I've been using TheBrain for quite a few years, but just now discovered that when I hit command arrow to create a new thought, I can multiple select from the suggestions list. Wow, is that ever useful and I can't believe I didn't know it was possible.

Dan, can you clarify "command arrow." Maybe you're on a Mac?   Curious what the Windows equivalent might be.

Mark,

Windows equivalent would be F6, F7, or F8. These are the default keyboard shortcuts for creating new Thoughts on Windows. ⌘+Arrow Key Left, Right, and Down are the shortcuts on Mac. You can, of course, change these in Preferences > Accelerators.

OMG:
  • ⌘ + ↓ = New Child
  • ⌘ + ← = New jump
  • ⌘ + ↑ = New Parent
Much easier than the F6 through F8. Genius, thanks!

Update: Wow, it works much better with using the arrow keys to navigate thoughts also. Genius!

How does Command Arrow lead to "multiple select"? All I get is an input box for a new thought.

Enkidu,

Good advice, and I'm a manual addict, but it doesn't mean everything sticks. I'm not a cartoonist, but if I was I'd reply to your post by drawing a bunch of people assembled for a user's group meeting where all they have to say to each other is "rtfm."

I find that the little things that people share regarding their workflows are often the most useful tips.

Hello dan

I assure you my comment was meant to be 100% friendly from an old IT dinosaur who's read so many manuals that he's stopped reading them altogether !

I'm no cartoonist either, but the best one I found on IT is this :

AUGH ! (RTFM in prehistoric lingo ;-)

You'll need to start typing so that Existing Thoughts appear. You can then hold down SHIFT+Arrow Down/Up to select multiple existing Thoughts:

Have just remapped my keyboard, including Crtl-Right Arrow to Capture Thought Icon, and set the "activate new thought" in preferences, and realizing that I can save hundreds of mouse clicks per day.  Great stuff.  

Would be great if there could be a Forum or somewhere on the website entitled "So you think you're a power user?" where these kinds of tips and tricks were organized for always easy access!

Happy Holidays,

Mark
