This would print all nested Deadline Tags (#Deadline/2021-10-01, #Deadline/2021-10-06) chronologically.
Feel free to adapt. Please note that only tasks are included. Normal Text lines with #Deadline would not be found. Haven’t found yet a way to improve this.
I have multiple medical issues. I’m trying to log symptoms in Obsidian as they occur. I’ve tried one large log for all issues and creating individual notes when each event occurs. Either way, I’m trying to create a note that queries the rest of the vault based on a tag and creates a note on only those things I select. However, I need the entire block or small note, not the ellipsis followed by the text I’m getting in the embed (…xyz). If I go into the search and hit the “more context” button, I get exactly what I want. But I can’t export that to a PDF to my various specialists.
Just add a “show-more-context” query operator to the query language and have it run the same code that’s already tied to the button in search.
They don’t want to have to do that each time for every result. I believe they just want the button like in native search bar that shows the full context for all results instead of having to click the arrows one by one.
I also really want this as I would like to be able to sort the results by date created or modified with the sort button. Also the collapse / expand all results is a nice feature too.
Exactly. Because I want to be able to easily query just the information each specialist wants and export to a PDF.
I guess what I really want is for them to put the button functionality in the search feature into the inline query system using query operators. Their documentation on the search feature already implies it (whether they meant to or not), and I spent a lot of time trying to use query operators to no avail. (Search)[Search]
Maybe it is a seperate request but limiting the number of results would also be very nice. I have ben using it for a while and some results become very long. Or even instead of limit 10 something like list 10 that would result in an unlimited result list but with only 10 results per ‘page’. With previous and next buttons and the number of pages in the result.
I will have to back you up on this one. I heavily use search queries because I think they have great potential to resurface information. I also try to keep things simple in my vault so I’m not that keen on using Dataview. Adding functionality into embedded queries would for sure make my life easier !
I like this attitude. Stay independent, keep clean and flexible, make your own solution (by using multiple already-existing feature sets), if possible, and so you understand better how your system/workflow works because you cobbled it together…
I see in search documentation a discussion of a “Collapse Results” toggle for search results. Is there a way to specify this in the the markdown for a page? Ie to specify this toggle in an embedded search?
As with others above the use-case I have in mind is when creating pages to index content on a topic – the expanded view is far too cluttered. (*Such “maps of content” are essential features of many knowledge-management methodologies)
It would be very helpful to have some options like sorting order be available for query blocks.
Use case or problem
I’ve been using query blocks to create, e.g., lists of meeting notes (with date in title) but for this it might be handy to be able to specify some more search settings for each individual query block. Otherwise for me the newest meeting note ends up in the bottom which is not very helpful.
Add a syntax to modify sorting order etc. using text commands
Instead of creating a new Feature Request I will append to this one because I think we want to create the same workflow. Like being able to get a list of document names that the query returns in a list view.
I really like the idea of embedded searches. My workflow consists of a lot of ‘Parent’ pages that link to small notes. Being able to have a big blok of all related pages (by tag) at the end would be really cool.
Being able to control the output would also be amazing! I would like to create a cloud or list of pages where a tag is mentioned like:
