So I have a Thought named "(p)reviews", but on the Plex and in the title-field in Contents it shows as "previews".
I'm unaware of any feature using the parenthesis that would require them to be invisible.
Is this a bug or some obscure limitation? It's kinda annoying. I really want to see this specific thought as "(p)reviews" on the Plex.

That's actually intended behavior, there's a little known feature there. I only actually found out about this myself a few weeks ago. We recently put it into the manual:  https://assets.thebrain.com/documents/TheBrain11/TheBrain11-UserGuide-07.pdf It's on page 92-93
Sorry for the confusion!

Using Parentheses to Assist with Thought Sorting
Adding parentheses around the first part of thought name will skip that part for
sorting purposes (unless there is a tie) when thoughts are grouped
alphabetically.

• To enable this feature, a thought name must have both an open
parenthesis as the first character and a close parenthesis later in the
thought name. Whitespace will be trimmed, and there must be some
thought name left after that. (Later parenthesis will be ignored.)
• Note that this is mutually exclusive to Hidden Ordering Prefixes starting
with a dot. You can only have one or the other.

Example: if your Thoughts are grouped alphabetically, the following group of
thoughts named:

(The) Beatles
Belle & Sebastian
(The) Bee Gees
(The) Beach Boys

would display as:

The Beach Boys
The Beatles
The Bee Gees
Belle & Sebastian

Ah okay, that is actually really cool. I can live with naming it ".(p)reviews" instead, which works.

By trial and error, I found that another option is
(((p)))reviews
which displays as
(p)reviews
in the plex.

What does this do to the rank ordering?    I have thoughts with numbers at the beginning, and with (((2016))) is before (((2010))).  ???

Also interesting to note that all three sets of parens show up in Web Client.

Good questions...though I don't use the web client or overstacked parentheses myself...
