I'm trying to export meaningful XML with parent-child & jump relations.

The XML does not appear to carry these relations in any meaningful way that I can determine.

Is there a workable solution?

The XML is meaningful! ;-)  You need to look for the relations in the <Links>-tag which contains multiple <Link>-Elements, each referencing the two linked thoughts as <idA> and <idB> and specifying a link-type using <dir>...

Hello

can any of you two incidentally suggest a XML (freeware) editor ?

I use JEX but it's less than perfect.

thanks

Thanks for suggestion. The Thoughts don't appear to carry a Link attribute. I'm exporting Brain XML. What am I missing?

Hmm,

IF the exported brain contains linked thoughts
ANDIF you are really sure that your XML does not contain <Links>
ANDIF it is not your editor hiding them (because of filesize etc.)
THEN I'd suggest to get in touch with support@thebrain.com  
ENDIF  ;-)


@enkidu I'm using UEStudio (big brother of Ultraedit) which offers sufficient XML-Support for the little editing I do. Have never needed to look for other tools, so can't recommend anything else.

When you export to an XML format, the <Links> section are under the <Source>, <Attributes>, and <Thoughts> sections. 
The links will contain the thought GUIDs it links to under <idA> or <idB>. 
The easiest way to get a feel for the links is to locate a thought you want to find, copy it's GUID number, and then do a find in the file for other instances of that GUID.

There's a few tidbits and files related to the XML structure in my TheBrain User Knowledgebase webbrain. You may find that helpful also.
