I would like to use graph to show and link notes within various sets. As in, I would like to be able to have the ability to ostensibly switch between various sets of links within a vault’s notes.
Although I am not married to this exact approach, I think it clarifies the idea. You could have the graph view only show the links that are within a header name that is a link with a certain symbol in its name.
So for example, you could have a note named “Special Group”. And you could have a bunch of notes that contain a header name with a link to Special Group.
And when you would want to begin filtering the graph, and perhaps also the notes in preview mode, to just show connections and content that is within the Special Group header, you could just open the Special Group Note and add a unique symbol or sequence of characters at the beginning of the note name. This could either apply to all sub headers or not depending on a toggle in settings.
Of course, there could be more powerful and user friendly implementations that could piggyback on tags or allow for more surgical selections of regions of notes to specify, perhaps allowing for overlapping of multiple sets within notes. But with my approach, I am trying to take cues from what I have learned from Markdown and the way Obsidian operates.
By having a pane dedicated to showing a real-time search of notes with that special trigger symbol/symbols, you could easily toggle out of this mode by removing those symbols.
I realize this may be more in the plugin arena, but feel this could be core to sidestepping the multiple vault conundrum, so feature seems like my best guess.
Simultaneously opening multiple copied versions of the same vaults is one option.
When searching, I found Toggle Links but that differs in that it focuses on hiding links inside note that may have a distracting number of links within.
Thanks for your patience. I apologize for getting so detailed when I am sure the idea could have been explained much more succinctly. Typing request from a phone ironically tends to do this to me. It probably has something to do with not being able to take an overview as I am typing. Too bad I use this forum exclusively from my phone, but that may change with this realization.
