Hi,

Sorry, the following procedure is the best workaround I can think of:

1. Create a new thought "TEMP";
2. Edit > Link Selection as Children of TEMP;
3. Edit > Remove Search Results from Selection;
4. Edit > Unlink Selection;
5. Edit > Clear Selection;
6. Ctrl-Click the child-gate of "TEMP" to add all its child thoughts to Selection;

Done.

FYI, PB 5.5 beta will be released "soon" Maybe then we could find a better solution.

Sorry I didn't explain clear enough in my previous post.

Let's say there are 4 thoughts in Selection:
* Apple
* Apple pie
* Fruit
* Food

Searching on "Apple" then selecting "In Selection" will return the following 2 results:
* Apple
* Apple pie

Now, if I understand correctly, you want to remove "Fruit" and "Food" from Selection, that is, you want Selection contains only the search results ("Apple" and "Apple pie"), right?

To accomplish this, try the following procedure:

1. Create a new thought "TEMP", then Edit > Link Selection as Children of TEMP. Now TEMP contains:
* Apple
* Apple pie
* Fruit
* Food

2. Edit > Remove Search Results from Selection. Now Selection contains:
* Fruit
* Food

3. Edit > Unlink Selection. Now TEMP contains:
* Apple
* Apple pie

4. Edit > Clear Selection.

5. Ctrl-Click the child-gate of "TEMP" to add its children to Selection. Now Selection contains:
* Apple
* Apple pie

6. Delete "TEMP".

Done.


This procedure is very time consuming, but it could save you some time if you have a large number of thoughts in Selection. If you have only a few number of thoughts in Selection, like the above example, in Selection box, you can simply Ctrl-Click on "Fruit" and "Food" to remove them from Selection.
