One of the great things about Obsidian is that it lets you write stream-of-consciousness and put almost anything almost anywhere.
One way I use that is to intersperse to-dos in my writing, just like I used to do in paper journals. Like so:
Here’s some writing I’m doing. I’m having some great thoughts! I’m also
- [ ] Oh, crap, that reminds me; I need to do this thing! Well, luckily I can write a to-do right here, and remember to do it later!
enjoying using Obsidian.
What’s great about this is that I don’t have to switch to another app and lose my train of thought. What’s not great is that this Task now stands out like a sore thumb, interfering with reading what I wrote.
I suppose I could cut and paste the tasks elsewhere later, but let’s be honest—I won’t. And frankly don’t want to.
What I do want is to be able to shrink down the task to a little thumbnail—maybe like
- [ ]…, where I can click on the
… to reveal the actual text of the task.
Is there any way to do anything like this? With CSS snippets, or anything?
