This morning I was extremely disappointed to discover the wander function in TB10 no longer includes the option of wandering through the thought notes. Instead, only the thoughts wander in the plex, while the note editor remains frozen with whatever note content was visible when the wander process began.
When I asked support about this missing feature, I was told that other users have requested this option of wandering through the notes in the desktop brain, as well -- but, in spite of this user interest, "it was determined that this 'most likely' won't be fixed because updating the notes with each thought compromises the speed of the plex".
This puzzled me because I thought we had been able to wander through the notes previously -- and with a quick check in my installation of TB9, I discovered the wander function DOES include the notes in TB9. However, this option was apparently removed at some point from TB10.
Moreover, when I checked the animation speed in TB9 (where the notes ARE included in the wander process), I didn't see any problem with the plex animation speed at all. In fact, since the wander speed control settings in TB9 and TB10 are currently identical, and since the fastest wander speed option is EXTREMELY rapid, I don't understand why plex/animation speed is even an issue here.
In addition, for my potential use cases, I actually *prefer* a slower wander speed -- and, from a practical standpoint, it makes sense that wandering through the notes would be a bit slower, in order to allow brain users more time to review the contents in the notes.
In light of this, I have since asked Support if wandering through the notes could be restored as an optional preference setting. This option could be turned OFF by default -- and then, for those of us who do NOT have concerns about the speed issue, and who DO want to wander through the notes, it would be great to be able to turn this feature back on.
I would also like to know if there are other brain owners here who would like to have the option of wandering through their notes in the desktop brain. Your feedback in the poll above, along with any additional comments below about this missing wander feature will be appreciated.
