Adding links as new thoughts without the mouse?
Do you mean you have copied a url and want to paste as a new thought? Or paste into the selected thought?
Help on structure...
Great advice guys! Appreciate the time. I am definitely looking for more of this practical tips. If you have other organizational/structure tips, let me know.

Quote: After having been on a TB hiatus I can say upon rediscovering my joy for TB that the power lays in its free associations, the discovery of connections.

This describes me exactly, have been away for several years. Of course I know wish that I had kept it up all these years but such is life!

Am watching some of Jerry's videos... he does not seem to use the comma approach. He has Types and he has music, but his union thought is Types of Music spelled out. I assume it is a preference to use or not use the comma.

Thanks, very much appreciate your examples. I am doing similar. So for that book then, is it linked up to "Books" and also "Books I Read" and "Books I Read, 2018" and potentially "Books About Microsoft" and "Non-Fiction Books" ?

Any tips on how you do Timeline? So you have a year 2018, how do you decide what things to link to a Year or do you have sort of standard categories (nodes?) that you put under each year?

For example I have Places I have worked and Places I have Lived, and I want to know the range of years, but I am not sure that i will link them to Year thoughts.

Looking for some advice on how to structure many to many relationships. I know broadly the answer to everything is "there are lots of ways to do it" but looking for specifics on how you did something similar.

1. I have groupings of things (books, musicians, movies, etc.) where I may want a full broad collection and then I want Books I Like (or Favorite Books). From a parent thought of Favorites I want books, musicians, movies, etc. as the next level down. So do I create one parent of Books and one partent of Favorite Books? That seems redundant and maybe I am missing a better approach

2. Biographical events. I have created a Thought for every Year (somewhat inspired by Jerry's brain). I can see connecting world events to a year, but then I also want a smaller collection of MY events for a year. Do I create two different 2018s one for the general and one for me?

I hope these examples make sense, but broadly I am talking about when things fall in to multiple hierarchies.

all suggestions welcome!

I'm happy to report that you shouldn't need to use it much longer as we will begin signups for TheBrain 9 iOS App very soon. More details to come, but it is a significant step up from the current version of the iOS app.

Happy to test the iOS 9 App !!   [wink]

Frequent crashes when creating new thoughts and editing existing (#3072 and #3121)
I've had a bunch of these too (sent in a couple logs). Scenario - create one Thought, then creating a child thought... as entering the child though, in the background the plex re-draws and the first Thought disappears (poof!). If you continue with the child thought, it crashes. If you notice and escape out, it does not crash but the other thought is deleted. Sometimes I think a pre-existing thought gets deleted too -- I notice this because I am left with a lot of Orphans.

I just switched off of Alpha, so maybe won't have so many crashes.

I am getting back into the Brain after a long hiatus. Looking forward to things to come with v9.
