I think I’m typically the person who would like to use Obsidian: I’ve always taken a lot of notes, for various things, especially in a creative way.
I write quite diverse texts, short stories, novels, proses, and I write a lot of notes for this work, as raw material, which sometimes become texts in their own way, and so on.
I used NV for a while, then Evernote which I left, then Apple Notes and iA Writer (which I want to continue to use for writing long forms), but I haven’t yet found the ideal for my collection of notes.
I’m currently trying Obsidian with a project in progress (novel) but I haven’t yet had the “click” with the notion of connected notes. I understand its interest theoretically, but not yet in my own experience.
I sometimes use mind mapping to make a map, to come up with ideas, but, although it’s quite effective, I find it’s a bit of a mess. I don’t know if Obsidian can help me in that sense.
What youtube videos would you advise me to learn more (I watched 5 or 6 yesterday) about this tool.
I didn’t quite understand how the “folding” feature worked despite the help (which describes the behavior, but doesn’t seem to explain how to get it, or maybe I misunderstood…) Using tabulation, I ended up with code blocks (?), and above all I couldn’t figure how to un-indent text…
Another question, is it possible to simply change the extension of a set of notes from .txt to .md without this being a problem?
Thanks a lot for your help.
