If I use a file name (i.e. 'autoruns.exe') as a thought name, the file name extension ('.exe') is suppressed. I rather would like to see the file extensions. What do I have to change?

Reinhard ,

I've tested this with multiple "file extension" names, including your example, and have found no issue naming Thoughts. Anything I may be missing during testing?

I think he's referring to .exe files, .doc files etc being dragged in and the extension then not being visible in the thought name.

 

It's a fair request, but I for one wouldn't like this feature, so if it was implemented it should be optioned in preferences.

Yes, Spacenexus is right; it happens when dragging filenames into the plex.
(My fault: I didn't test to enter filenames manually but just assumend the same behavior.)
And yes, it would be best to make this a preference (similar to the one in Windows Explorer).

If you use TheBrain as a software repository and drag code files into a brain, losing the file extensions would mean that you can't distinguish say C/C++ header files and implementation files, or you can't tell Python from PHP files. (Of course, then you could use tags, types, colors, whatever. But that would be more work.)

Recall also that the icons already automatically reflect file type so that image so that does already help.

Not quite. It adds to the confusion. Have a look at this:

I will see if this is something that can be implemented. A temporary workaround, in the meantime, is to simply rename the Thought to include the extension after the file has been added.
