I realize I’ve been “unfaithful” to markdown the last couple of years. The editors I have been using (mostly Ulysses) does not process Markdown “by-the-book” — which means I’ve gotten some unreliable habits.
The worst one, is that I take notes in unordered lists, and separate them with line breaks to make it pretty and readable. But this obviously does not work in Obsidian; adding linebreaks between lists completely breaks the parsing in preview/export. This has never happened before.
I love taking quick notes like this as it looks good to me (readable; lots of whitespace etc) and forces me to write short, concise sentences that I can return to and flesh out later. But this won’t work anymore, given Obsidians “faithfulness” to Markdown parsing.
So… I’d like to fix my note-taking-technique to be in harmony with Obsidian/markdown, but am a little lost. Changing habits that have been in use for several years is hard and kills motivation. So I guess what I’m asking here is for some general, technical tips on note taking within the Markdown framework. Do I just start writing in paragraph-blocks with regular line breaks? What if I want to break down a topic into pieces (like with list-leves/indents). Use headers, perhaps?
Any help appreciated, be it quick responses or links to articles/videos on the topic. Only “requirement” is that it relates to writing well with Markdown and Obsidian.
