Hello everyone, I’m a student and I’d like to discuss using Obsidian for a specific purpose:
I have a large collection of PDFs containing exercises that I would like to manage efficiently using Obsidian. Here’s the workflow I’ve adopted:
I capture screenshots of the exercises using Zotero, with each exercise corresponding to one screenshot. This step enables me to have visual representations of the exercises.
I create a note in Obsidian and insert all the captured images into it.
To organize the images effectively, I employ tags. Tags allow me to classify the exercises based on their topics, and I often utilize multiple tags for better categorization.
Additionally, I utilize other tags to indicate the status of each exercise, such as “to do,” “done,” or “in progress.”
Why did I choose this approach?
Well, it provides a simple yet effective way to identify and access the exercises I need through the tag-based search function.
However, there is a drawback to this method. When I have multiple notes structured similarly to the above process, it can become confusing to manage the tags consistently. Specifically, in the left menu displaying tags, I see all the tags from all the notes, whereas I would prefer to view only the tags associated with the currently open note.
I would greatly appreciate any advice or suggestions from the community to address this issue.
