One Event, two or more Thoughts (#4333)
I think that sometimes it could be useful to link an Event to more than one Thought. I know that events are part of a Thought and not vice versa. However, I think that sometimes events could have more than one parent, as it happens with Thoughts.

Thank you,

Improve Repeating Events
When adding repetition to an Event (from the Timeline area), some options (like when an Event ends) are inaccessible (Windows 8.1) because they are behind the windows Task Bar. I am sending you a picture.

Thank you,

Improve Repeating Events

Great job Harlan, "Repeating Events" is working well.

I have an observation: repetitions are display on the timeline but not in the content window (events tab). I know that it has its benefits and its downside: for instance, if you created an event on February and you would set weekly repetitions for six months or twelve, you would be able to see the event –in the content window— at the beginning of the year but as time goes by it is probably that in May or June that event would not be visible in the content windows unless you scroll down to see early events in the content window).

However, if you displayed repetitions on the timeline and content windows, you would be always able to see an event that repeats itself over the months even if it was created long time ago.

I think this feature (display repetition on content windows) should be optional, even though I think it would be very useful.

Thank you,

Gerardo

Feature Request: Search engine improvement (#4244)
Hi Harlan,

Thank you for adding recurrent events feature. I will try it in the next days. For me, Thebrain is like an OS and Windows only a door that let me in (OK, it is not a rigorous technical opinion...).

Speaking about searching, in TheBrain 8.0 it is possible to search partial words using % symbol. Is that not possible to implement in Thebrain 9.0? Does Thebrain 8.0 use a large index?

Thank you!

Feature Request: Add attachments to Events
I think it could be useful if Events were capable of being linked to attachments. Maybe it would also be useful if one could add attachments to Events.

Feature request: on hover mode navigation (#4201)
Thank you Louis.

For instance, I think on hover navegation mode would be useful when accessing Pins (as it happens now with content window).

Feature request: on hover mode navigation (#4201)

It is just an idea. I know that it could be a chaotic navigation but at the same time, it could be a very smooth navigation without the necessity of making any click, only hovering (specially if you use a touch mouse). Of course, this mode would be optional.

The idea would be to enable the navigation by moving the mouse and stop by one second (that would replace the click) and then continue the navigation.

Thank you,

Gerardo

Thanks for posting.  I'll document your requests.  

Not sure if the "complete" option will be implemented.  This could be easily done in the Event or Thought Notes - How do you envision this feature to look/function?

Hi Matt,

I remember when you asked me (about event "complete" function) "How do you envision this feature to look/function?"

Well, I have the answer now: changing the color of the text that appears on the timeline.

In that scenario, when you mark an event as complete, it would appear in gray (or some other color or even strikethrough too) on the timeline. It is just an idea.

This way you could easily visualize in a glance what events are still ongoing or have not been completed (or have been ignored).

This is very useful when you have a lot of events on the timeline

Thank you,
Gerardo

Thank you for your work Matt. I really appreciate it.

Hi Matt,

At this moment, it is a little tedious to create that type of event simulation and, for that reason, I do not have done it yet even though I need to create a lot of events for a specific Thought. Let me explain.

This is the case: from now on, I have to take a medicine for the rest of the year (and more) every two weeks. If Thebrain had already implemented the "repeat event" command, I would have added 20 or more events —at one stroke— to the existing thought "Personal Health". Currently, that Thought has already many events, most of them old events and some of them future events. However, if I added those 20 recurrent events to the existing "Personal Health", I would be unable to see "today events" for "Personal Health" unless I manually scroll down to "today" every time I click on "Personal Health" Thought (that would be a little annoying).

Note: I am always refering to the right panel, not to the timeline at the bottom of TheBrain. I think that this right panel where you can see the list of events for a particular Thought is a kind of "vertical timeline" for every Thought. For that 'vertical timeline', it would be useful to have a "scroll now" button and, even better yet,  that the default position were 'now' and not "the last future" event.

I do not know if I was able to explain myself without an image. I owe you a screenshot but I promise to send you one when the "repeat command" is implemented [wink]

Feature Request: rename pin command
Thank you Matt.

Hi Harlan,

Yes, of course I have noticed the new feature (searching inside of events) and that is great, thank you!

I agree with you about the timeline and thoughts when you click. However, I was referring to a different situation.

The problem is not the timeline (bottom panel) but the right panel where you can visualize the event list of a particular thought. If you add 30 long-time events (two per month, for instance) that panel will show you those events first and you will have to "manually" 'scroll now' to see "present events". This scenario will be likely when you implement "repeat events" function.

I recall when I ask you to invert the order and show the new events first and not the old one. But now I see that a list of lot of new future events is like having a lot of old events: that prevent you from seeing "present events" in the first place. Sorry if my explanation is a little complicated.

Thank you,

Gerardo

EVENTS: to add "scroll now" command

Recently I had to add many long-term events (many month ahead) to one particular thought. Then, short-term events went down on the list and I was not able to see them any more unless I scrolled down.

That situation made me think about the following question.

When the "repeat command" is implemented in the near future, I think it will be necessary to implement another command too: "scroll now", as it happens with the timeline; in addition, it would be useful that when you click on a thought with many long-term and short-term events, automatically it actives that command (scroll now) and you can see the current events in the first place rather than a large list of long-term events relevant only in the future.

Thank you,

Gerardo

Feature Request: rename pin command
It is not bad idea as a workaround. Thank you.

However, I would still ask for that new feature to be add in the near future.

Thank you,
Gerardo
Feature Request: rename pin command
I think it could be useful a rename pin command when a given Thought is too long. That way pin could work like shortcuts works in Windows. Currently if you change pin name that modifies the thoughts name too.

Thank you,
Gerardo
