Use case or problem
I use Obsidian to take school notes, write essays and so on, and I find myself needing to add frequent footnotes. Currently, to add a new footnote, I need to:
- scroll to the bottom to check how many footnotes I already have
[^n]in the body of the note, where n is the next number
- move to the end of the note, type
[^n]again, and then add my citation.
It would be convenient to have a shortcut to automate these steps. In particular, I envision that the shortcut would:
- using the smallest natural number
nthat has not yet been used for a footnote, add
[^n]at the insertion point
[^n]to the end of the note, and move the insertion point there.
Since I began using it a few months ago, I’ve found Obsidian to be an incredibly useful tool. Thank you to those who are working to make it even better!
