OS X and accessibility apps
I use a utility called Magnet to do some window management tasks, like resizing. I believe the way it's able to do this is through the Accessibility features of the OS. TheBrain (at least up to 9.0.215) doesn't respond to Magnet commands, which leads me to believe it doesn't play well with the accessibility features of OS X in general.

The app has a FAQ entry:
Quote:

Why is my window not resizing?

Magnet can handle all standard resizable windows in OS X for you. Magnet can not do anything with non-standard windows used by some developers. Fortunately, such windows are quite rare. Adobe Creative Suite & Creative Cloud apps older than 2017 version is not supported exactly for this reason.



Which isn't technical at all, but, seems to account for the behaviour.

Just thought I'd share that.

What are options for inline images or LaTeX-like formulas in notes? (#4114)
Hi Sean,

Here is what I'm seeing:
Screen Shot 2017-08-17 at 10.43.53 AM.png 
As you can see from the comments in the screenshot, there seems to be some difference between pasting an image from the clipboard, and pasting a file that is an image from the clipboard.

The screenshot I'm taking on OS X with Shift+Control+Cmd+4.


I looked at TheBrain log, and there might be some interesting output there:

Energy consumption on Mac is extremely high (3219)
Hi @zenrain, just the one process. Checked from the OS X's 'Monitor' as well as the command line.

I'm surprised you haven't run across this, so I'm wondering what's different between our setups.

  • I see you're running macOS 10.12. I'm still on 10.11.
  • Running TheBrain 9.0.209, although I've experienced this on previous versions as well.
  • Only the integrated GPU (Intel Iris Pro)
  • The brains I've been working with are very tiny (which I would expect to cause less CPU use)
  • Any other ideas?

Edit -
Thinking some, I'm running the trial version. Looking at your post count, I imagine you have the paid version.

Came here looking for this. When I'm using TheBrain my laptop fan will come on after a couple of minutes (MacBook Pro).
FreeMind import missing notes
Haven't heard anything conclusively, but it looks like the problem is in how XMind is exporting to FreeMind. Loading the exported file into FreeMind (FreePlane for me), saving it, then importing into TheBrain brings over the notes as expected.
What are options for inline images or LaTeX-like formulas in notes? (#4114)
In Evernote I'll often take screenshots of LaTeX formulas I type, and paste them in to the sentences of my notes. Not ideal, but it seems to be the only way to get formulas into my notes with Evernote.

Playing with TheBrain 9, it doesn't look like I can either paste images inline with my notes, or insert formulas directly. Does that sound accurate?

It appears I could attach images if I was a Pro user, but would there be any way to show where in my note the attached images belong?


Thanks!
FreeMind import missing notes
Hi,

I have a number of mind maps in XMind and I'm trying to import those mind maps into TheBrain. To do so, I export to the FreeMind file format, then import into TheBrain. The problem is that the notes that accompany nodes in my mind maps don't make it.

Using grep, I can see that the FreeMind file does contain the notes, so it looks like it's TheBrain that isn't doing anything with that information.

Are the notes that accompany nodes in FreeMind files expected to make it into TheBrain, or is this not an implemented feature? Any other suggestions on getting XMind mind maps into TheBrain?


Thanks!
Chris
