I have made a lot of feature requests about text-to-Thought-links and a lot have been discussed recently.

What I didn't think of yet, was to simply overload the normal F6/F7/F8-commands.
[I'm of course referring to Thought>create new Child/Parent/Jump Thought]
When used on the Plex, they should do the same as before, creating a respective link on the Plex.
When used from within the Notes-Editor, they should also do that, but at the same time create a text-to-Thought-link appearing at the cursor. (and when text is selected, it should populate the search-field, and when nothing is selected, it should create a new Thought and create a text-link to it)

At the moment there's no real point to use F6/F7/F8 from within the Notes-Editor, anyway.
So it wouldn't overwrite functionality that people are likely to actively use.
Making a Plex-command do different things, depending on whether the Plex or the Contents-area is active, is already possible as View>Zoom in and View>Zoom out demonstrates.


Also I propose that "Thought>create Thought" should also be overloaded and be merged with Notes>Insert Link to Thought.
When a term is entered in the search-field, pressing "Thought>create Thought" should still create an Orphan-Thought with that name.
However at the moment this command won't do anything, if nothing has been typed.
I suggest that in the Plex (without anything typed in the search box), it would open the Thought-Creation dialog.
If an already existing Thought is selected, it'll simply activate it.
If the search-term doesn't match an existing Thought, it would create a new Orphan Thought and activate it.
In the Notes-Editor it should work exactly like Notes>Insert Link to Thought, except that it should be possible to create a new Orphan Thought (and link to it), without activating it.

The first advantage is that it's easier now to create Orphan-Thoughts from many different contexts, eliminating useless movement.
The second one is that it would make it easy and intuitive to make Plex-mirrored text-to-Thought-links.
(speeding up this process enables whole new workflows)
The third one, would be easier maintenance with only one Thought-Creation dialog existing and having to be maintained (or extended with new features).
The fourth one, is that the user has to remember/assign fewer keybindings.

Also it would then be sensible to add F5 to be the default keybinding for "Thought>create Thought", because in functionality it would naturally extend the defaults for F6 to F8. (I already have it set up like that, personally)
