·         Visible Thought Types

o    Thought Types are now visible as special Thoughts, similar to Tag Thoughts.

o    To activate a type, use instant activate or select Type > Activate from the Properties & Attachments tool

o    Type Thoughts are displayed in the plex with all their instances as children

o    Types have a dotted outline to distinguish them from normal thoughts

o    Types can be edited by activating them and using the Properties & Attachments tool, just like any other Thought

o    Similarly, Types can be deleted by activating them, then deleting them via the Thought menu or via the context menu

o    When a Type is created, it is activated so that you can set its properties easily

o    Like Tag Thoughts, Type Thoughts are only displayed in the plex when they are active and thus do not clutter the plex unnecessarily

o    To set a Thought’s type, link to the type as a parent. You can also still set the type using the menus and the via the Properties and Attachments tool of a Thought.

o    A Thought’s type can be removed by unlinking it.

o    Instances of a Type can be created/linked by dragging from the child gate of a Type Thought

o    Supertypes can be created/linked by dragging from the parent gate of a Type Thought

o    If you want to reuse the Types you have created in one Brain you can copy and paste them from one Brain to another just like other Thoughts
