Repeated sync-error popups
Build 9.0.175.0 MacOS 10.12.4

I keep getting sync error popups asking me if I want to send a report.

I do want to be notified that synchronisation isn't working right but not modally!

And, while I am glad you default toward choice, I'm happy to give you permission to get the reports on an ongoing basis.

Best,

Matt

Am I right in understanding that TB v9 is developed using Xamarin?

New-line isn't always a new paragraph

For me, that's too much faff.


@Cerebrum old chap you're just too obsessed with faff you know... shift-enter is fine for me thanks @zenrain

Except in the Brain notes editor, where it is.

Is this some setting I am missing?

If not then clearly y'all are not writing a lot of poetry in your notes...

Which are my most densely connected thoughts? (3372)
As my Brain file becomes denser and more connected I want to be sure I can make best use of it and what it can tell me about my world.

I had my first experience, since I picked Brain up again in January of adding a thought for a person and finding they were already in and connected to something else. A mini a-ha and a smile.

I'm going to keep putting this information in but I am looking to you guys to offer me more and better ways to get it out again!

Bug creating a new orphan thought (#3737)
Thanks for the note that renaming uses different rules, that's helpful to know.

Obviously I'd like a protocol (like "") for suppressing this behaviour because I may be copy & pasting and anything in quotes seems likely to me to be intended to be what it is.

It also avoids what I went through in trying to find & forget all the orphaned "bits of thoughts" that I accidentally created this way.

Which are my most densely connected thoughts?

What is the shortest path between them?

How can I visualise whether that tells me anything interesting?

Thanks @zenrain that's useful.

Though I would add the rider that where these symbols occur within "" I think they should be treated as part of the thought name.

@cerebrum fair question.

In general I see no sensible way to shorten a quotation and, in any case, the quote is the thought ... i want to see the thought and not have to faff with notes.

Editing thought title font is too small (#3734 and #3735)
Trying to edit a long thought title:

I would rather have a multi-line editor than try and shrink the font until it all fits on one line.

Okay I am totally confused as I have *also* found the complete quote as a thought.

What are the rules for creating thoughts?

Okay... no... I see what's happened.

It seems Brain has a specific meaning for ";" in a thought as it has taken that quote and created a whole bunch of thoughts.

Hrmm... I don't think I want this behaviour when something is inside "". When something is quoted I think you are usually referring to a body of speech.

I pasted:

“Without integrity, motivation is dangerous; without motivation, capacity is impotent; without capacity, understanding is limited; without understanding, knowledge is meaningless; without knowledge, experience is blind. Experience is easy to provide and quickly put to good use by people with all the other qualities.”

into the search box and hit the create orphan button. The thought I got was:

without knowledge, experience is blind. Experience is easy to provide and quickly put to good use by people with all the other qualities.”

I thought this might be related to the maximum thought length issue but was surprised that, when I tried to create the thought in the Plex I was able to create it with the full quote so it appears to be something related to that specific method of creating the thought.

Advanced search
Looking at the v8 user guide there are a lot of search functions that don't seem to work in v9 (boolean logic, etc). Are these are planned but not yet implemented?

m/
Make # work in search (#3731)
It's so common to think "#tag" these days. I think it would make sense if "#friend" in the search box searched for all thoughts tagged "Friend".

Maybe pick another sigil for type.
