Notes: text selection via keyboard impossible
Well done! Thank you very much!

Christian
Notes: text selection via keyboard impossible
Harlan,

thank you for your answer. I did as you recommended, and went back to .245, where text selection in notes via keyboard is fine.

Notes: text selection via keyboard impossible
Please try:
Enter some text into notes, e.g. "sample text"
(Please note: cursor is behind last "t")
Try to select "text" by pressing Shift and Cursor-left.
(That's the moment to become desperate...)

Christian aka Kriggel23

P.S.: please also try Cursor-right, Cursor-up, and Cursor-down. In short words: that's sh..!!!

Cannot close thought details dialog with return
Please try:

Open thought details dialog (TDD) for a given thought.
(Please note: focus is on name field...)
Press Cmd-G to set/remove a tag
Select a given tag with cursor-down, and enter
(tag is either added or removed from thought; tag list is still open)
Press escape.
(tag list is closed, BUT: where's the focus?)
Press return.
(beep, TDD still open?!)

and ...

Open TDD for a given thought
Press Cmd-Y to set/clear the thought's type
Select a given type with cursor-down/-up, and enter
(type is either set or cleared, thought type list is closed)
Press return.
(beep, TDD still open?!)

Attached weblink with umlaut cannot be opened
Matt,

neither "Attachments as Tabs" nor "Attachments as a List" do change anything - in any case, the attached web link is NOT opened within Safari (the external browser). The animation (expanding circles) shows, that the "Open" function has been triggered, but nothing ever happens. I've tried all functions to open the - single - attached web link: double click on thought, thought context menu, "Open Attachment", double click on attachment, attachment context menu, "Open", single attachment menu, "Open", attachment "Open" icon.

What DOES change something is setting the preference "Embedded browser for web links". By default, it's deselected for me - I do not use the embedded browser at all. When set, the link works, want to say, the link is opened, but just and only within the embedded browser...

Kind regards,
Christian
Attached weblink with umlaut cannot be opened
Just tried again, from scratch: new brain, only one thought, with the link mentioned above linked. Open? nada. The difference I see: in my test, the umlaut is displayed, on your screenshot, I see "%C3%BC" instead ...

btw: I'm using macOS High Sierra, Version 10.13.3, with Safari...

Attached weblink with umlaut cannot be opened
I added a weblink as attachment to a thought.
But: this weblink to a Youtube query, or a video does not work if the link contains an umlaut, e.g. "ü".

Sample:

Rotate Splitter via Keyboard (#4589)
I'm on macOS, using the current version of TB, 9.0.239, and have assigned the keyboard shortcut Shift-Command-D to the "Rotate Splitter" command.

Attachments are shown as list.

When I open an existing brain, the layout is by default "horizontal". Left side: plex; right side top: Notes, bottom: attachments list.

With a click on that tiny little "Rotate Splitter" button somewhere near the lower border, I get my preferred layout, "vertical": Top: plex, bottom left: notes, right: attachments list. So far so good.

But you have to aim really good to hit that microscopical "Rotate Splitter" button. So, I've assigned a keyboard shortcut to the "Rotate Splitter" function.

BUT: when I use the shortcut instead of the button, the layout change is WRONG, when being used just after having opened a brain. I get: upper half: plex, lower half, top: notes, bottom: attachments list.

Small detail: when I used the button to rotate to "vertical", and than use the shortcut to rotate back to "horizontal", the layout is wrong, too: left half: plex, right half: left: notes, right: attachments list.

Issues on Paste and Match Format in Notes
Please try on Mac OS:
Open a new text in TextEdit
Enter: a tab, a space, a quotation mark ("), a lower-sign, the word "Test" (without quotation marks), a greater-sign, and another quotation mark. You now should see something like '     "<Test>"'.
Select all, copy.

Switch to TB9, set cursor into Notes.
Now: Paste. Result: I see '"<Test>"'. The leading tab and space are removed.
Try: Paste and Match Format". Result: I see '""', i.e. only the quotation marks, no leading tab, or space, nor signs, no text.

[Bug] Notes with horizontal rule - cannot move cursor downwards
Please try:
Enter a first line of text,
press return,
enter a second line of text;
Move cursor to beginning of second line.
Insert Horizontal Rule.
Now navigate, just use the cursor keys.

You can move the cursor upwards to the first line, but not downwards to the second line - the cursor jumps back from the rule to the first line.

You can select text (press and hold shift, move the cursor) only up to the end of the first line. Again, the second line is not reachable via cursor keys.


Now, please try:
Enter a first line of text,
press shift return,
enter a second line of text;
Move cursor to beginning of second line.
Insert Horizontal Rule.
Now navigate, just use the cursor keys.

You can move the cursor upwards to the first line when you use the up-key; you can NOT use the cursor-left-key. Positive: you can navigate from first to second line.

BUT: you can select text (same as above, starting at first line) only up to the end of the first line.

Feature requests: create type from type-list, create tag from tag-list
Please adjust the thought types list, resp. the tags list, to work like the appr. lists from the thought details dialog.

Right now, when I enter a not yet existing value for a type/a tag from the thought details dialog, I see the option "New Type" resp. "New Tag". By this, I can create a new type/a new tag.

The types list (via Cmd-Y), and the tags list (via Cmd-G) do NOT offer this option:

Checkbox possible?
There's an icon within the notes toolbar, "Toggle Checkbox List", by which you can set the current / selected text line(s) to start with a checkbox. The other options for lists are "unordered list", and "ordered list".

If you want you just one line with a checkbox, well, than it's a list with just one entry.

Thought - Open Attachment (Ctrl-O or Cmd-O)
Heureka! That's it!! I've selected all the time "Attachments as a List"!!!!

When I change to "Attachments as a Tab", I can "jump" from attachment to attachment, as designed.
And, within the actions menu for a single attachment, I can choose "Open".

But: if I trigger Cmd-O (assigned to menu item "Open Attachment" of thought's contextual menu), the attachments list pops up, as shown before. And here, the cursor keys do not work ...

And *grumble, grumble* I can NOT assign Cmd-O twice ("Attachments > Open", "Thought > Open Attachment"), even though imho one excludes the other.

Christian
Thought - Open Attachment (Ctrl-O or Cmd-O)
... now on TB 9.0.228 ...

Tested Cmd-Shift-T, Ctrl-T, Alt-F11, Ctrl-Alt-Cmd-0 (keyboard & numpad).

Result: Cursor stays in search field (or, in notes ...). No focus change.

Christian
Thought - Open Attachment (Ctrl-O or Cmd-O)
mmh, that's weird - for me, on macOS Sierra 10.12.6, with TheBrain 9.0.227, neither Alt-Tab, nor Alt-Shift-Tab, nor Alt-Ctrl-Tab, nor other keyboard shortcuts works as described for 'Next Content Tab'. To be sure, I've restarted TB each time when I changed the keyboard shortcut.

The scenario:
Cursor was in search field, the search field was empty.
A 'xxxx-Tab' created/inserted a tab into the search field; when pressed a second time, the focus was set to the 'Create an orphan thought'-button; when pressed a third time, focus and cursor was set back to the search field, right behind the tab created before ...

Btw: when 'Alt-Tab' is pressed in notes, the cursor disappears - but text can still be entered ...

Regards,
Christian
