It looks like this program can be a real help to me in tracking investigative details and their relationships. I would like to know if it is possible to compile a report using items within a Brain without cutting and pasting.

 thanks

The Brain does have a report tool.  But, as far as I can see this is plex related information, not content related.   Look at the user manual and/or try the trial version and see if it meets your needs.  You could also make a feature request if it does not.

Would make an interesting application.  Maybe we'll see it being used in a TV show like CSI.    Investigator enters all known associations ....  clicks on expanded view, and their it is, the critical link.   The butler stole the spoon!

Bob, let us know what you have in mind for your application. You may find the following capabilities useful:

Selecting thoughts and then copying them as a text outline. (Selection of thoughts can done manually, via search, or via the reports tab).

Creating an expanded view and then printing it (to a PDF if you like).

I am not clear by what you mean "select thoughts" How do you you select the thoughts you want included in a report?

Selections can be built manually as described here:

You can also create selections by searching, then choose Edit > Add search results to selection, or by using a report then Edit > Add report to selection. Finally, you can also use Edit > Crawl Brain and Modify Selection

I suspect some clarification between different meanings of the word "report" might help?

Report: 1. To bring back, as an answer; to relate; as what has been discovered by a person sent to examine, explore, or investigate [1913 Webster] 2. The output of a PB Query: a list of thoughts matching a set of filters.

Context 1 is a formal document with attached supporting material, usually formatted professionally and printed on paper. Context 2 owes its origins to database design, and is usually a single list of varying detail.

Be vewy quiet. I'm hunting wabbit.
