I've just discovered another good reason to have "
Unlink (selected Thought) from Active" in the Thought menu as a new option. I recently unchecked the Draw Links options in Preferences as I was starting to work a lot more in Outline View where, like Normal View, you can tell the relationships between Thoughts by their positions, and I found the thick wad of downward streaming links from the Home Thought very hard on the eyes, so turned them all off:
Before - hard on the eyes After - blessed relief Then it struck me - how will I be able to find a link easily so I can cut it? No good highlighting one of the thoughts at each end, the highlight vanishes as soon as I try moving out along the link and I end up fumbling in the dark until I hit it. To switch link display on/off means drilling down into Preferences (4 clicks) before I can cut a link, then 4 clicks to revert to link display off, each time. Hmm. Being able to do it from a a Thought's context menu option is starting to look pretty good.
