Hello David,

Thanks for your suggestion, user suggestions are very useful to us. We have definitely taken note of this and will consider it for future development. 

We do have a feature in place that may help with this issue in the mean time. As you click through different Thoughts, you should see a list of those thoughts begin to appear on the bottom of the Plex. You can easily click on one of those icons and it should take you straight to that thought.

When should a Thought really be a Note, and vice versa
Hello Ward,

Thanks for posting your question on the forums, it's a great question to consider before starting a new Brain. Like you said, it really does depend on how you think and what you are using TheBrain for. Personally, I like to think in an outline format (titles with subcategories that have bullet points) so I tend to make Thoughts short and bullet point details within notes. However, I have spoken with plenty of users who have preferred very long Thought names. They typically use TheBrain for projects involving research, writing and file management.

To get technical, I would suggest trying to stay on the shorter side of Thought names to ensure that the file path each thought creates does not get too long. The Notes section allows you to place a lot of information in there and I would take advantage of that. You can always make a long title in the Notes area.

Hello Cerebrum,

This is a great suggestion. I will add this idea to our future features list and notify our engineers. Just to add to it, there is also the 'Mind Map' option. This may not be exactly what you are looking for but it does offer another visual display of thoughts.

Quote: I don’t know about you, but my phone feels like an extension of my brain. I can’t commit to an appointment without checking my calendar. There are to-do lists and voice memos to make sure I don’t lose an idea. And, of course, there’s Google to instantaneously answer any question.

Hello Zenrain,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. A robust and responsive application is very important to us and I will note this for our engineers to take a look. Please note that TheBrain 9 is still in beta so that there will be expected issues to fix. Features such as the mobile and web platforms may still be limited relative to the desktop application. We are working to make sure these issues are addressed as soon as possible.

Dragging a link from the internal browser to the Plex (4258)
Hello Cerebrum,

Thank you for your suggestion, I think it is a great idea. I have added it to our future features list for our engineers to check out.

As a work around, you should be able to navigate to the specific link in the internal browser, select the icon and drag that to create a new thought to the specific link.
