Dear all obsidianers,
As a historian and teacher, I use Obsidian both for my research and to design my courses. Dataview is an extremely useful tool for avoiding getting lost in a vault that is now approaching 10,000 notes, 1,500 bibliographical reference notes and a few other things.
In particular, I’m looking to use Dataview to track down notes on a subject that haven’t yet been used in a file.
Let me explain. With the increase in the number of notes (which are all atomic), writing for me consists of creating a draft in Obsidian using embed files (![[File name]]).
In this type of note I’d like to have a way of having Dataview identify notes that are not yet used in the note.
For example :
- In the file entitled « Apples »
- Have a table or list generated by Dataview of all the files in the Vault which contain the link to [[Apples]] in the Vault,
- Which are not yet listed in the “Apples” file
(To integrate them if I need it).
I’ve looked myself, but my literary skills are too meagre to do it.
Does anyone have any ideas?
