We've been discussing thought icons for a while now, and the syncing problem. Was reported as a bug more than a year ago.
Received this note from Matt at the Brain: "This is actually a known issue that we hope to resolve in the final release of version 8. What we have found is that all the icons that exist in the ORIGINAL Brain, will not be synced to corresponding machines that download the BrainZip from the cloud.
The problem started in version 7 and still exists in the current release of 8."
Any word on whether this is fixed in the release version of Brain 8, apparently 0.0.4? But more importantly, what's the workaround. Not to use a brainzip when first setting up teambrain for multiple people? Any other workaround if it's not fixed in 8? Ideally, it would be nice to have it fixed!
