Edit transcluded (embedded) notes (blocks) in place (likely requires WYSWYG first)

yes, very need it


+1 for this

I am considering switching out to logsec since the more my vault grows the more cumbersome having to go to multiple notes to edit embeds becomes


Me too. I’ll probably stick it out for this since Logseq lacks WYSIWYG, vim, many plugins, and I’m unsure about outliners in general. But this feature alone is pretty important so I keep my eyes open for others.


+1, because of a better workflow.


+1 as well

I’m curious about the feasibility of this idea. Does someone with greater technical knowledge of the underlying architecture of Obsidian know for certain a viable path to making this feature possible that doesn’t involve the constantly broken make.md developer’s approach?

It would be great to have a better idea of whether we should wait this out or seek alternative solutions (e.g. gather the community to start developing our own working plugin).

It’s interesting that we have no heard from the Obsidian devs about editing embeds in place. I wonder what their thoughts on this is.

Can’t speak to the technical feasibility, but it is an Obsidian team member who seems to have created this topic and it is tagged valuable which is always a good sign.


I was reading a comment thread today about Obsidian’s chinese competitor, Siyuan:

"Siyuan has some interesting out-of-the box features like “every block has unique ID and can be referenced from anywhere“, “you have some degree of control on nesting and formatting blocks”, and “you can write SQL queries for blocks in notes”

I wonder if that could be of use in conceptualizing the approach for Obsidian.
