James, thank you for the reply. I will certainly send the output logs to support. I have been trying to get this to work on two machines without success.
As far as the vcard issue the search solution is awkward and quite time consuming, sometimes even impossible. I have been attempting to add my boss's contact information. I have several thousand emails from him. The search for his name has taken over 20min and still no success. It bogs down my computer and raises my blood pressure (not a good thing for my brain). I have suggested in the past this method should not be accepted as a good solution. At least have an option that would limit the search to contacts.
I understand the issue with a vCard dragged to desktop then to brain. A bad solution is just to click review duplicates and you will see the contact information. Not elegant but sure beats waiting for a never ending search to finish.
All of this then begs the question of contacts and email being links that are broken when the brain is used on other computers. I have attempted to use the "copy to brain" with interesting results. Sometimes two links show up on the non originating computer, strange no?
I can appreciate that you are a fan of TB as am I. But the lack of quality development and concern on the mac side is disappointing and frustrating. Today the tool tips still have PC named key strokes. I spent a lot of time communicating with Harlin back in the PB 5 days. I am a licensed pro user. If this was a mac developed program much of this would have been resolved years ago. A am not complaining just to complaint. I love this program. I just want to have a quick and smooth workflow that does not involve time consuming workarounds. Everytime I begin to use TB in a serious way for something mission critical I get bogged down.
I am sure that the PC base for the brain is much larger than the mac, however it should be noted that in my conversations with other IT friends at large companies they are now being required to support macs, iPads and iPhones. How great would it be to have TB on an iPad?
Thanks for listening,
