Cornell Note-Taking System in Obsidian

For a long time, I have wanted to apply Cornell Notes in Obsidian, especially in my long-form writing research. I started using callouts to basically map the Cornell Notes methodology and it works surprisingly well!

Documented the process here:

How is the page layout achieved? Is the left a column or is it a table? The callout is the summary type box at the top?

It is a callout that floats and aligns in the proper direction. It is nothing fancy, just a reliable way to create the cue affect.
