control over this would be nice.  In Brain 9 the date stamp is even longer (full spelling of the Month);  I stamp all my notes and note updates, however, as things are I will be copying and pasting the date stamp and modifying it to reflect the date.  The built in stamp does not meet my requirements, so I will not use it.

A couple more observations re Notes field:
  1. When importing from Brain 8 to Brain 9 - Notes with an indent, lose that indent on the transfer.  Bullet notes seem to carry across fine.
  2. In Brain 9 changing the style seems to be broken in some cases. Highlighting a paragraph and applying one of the preset styles changes the style of all of the notes other than the highlighted paragraph to the selected style.  Not what I would expect. update.. I cannot always replicate this..

Anyway I have included an example Brain8 Zip in which I have created some of the Note styles that I use.  This will give an  indication of how my main brains notes will change when upgrading to Brain9.
