Things I have tried
I am new to Obsidian. In trying to use it for a religious research project, I have become stymied.
I have a large collection of blocks I have brought in from Readwise. Some are alone in their file, others are together in larger files but the blocks are separated by blank lines. I want to gather in a new note all of each block that has the word “bless” and the word “breath” in it. It is OK if those words are embedded in larger words like “breathe” and “blessing.”
In a new note file called “b and b.md” I use the editor to put at the top of the file
I go to preview, and voila, there seem to be many chunks of blocks and they are all correct answers to the query. It is finding all the right blocks, but it is not bringing the entire block for longer blocks.
When I look at the file with another application (VSCode), I discover that all that is in the “b and b.md” file is the query. Those blocks it had seemed to have brought in were not there.
What I’m trying to do
So my questions are, is there a way to make obsidian actually gather the blocks that satisfy the query into a new note, and to bring in all of each block?
And thank you!
