Context: I visit the web site of a company using my browser. In order to be able to revisit that web site later with one click, I drag the URL into my brain to create a thought.  The icon gets imported automatically. Fine! That's what the brain was made for (among other things). One click - back to the web site.

Problem: Then I add some attachments to that thought. Nice to have many attachements. But: If the thought has attachements, I first have to search the attachments and then click the icon. This is...

  • inconsistent: To get to a web site should be a matter of one click, no matter what.
  • a waste of time: Attachements are attachements, because I rarely use them,  and because I only want to look at them when needed (i.e. old email messages, that I keep for reference). I don't want to see them all the time! But the way things are, PB forces me, to do so.

Most of the time I just want to revisit the web site of the company and not look at the attachements.

Suggested solution:

Make one of the attachements a 'Preferred action' or 'Preferred icon' and show this as the thought icon. One-click-behavior should activate this action, not open the attachments. Going to the attachments should have secondary priority (using right click + context menu).
 
I know, I've brought up this issue already, but the more I work with the brain, the more I experience this as a waste of time. It just doesn't represent the normal work flow.

This is a great solution. I come up against this all the time. I'd love user-selectable preferred attachments for both launch and icon display
Be vewy quiet. I'm hunting wabbit.

Agreed with 'Preferred action' or 'Preferred icon' feature!
