Hello there! My name is Arthur, and I’m a PhD in Computer Science from TU Delft, in The Netherlands, working specifically with Natural Language Processing and Information Retrieval. I feel that something that would improve Obsidian a LOT (or any other PKM system) is a more robust “Unliked Mentions” tab. By that, I mean some type of Machine Lea...

Can you open a linked note with a shortcut?
01:23
Instead of having to cmd+click on it.
Avatar
I think the problem here is how would the shortcut know which link to open?
Avatar
The one the cursor is on
01:25
In the same way vimwiki does it
01:29
I find myself not wanting to leave the keyboard for navigation and think a keyboard-only shortcut that could open a link at the text cursor position is at would be really handy for this case.
01:30
another question, if there a way to change the repeat-rate for VIM mode?

Hello peepoHey.
04:20
Does anybody know of a way to link and preview a note that is related to the initial note?????
04:22
Something along the lines of having a snippet of what that other note has without me having to open up that note entirely.
Avatar
you can embed a note like that : ![[another note]] or just a part of a note : ![[another note#some chapter title]] Not sure if that's exactly what you're looking for.

when do you decide between using Obsidian Sync and just any cloud storage like iCloud Drive? Am wondering if it's worth getting it. I do use Windows for work where I don't want my iCloud to sync, however, will it cause issues if I use iCloud Drive and Sync?
Avatar
I use OneDrive as a secondary back-up on desktop only, and Obsidian Sync for all sync related requirements. I think the decision point here is whether it's worth paying a little money for fewer headaches

I use Obsidian Sync so that I can have painless sync to my Windows PC, Android phone and my Apple iPad. It just seems to work so far handling possible conflicts without issue, and has granularity e.g. sync settings but don't sync plugins. It might be possible to reproduce that with other sync services, but not as easily. For me, as @Isaac says, it's really whether paying a few $$ is worth it to you to make the whole thing easier. I backup periodically onto OneDrive, just in case... 🙂

Can you guys share your index, I can't figure it out on how to split different corner of my life

This is basically all i have. 🙂 No organization at all and it gives me total freedom to structure my garbage in any way i want. 🙂
06:28
All my files uses aliases for search and linking purposes.
06:30
I don't use file explorer at all. Collapsed 100% of time. ctrl + o is all i need to find what i am looking for. Or Oby Search, but i don't use it too much.
06:32
If the file is too big to fit into one portrait screen, then i make new file and link it to the "parent" file. Like in this case "SSH" is the "root index" for the SSH topic. Then it contains links to other subsections.
06:32
I tried to use embed blocks, but imo it gets messy pretty quickly.
06:34
In the end i use git commit -m "2021-12-01" , git push to backup everything.
06:38
I like this approach because i don't care about file names. If i am not happy of heading, i can change it any time (alongside alias) and it will be reflected across whole library because Oby uses file names for the linking and i don't change those ever.

If you plan to use iCloud on one device simply to use other apps then I think you'll be fine. You could encounter file locking issues, but I'd think they'd be handled OK. Where you would have potential problems is, for example, if you were using both iCloud and Obsidian Sync on both an iPad and a Mac. The Obsidian Sync status is maintained by a file in the vault; if that file got synced by iCloud from one device to another you could end up with Obsidian Sync losing track on that machine and data loss/corruption.

For what it's worth, I've learned (the hard way) that doing too much organizing & system design up front can be counterproductive when it comes to actually getting things done. These days I tend to start things with the largest possible "buckets," and as I add notes, files and other content, a natural organizing scheme tends to emerge sooner or later.

It's possible, but working with YAML for regex isn't really fun because there are so many ways to write it. If it's always implemented the same way, it's not too complicated, but if you want to have a catch-all, then it's tricky.

Hey everyone! Currently moving over from Roam to Obsidian. Right now struggling with what to do about folders, since there was no hierarchy in Roam. Any resource recommendations would be more than helpful!
I started off trying to come up with a folder structure, failed miserably, then (having played with Logseq and Roam) decided I'd do everything starting from the daily notes and linking as appropriate. So now I really only have three folders - pages, journal (daily notes) and literature (where I put extracts/highlights from Zotero and Hypothes.is - I feel they're raw material rather than "knowledge").

I also have folders for templates (ztemplates and ztemplater) and my exported Zotero database (zzotero).

Exactly that - effectively my book/article summary goes there. I may then further extract elements from there into individual notes if I feel it's particularly worth isolating an "atomic" idea. Section/block referencing within Obsidian means that that's not always necessary for the purposes of creating an outline.

^(?<=---\n(?:^.+$\n)*)(^rating: 5$)\n(?=(?:^.+$\n)*^---$) You could use that. You could also get rid of ^ and $, that's up to you.

It only catches if there's exactly rating: 5 and not rating: [5] or rating: - 5 or rating: - 5 Which would all be valid YAML.

If you mean [[links like this]] then it allows you to start connecting notes and ideas together. Instead of a solitary note, you can start to build connected notes (and as @cotemaxime said, there's a ton of different reasons why folks will create links).

For all those who were searcing for a git syncing on ios and android for free, there is an editor Spck Editor both on IOS and Android. Its free and can push, pull, commit. I don't know if it would work for Obsidian Mobile on iOS, but on Android its fairly easy. Basically you can clone your repo anywhere on the storage (Android) and then make it a vault! But, when it comes to iOS, it will have the same problem as other apps. Cross-app sharing seems to be difficult in IOS. Still I don't know why we can't have access via Files app like other apps like Documents or XODO pdf viewer does.

Morning all! ☕ Wanted to see if anyone has a good workflow for importing meeting details from Outlook into Obsidian. I'm assuming I'll have to save the .ics file, but would love to hear the thoughts. I couldn't seem to find a community plugin that fits

Just wanted to leave a message here to thank the devs and the team. Obsidian mobile is completely changing my workflow in the best possible way (using it with sync). The app is 👌 ! Looking forward to what is coming next! (edited)
Hard agree. I was waiting for the mobile app + Sync before I could fully commit. Up to now I've been using a combination of this, Dynalist (high-level planner/outliner) and Simplenote (quick/disposable notes). Now Obsidian is starting to feel like a viable combo solution, at least for me & my needs.

Is this possible to remove or rename Obsidian Sync vault? I read in docs I can have no more than 5 of them, so I don't want to abandon current one and let it decrease my limit

Hi friends! Just wanted to pop in and let y'all know that I'm going to be sharing my vault on Sunday at 10:00 AM PT (UTC-7). It's somewhat sanitized for public consumption, y'all don't need pictures of my kid's social security card, but a couple of people expressed interest and I finally bit the bullet and bought publish in honor of me moving my personal newsletter over to ghost instead of burying past issues in mailerlite PDFs (hopefully 😅 still have some server kinks to work out). The idea is to make some of my research easier to reference and share with fans of my writing and develop a more regular short-form analysis blogging schedule since there's been some interest in that, and I know people have been asking for more examples of mature vaults that aren't notes about notetaking. Hopefully mine fits the bill and it's useful 🙂 Anywho, I'm almost definitely talking about QuickAdd, how I've started to use tags (gasp!), and my janky inbox system. There's also going to be a 30-min ask-me-anything segment, so folks will have an opportunity to poke around and ask me questions on Zoom while I'm screensharing. @nickmilo is being kind enough to host me as first guest for the new LYT House feature, which I'm super grateful for because I mostly find Zoom and YouTube terrifying.

Curio Heart 0715YYYY-105716
That count only applies to active sync vaults; removing a vault from sync keeps that vault from continuing to count against this limit. Renaming a vault will, at least for now, require that you delete and create a new sync vault, then connect it back with the desired vault. If you only have one synced vault at the time you do this, you will still have the same number of vaults available afterward.

Notion has two major advantages: 1) It's very good for working with teams. It's web-based and has permissions, sharing, collaboration tools, etc. built in. Obsidian is magical for individual use, but I would not describe it as a great team tool in its current state. 2) It's much more mature in its use of structured data—both a better user experience for writing/managing metadata, custom fields, etc., and a lot more ways to view, sort and filter them: tables, cards, feeds, Kanban boards, etc. On the latter I think Obsidian has a lot of potential (which is something I'm starting to work on, actually!), but as it stands Notion does that stuff a lot better.

Is there a setting or command to resize a window width automatically to fit the max width of the note (assuming you've got Readable Line Length enabled)? Ideally, to do that for ALL open notes? Or something that limits the max width of an open note?

I don't really have a static layout I use so I'm frequently adding/moving things around and trying to resize everything to a similar width is.. an exercise if you've got > 1 column.

Ever have a note just disappear on you while you were editing it? In edit mode on my phone, the screen suddenly said No File Is Open, and the note was gone. Luckily it didn’t (or hadn’t yet) synced back to my laptop, I copied the text to save it just in case but in due course it synced back to the folder and all is now well. Very weird experience.

Well, I just put a little demonstration together to show how a linear exploration might occur through a note sequence. I hope it is clear though how you might then follow different branches of the note sequence by following tags and folgezettels, and related notes of course. https://www.loom.com/share/3862f71239bd40d0b243a287c38f0005 (redid video) (edited)

For instance, I've got an alias set up for "ADA" so that all I type on my end when I want to link my Americans with Disability Act note, is [[ADA and select from the list and get [[Americans with Disability Act|ADA]] inserted. Is this what you mean, workflow wise? (edited)

Yes, so once I add an alias front matter on any note, that alias will be available in any other note I want as well? This does help somewhat but often linking is spontaneous and sometimes I may want to link to aliases which are not obvious and unpredictable.

I do a fair amount of non-alias links too. At least right now, my workflow is use [[ to trigger a link, start typing a few letters from the title, select the page I want from the dropdown, and then hit the left arrow key twice and add a custom alias (i.e. |the words I'd rather have). This may not help right this moment, but I was surprised how quickly it became muscle memory.

Also when I go back and want to link something previously unlinked (that is a non-alias), the quickest workflow is to select it with mouse, then cut it, insert link to page I want to link to, {tab}, and then paste..?

Previously unlinked non-alias? If I know it's something that is a note title (eg. I've typed out Americans with Disability Act in full) you can highlight that term, and just hit [[ twice. OR you can check out the Link panel on the Americans with Disability Act page, and see all unlinked mentions across multiple pages. (I may have misunderstood your question, sorry!

What I usually do then is I click before the word/phrase (for instance monopolistic, parasitic corporations), would type [[Mod and select "Modern Capitalism", then delete the ]]. I'd toss a | in there and re-add ]] at the end of "corporations. And I'm completely 👀 to see if @Eleanor Konik has a better suggestion now! 😄

I found Obsidian about a year ago when I wanted to take notes about a complex French novel for a book group. I liked Obsidian because it let me link characters to the main narrative and to each other. I let Obsidian slide after that until recently when I started to notice that it was picking up mindshare. Now I'm getting excited about it again.

Here are the NVAlt Features I miss in Obsidian: 1. The ability to arrow-key up and down to select between the results while searching. 2. The ability to create a new note directly from the search bar when if there is no result (with the Enter key) 3. In the search bar, when there are no results you should still be able to vertically scroll through the flat list of all notes, sorted by date or alphabetically

Eleanor Konik 0715YYYY-190857
so, I started out with a more wikipedia "encyclopedic" style and I found that the WALL OF TEXT was so unspecific that it was functionally useless for what I was usually checking for, and I really prefer the hand-made (NOT dataview automated) "map of content" for getting a top-level overview of the stuff about a broad topic I care about, and then really really narrow and specific claims being their own file with a descriptive filename, so I can "remember at a glance" Like, [[greek]] (longform writeup overview of greece) is a lot less useful for me than [[greek]] (bullet point entry point into my notes with logical titles like "[[greeks hated carthiginians]]" "ancient greece is part of [[classical antiquity]]" "[[the amazons by adrienne]] mayor discusses greek myths about the [[scythian]] people and reveals a lot about greek thought and politics"

(I did actually go through them and pull out relevant pages and action them into Evernote at the time, though.) They have actually come in handy on occasion, but very rarely. It's nice to look through every once in a while, and I've found some old sketches for design work I did eons ago. Occasionally good to be able to show old process work etc. But it's amazing how important fleeting notes were at the time, and how little they matter later.

The best backup are also not things like dropbox/onedrive/etc but something as simple as a zip file saved to an external drive or a NAS AND a sync service or git or whatever. What you want for important files is 3 independant copy to exists of a file: one local, one remote and one one a cloud

most cloud service actually have versioning though? lynxHmm maybe not exactly as good for text file but yeah. The best backup are also not things like dropbox/onedrive/etc but something as simple as a zip file saved to an external drive or a NAS AND a sync service or git or whatever. What you want for important files is 3 independant copy to exists of a file: one local, one remote and one one a cloud

If it's YouTube, you can just use the embed code generated by YouTube straight into your document. Example: https://publish.obsidian.md/leah/50+Reference/50.05+Audiovisual/50.05.02+YouTube/Peacock+Dress+2021-05+Video+Diary+(Cathy+Hay)

Hi friends! Just wanted to pop in and let y'all know that I'm going to be sharing my vault on Sunday at 10:00 AM PT (UTC-7). It's somewhat sanitized for public consumption, y'all don't need pictures of my kid's social security card, but a couple of people expressed interest and I finally bit the bullet and bought publish in honor of me moving my personal newsletter over to ghost instead of burying past issues in mailerlite PDFs (hopefully 😅 still have some server kinks to work out). The idea is to make some of my research easier to reference and share with fans of my writing and develop a more regular short-form analysis blogging schedule since there's been some interest in that, and I know people have been asking for more examples of mature vaults that aren't notes about notetaking. Hopefully mine fits the bill and it's useful 🙂 Anywho, I'm almost definitely talking about QuickAdd, how I've started to use tags (gasp!), and my janky inbox system. There's also going to be a 30-min ask-me-anything segment, so folks will have an opportunity to poke around and ask me questions on Zoom while I'm screensharing. @nickmilo is being kind enough to host me as first guest for the new LYT House feature, which I'm super grateful for because I mostly find Zoom and YouTube terrifying.

I thought I might share this here as well: https://www.willus.com/k2pdfopt/ That tool takes PDFs, scans the text and formats the file so that it is readable in kindle readers. It is much better in my experience than just bringing the PDF into your kindle and trying to read it by zooming. In case it is of use to anyone. Tool looks old, but it works and the dev is still active
Belatedly stumbled across this. Looks good. I use Calibre for my document conversion needs e.g. PDF to .mobi or .epub to .mobi. Works pretty well.

it doesn't magically happen after you add cssclass: img-grid, that merely adds a CSS class for this note, some theme/snippet still needs to do the heavy lifting

It looks like the developer is working on shipping a fix for the data loss. I would try to update the plugin in a few hours -- you can check their repo for more details. I suppose if you want to risk the data loss of your files you could try to manually install the blocked version and change some of the IDs in the .json files, but I would recommend waiting for a fix if one hasn't already shipped.

Mobile shipped this week so I believe the desktop insider and desktop public are both on 12.10 while we focus on getting people ramped up with mobile; I think the mobile insider is a couple of versions ahead of the public version though. You can usually see the insider release notes on the announcement section of the forums though :)

Sync is set up on my iPad and iPhone. When I turned on my iPad today and sync removed many files I created yesterday on my Macbook. It assumed that Obsidian on my iPad was the latest version of files (not the case). Two questions: 1. How can I make sure the current Macbook vault is considered the latest version and not changed to reflect the mobile versions. I turned off sync on the desktop. I also turned off WiFi before starting the computer and made a copy of my vault. I assume, however, that the damage has been done and the new (incorrect version) is now on the Obsidian server ready to download whenever I turn sync back on. 2. After this is resolved are there settings to ensure either one way sync (Macbook to all mobile versions) OR a setting so that only the latest files sync each way. It seemed to assume the whole mobile vault was the latest version, even though many files sync removed were newer than the mobile vault. (Sorry for long-winded question)

That's above my pay grade; could be a bug with Obsidian, or the Dataview plugin, or specific to Obsidian on iOS. I have a similar template currently working on Obsidian for Android; when I get a chance I'll update this gist with that code, after confirming that it works on macOS and Android. If you still get this error then it's probably something platform-specific.

Hey guys. I'm trying to implement my current workflow into obsidian. I capture the title with url in the daily note than under it I write a page as a tag for highlight & literature notes. Now I can see all my literature notes in one page in reference section. The reference section has a nice feature where it shows the parent bullet. So I know from what source I wrote the note from. But in obsidian the backlink & search section doesn't show the whole note context. Which makes it hard to navigate. How do you guys capture source notes? (edited)

1. you can't for now there's no such things as "this one over the other" normally it takes the more recent files but sometimes on mobile weird stuff happens. Delete files are still on the server though and you can restore them from the deleted files menu (and the file recovery plugin too iirc) you can also see which devices deleted files and which files in the log to help. 2. could be a nice idea for now there's nothing but feel free to do a FR on the forum

Thanks. It changed removed 75-100 files so I think that trying to restore everything with links may be really clunky. Maybe I’ll just try and create an empty vault, sync that. Then replace it with a copy of the old vault and sync that and then turn off sync. Seems like being able to choose the sync directionality would be helpful

I see some emoji reactions are bound to automations. So far I am aware of 🔖 one to save something for myself for the future. But I also read above about “slapping a star”. And I see 🐛 quite often too. Do we have a single place where those reaction automations are described? I would look for it in #welcome because it’s the intro channel and it’s not spammed with messages. (edited)

So my previous question applies here too: wouldn’t it be better to have info about emoji reactions automations and about how to start usage of carl written down somewhere, perhaps in #welcome ? Not it is a little bit intimidating, I am getting a feeling of a place where everyone knows how to do things but me 😅

the documentation for carl is VERY lengthy (https://docs.carl.gg/), and probably not suitable for a quick message, but I can see about asking the developers to add a note to welcome that this server uses carlbot and the bookmark bot with a link to the documentation for them.

I think a plug-in could do this? I'm not totally sure, I haven't looked at the plugin API deeply yet, it seems to be reasonably easy to use based on how many plugins there seem to be and they appear to be capable of changing pretty much any functionality in the entire app anywhere, although most of course don't reach out of their comfort zone that far (edited)

question of my own: does anyone know of a theme or plug-in that makes the backlinks section less obtrusive?

I might just use a plugin or external thing that automatically adds them to the documents themselves.

you can toggle that with the three dots in the panes top; what does not persist through restarths though, but there is a plugin that does that(not in community plugins, also don't have the url handy)

I've messed with those settings and what I really want is for the backlinks to either be or appear to be inline in the page. I'm likely to spend most of my time using obsidian on my phone, that's not necessarily ideal but it's what I predict I will end up doing. so I would prefer something that gets the backlinks to be inside the main document. My intended usage pattern is for no document to be longer than about five lines, with almost all structure as links. so I'm hoping there is a CSS theme that can make the backlinks section less obtrusive. I've also had issues keeping it open and in sync with the main pane

ahhh. I unfortunately don't know off the top of my head how you'd do that, but I might try putting the variables in something like state.md, and then querying them with one of the querying plugins. That's assuming that you want this interactive experience to occur while using the obsidian app itself, if instead you are intending to publish this then the set of available approaches becomes much wider and I might consider ways to make this an MDX react app (though I admit that is partly because I'm experienced with such things) (edited)
12:00
If you'd like to talk about how to actually make this a react application built in MDX that sounds like something I'd be interested in discussing though I don't have time to properly get into it right now. relevant tools would be the obsidian mdx plugin and next.js

Hi friends! Just wanted to pop in and let y'all know that I'm going to be sharing my vault on Sunday at 10:00 AM PT (UTC-7). It's somewhat sanitized for public consumption, y'all don't need pictures of my kid's social security card, but a couple of people expressed interest and I finally bit the bullet and bought publish in honor of me moving my personal newsletter over to ghost instead of burying past issues in mailerlite PDFs (hopefully 😅 still have some server kinks to work out). The idea is to make some of my research easier to reference and share with fans of my writing and develop a more regular short-form analysis blogging schedule since there's been some interest in that, and I know people have been asking for more examples of mature vaults that aren't notes about notetaking. Hopefully mine fits the bill and it's useful 🙂 Anywho, I'm almost definitely talking about QuickAdd, how I've started to use tags (gasp!), and my janky inbox system. There's also going to be a 30-min ask-me-anything segment, so folks will have an opportunity to poke around and ask me questions on Zoom while I'm screensharing. @nickmilo is being kind enough to host me as first guest for the new LYT House feature, which I'm super grateful for because I mostly find Zoom and YouTube terrifying.

Is it possible to have "namespaces" show up in the backlinks? What I mean by "namespaces" here follows the file naming convention of Dendron: "finances", "finances.personal", "finances.business1", etc. I am asking if it would be possible for the later to show up as "backlinks" to its "parent". It would also be cool to have them show up in the graph as linked. Thanks in advance!

yeah, it's because calendar is a seperate plugin that handles templates differently. but if you're on mobile and want to use the sharing to DNP features on android you'll want the template to work with core daily note

As my favorite plugin (Filename header sync) got disabled, i got curious about a possibility: Is it possible to make the note name support special characters? This would remove the need for the plugin. I understand that special chars are not supported because it's also the filename, but maybe there's a workaround? (edited)

cotemaxime 0716YYYY-152333
no you can't since note name are file name and filesystem don't support random set of characters only a few for various reason

Yea, I understand. My idea was a plugin that generated a valid filename even if the note name had special characters.

I.e. a plugin that removes the need for identical note name and note filename (although they should be as similar as possible).

folks, I am not being huffy or confrontational but it's gonna sound like it... I've been around Obsidian for the course and played with it a bit, but having really gone into Drafts pretty hardcore this year, I was hit by this meat of MacStories brief description of Obsidian:
At its core, Obsidian is a Markdown text editor. Just point the app to a folder on your iPhone or iPad and you're ready to get started. The app is based on web technologies, which means it is highly customizable. Obsidian supports a theming system, with a wide variety of themes provided by the app's vibrant community of users and plugins to extend the app's functionality. The app's primary views are its editor and preview mode, which can be split into multiple panes both vertically and horizontally. Obsidian also supports saved workspaces that allow users to open a predefined group of notes easily, commands for quickly opening documents and accessing the app's features, along with extensive, customizable keyboard shortcut support. Of course, notes can be linked internally, allowing for the creation of a wiki-like web of documents.
Aside from "web technologies," this is a description of Drafts basically word-for-word. I promise I'm not here to ask to be convinced or whatever - I use everything lol - but I do have a new question that I actually haven't seen answered elsewhere... What sort of feature vacuum prompted the creation of Obsidian? Or just... General motivation?

I disagree on all kinds of counts, but especially on the fundamentals: Drafts uses a proprietary data structure, it isn’t API-first, it isn’t multi-platform, and it isn’t supposed to store text long-term
15:56
I would have loved to see Drafts adopt some of Obsidian’s principles ages ago, but that isn’t what Greg wants for Drafts

Drafts supports scripting and whanot, isn’t really a markdown editor, it is a snippet editor as the base for executing code on it

Yeah, there are a ton of tools in this space and the differences between them can be really subtle & hard to squeeze into the elevator pitch. That feature set also overlaps a lot with Bear or Notability or Notion or Simplenote or even (gulp) Evernote. I rarely have any good sense of how one of these apps behaves before I try it.

ok thanks. im using non-wikilink mode. with absolute paths

(for compatability with other apps)

when i make a note and use double brackets, everything looks good, as expected
16:30
16:31
and when i move the note to a folder, the link updates as expected
16:31
but, the title ALSO updates
16:31

repeat the process (after the move). and this time the title is back to the original

Thanks for replying. Since Obsidian works with markdown files, there is no time information stored along with my notes(without specific plugins), right? I see it.

its a ~20 sec video. just shows how both relative and absolute can cause missing images in devonthink. the markdown links in obsidian dont update when the note containing them moves
