Can I rename a thought?
Hi Timothy,

To rename a Thought on Android, tap on the Thought to make it active, then tap again to show its properties. Although there is no obvious box or edit button, you can then tap on the Thought name and a cursor will appear. Then edit the name and save.

Cheers, Sean
Always Link to Existing Thought (#3363)
Christian,

Thanks for checking up on this issue, and sorry it has not yet been fixed. Unfortunately we still do not have an ETA for this fix, but I went ahead and updated the ticket to reflect that our users are still running into this issue.

Cheers, Sean

Thank you Ethan for the update. The issue has been solved in the newest version which you can download on the alpha update channel (Preferences > System > Updates > Alpha, then Check for Update from TheBrain/Help menu)

One Event, two or more Thoughts (#4333)
Cerebrum,

Having ungrouped Tags to define dates could easily get out of hand. My response was an idea that would make Tags reusable so there aren't a bunch of single use Tags cluttering up the Tag menu. For my personal Brain the reusability outweighs the clunkiness of having ungrouped Tags. Of course this method would not work very well with a lot of dated Thoughts, or like you mentioned accidentally adding more than one Tag. Where it does work is with a few (about 5-20) dated Thoughts per month.

Helen,

The way I was thinking would be when you have a lot of Thoughts that you want to have the same date you could use a Tag for just that date (2017_10_09).

Another way would be to do a combination of Tags. Have a tag for each month and a separate Tag for each day. This way each Tag is reusable, and not just taking up space. Ex: I have 2 test Thoughts: "Anything" and "Nothing". Anything has the Tags 9 and November, Nothing has 9 and October. If I search for 9 and click on the search result, both Thoughts are linked to 9. Hovering over them shows me their month Tags and I can easily distinguish dates. On the other hand, if I had a lot of October dates and searched for October, I could easily tell which Thoughts had which date by hovering over them to see the numbered Tag I assigned.

Hi Helen,

Instead of date-Thoughts, you can use Thought Types or Tags with dates to identify specific Thoughts. These come up under searches, and you would not need to add unnecessary links or extraneous Thoughts to your plex.

TheBrain 9 Server Is Temporarily Down
Thank you both for the log files. We are investigating the issue with syncing. Unfortunately, the issue being intermittent makes it harder to track down, but we are working on it.

Cheers, Sean

Edit: We have looked at the logs. All we know for certain is that there is an intermittent connection issue. It is not consistent enough to track down, but we will keep looking into it. Thank you for reporting this to us.
pasted Local thought URLs don't populate name (#3650)
Russ,

Thanks you for the additional information. The documented issue does take note that a local Thought URL becomes "Missing Thought or Link" when pasted into a different Brain.

I would like to correct my previous post: This is a documented BUG, not feature request. I've updated the bug with your comments.

Cheers, Sean
Paste Text Outline as Thoughts (#4341)
Daniel,

I am glad to inform you that the issue with not being able to paste text outlines was fixed today, and will be part of the next update. No timeline on when that will be released, but it should be within a week or two.

Cheers, Sean

Edit (10/06/17): The new version is now out on the alpha channel. Pasting text outlines as Thoughts should work again.

Hi Ethan,

Thank you for the screenshot. This is an issue we recently discovered ourselves. It has been documented and is being worked on. 
Does the number on the right side of the notification change for you? Going up and down, or only in one direction?

Cheers, Sean
Is there a way to automatically add links contained in a Wikipedia article ?
Hi Zqckfair,

There is not currently a way for TheBrain to read the links in a webpage and automatically make them child Thoughts. However, if you attach the URL to Tongue (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tongue) to a Thought, it will load within the content area and you can click each of the links from within your Brain. You can also drag any of the links in the Tongue article onto the plex to automatically make a child Thought with that link.

Cheers,
Sean
TheBrain 9 Server Is Temporarily Down
Ethan, Victoria,

When this happens again, could you send your Output.log file to support@thebrain.com so that we can try to determine the issue? To find the log, go to Help -> Open Log Directory, and send the file named "Output.log"

Cheers, Sean
how do I sync thebrain 9 with my ios devices?
Hi Chris,

Sync should be working properly. We have had a few scattered reports of sync failing, but for the most part it has been working. Just in case you missed it, we switched servers for v9. To sync your desktop version of TheBrain 9 with mobile devices you will need to be a member of the beta test group. Please follow the instructions here to sign up for TheBrain 9 iOS beta: http://forums.thebrain.com/post/8524967

Cheers, Sean
Paste Text Outline as Thoughts (#4341)
Daniel,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I was able to replicate the issue, and documented it for our engineering team to review. In the meantime, I found that version 9.0.217 works correctly when pasting a text outline as Thoughts. I've emailed you instructions to do roll back, if you wish to.

Cheers, Sean
Notes get stuck (are out of sync with thoughts when navigating/editing Brain) (#3984, #3910, #4285, #4325)
Hi Metta,
Thanks for the video showing this issue. I was able to replicate the notes getting stuck (not updating when navigating to/from Thoughts). This has been documented, actually multiple times, and our engineers are working on fixing it.

Cheers, Sean
