@Harlan : also, I would say tha The Brain, has always been , by very far, the worst performer of any app I use.  it has always been very inneficient in terms of processor power. on a MacbookPro with 2,8 GHz Intel Core i7 and 16 GB RAM, all versions of TheBrain ( inclusing the lates v12 betas ) are constantly hitting 80 to 120% (!) of processor use. And that with around 70 Thoughts in it. Tinderbox, with nearly a 1000 notes barely hits 20% at most on the processor ( whatever map mode I’m using ), Devonthink with more than thousand documents never goes over 5 or 6%

I’m getting into 3D creation, and at times TheBrain consumes almost as much processor power as some rendering I’ve been doing in Cinema 4D. There is absolutely no way in hell that an app like TheBrain with 80 notes needs as much power as a high-end 3D modeling software rendering with hundreds of polygon ! Unless it’s due to ( and I’m very sorry to say this but it has to be said ) very clumsy programming.
