thoguht notes not scrolling properly
I've had this problem also...

Same problem here...

Indexing/Java Woes
I am still having trouble with search and indexing. The last full index took 6 days! After closing PB and reopening (after indexing finished) I again got the message that an index lock was removed - would you like to rebuild... I answered yes and the process restarted; whew... My Brain Database is fairly large (33,000+ thoughts & 130,000 links) with many fairly large notes (14,000+) and local attachments (209) (primarily pdf files).

Is there any way I could only periodically choose to allow reindexing and continue to be able to search using the last index? Would save me a lot of grief.

See previous thread...

Indexing Message Text - See Attached file...

Also, when indexing I still periodically get the Java error mentioned in the referenced thread.

Thanks for the reply.

I did let the index completely finish the first time before closing. You are right, the message probably did say locked instead of dropped... So each time PB is closed and reopened the index will be locked, checked, and updated? Also, will it hurt to always run PB in admin. mode since mine is a single user machine?

As far as I know PB was the only Java app running and I got another error this AM; a system error message repeatedly says Java has stopped working - details follow:

"Java has stopped working..."

I followed your instructions. Index rebuilt in 30 hours! Search worked fine afterward. I closed PB; reopened normally (not as admin). A message popped up saying that the index was DROPPED - do you want to rebuild to test?... (not exact wording). Answered yes and the indexing restarted; I closed  PB and reopened. Search no longer works and no index is rebuilding. Go figure.

I'm stumped.

It seems to be working for me; the index is currently rebuilding... Will not know for sure until I test with a search. Will report back later.

Entering a new thought name when the word is not in the spellchecker database causes a significant delay that impairs productivity. Is there any way to stop the spell check while entering thought names? I am not referring to the notes editor.

Search other than quick search doesn't work for me. Have rebuilt search index and database to no avail. Have installed indexing version and pro version. Neither work. I am getting no error messages. When I choose to rebuild the index there is a message saying  "the index seems to be missing some elements."

When an existing thought is found, the options are now:
Link to existing
Create new
Always link to existing
Always create new

This new feature isn't working for me...

Any Hope Of Fixing My "Mangled" Notes?
Great news; thanks, Harlan.
Any Hope Of Fixing My "Mangled" Notes?
I want to upgrade to version 5 but have some concerns. See this thread for details regarding problem with the Notes editor (see the .zip file attachment for example of the problem). I have thousands of notes - both converted from v3 rtf format AND new notes pasted via clipboard in HTML format - that are messed up because of spacing issues before punctuation marks and font color changes. If there was some way to use Regex to correct the errors, I could write a script... Is there any hope of getting the HTML formatted pasting issues fixed?

Another usability problem is the inability to add multiple thought links (semi-colon separated names) without creating duplicate thoughts. Could a option switch be added to prompt for adding duplicates verses linking to existing thought? Notes Font Display Is "Fuzzy"
So how do I fix it? I'm clueless...

Just tried new beta and had to revert to v  The display of note fonts is markedly worse under new version.  My fonts tried are Arial & Times New Roman (12 & 14 pt).  Have no idea why this happens. Am running Win Vista 32...
Issue - Large DBs Will Not Load

2 logs attached; one after failure to load, the other after PB killed and reloaded. If I close PB after a successful load and close BEFORE creating any new thoughts/links it loads OK, otherwise  it hangs.
