Hey there. I’m having trouble adding the little metadata table. Typically, you would type — and another — and between them write in some headers, like “tags:” but it isn’t working for me - no table appears.
If anyone knows why that’s not occurring for me, please help out.
Also, “showing up as a table”. Do you have a screenshot of someone else’s setup you’re trying to copy? I don’t think it shows up as a table by default. You are likely seeing someone using a community plugin?
Not sure if the above images have come out correctly but that’s what I’m trying to mimic, to have that table at the top of my documents. (I don’t have a screenshot of their screen as it’s a YouTube video, sorry.)
I’m on a PC, not using any plugins or anything like that - it’s essentially a fresh install.
The start of you note should look exactly like the block below:
Aliases: Unity, Unity Game Engine
You’re not supposed to have the triple backticks at the head of the file. That will produce a code block, like the one above here. It’s also important that there is nothing else before the first line of ---.
In addition you might need to verify that showing of the frontmatter is enabled, see Settings > Editor > Show frontmatter, and enable if disabled.
Actually, one more thing. It seems in those screenshots (the video) that the document isn’t using a title for the document at the top in big, bold text. Is there a setting for this? My documents always need a heading at the top.
