Quote: I confess I am still not really sure what it's creators intend it for. I see a lot of people saying "It doesn't quite work for me because ..." but I'm still trying to figure out what Harlan & co. had in mind when they started designing it. Ah, I can provide some perspective on that. When TheBrain 9 was in pre-release, there was a large outcry (proportionately speaking) that there was no equivalent of the v8 and prior calendar tool. I believe that the Timeline view was created to address that outcry / complaint and while doing so, revisited the whole tool itself in an attempt to improve the functionality/usability of the original v8 and prior Calendar. While there are still missing features, I believe to this extent they have been very successful. Does it meet every need? No, but neither did the v8 calendar. Creating a tool that meets every need and request I've seen presented would probably take just as much time as a re-write of TheBrain itself.
