I’ve spent quite a long time setting up Obsidian so I can quickly relate my notes from literature and insert formatted citations.
So far my workflow starts from Zotero, where I export my PDF notes using
mdnotes plugin into Obsidian. Then I have an outline note where I build my main text and insert my PDF’s notes as embedded links.
I set up obsidian’s
pandoc plugins so I can insert “@citekey” that eventually get translated into short (i.e. " some text (author et al., year)") and full citations (i.e. “Authors, year. Title of the article/document. Other details”) at the end of the document.
However I cannot find a way to insert the content of my embedded links so they are included when I export them into a .docx file.
The way I see it is (1) I copy the specific content of my embedded link into the main note (automatically if possible) and then export it into a docx file with pandoc. Or (2) add a specific argument to pandoc so it can read the embedded link and include its content in the final docx file.
I attach some pictures so you can imagine what I mean.
This is the Edit view of an Outline note:
When seen in Preview mode you can see the specific content of the “some_note_paragraph” note:
When I export the outline note using pandoc plugin it won’t read the content (no matter of the option set in “Internal link processing”) and I would obtain something like this:
And I would like to get something like this instead
Please let me know if you know of any solution. I would like to keep using Pandoc for exporting to .docx since I works pretty well for adding references.
Thanks in advance!
