this only works if "Open the last used Brain at startup" is unchecked and if no Brain was opened (i. e. start PB and close it immediately). Otherwise it is still not possible to exit PB when no Brain is open and in auto-hide.

Since I've noticed but never been able to duplicate this bug which has persisted for many versions, first reported by zenrain I think, it will be even more difficult to confirm that it's gone, but if as you say your team has actually managed to run this one to earth and remove it, that's worth this upgrade alone. I'm sure zenrain will be delighted too. Well done.

Version 5.5.0.5-b

·         Important Fixes

o    Tags show in the correct default color in menus and in tags tab



Tags pane is greatly improved now, thanks for that.

One minor issue with now though. Click on a Tag to show all Thoughts with that tag, now navigate to another thought, for example with Alt-Left. The selected Tag stays highlighted, see attached screenshot.

I don't mind and it doesn't matter.

thanks so much for fixing up the issue with the virtual thoughts.  That was one that I used a lot and I was missing the context menus!

What Preferences > Color is used as the default for the background of the Tags pane, I.e., is the background of this pane user-selectable? I don't think this has been explained.

Luckily for me, I use black as my background color for the Plex, and on my XP system, the tags pane background is black too. But what about those guys with a light or white background? Their tags are going to have to be black, to stand out against the Plex.  Surely it must be possible to vary this.

I don't want to waste time trying out every color preference to see if changing them makes any difference to the black of the tags pane background, so someone please tell me how this is chosen.

The background, center is used. This matches most closely with what will actually be displayed in the plex.

Thanks for the info. We'll take care of this in the next release.

Thanks Harlan, that's worth knowing.
