I switch to obsidian from MindManager and OmniOutliner, where I heavily use outlining, mostly to easily re-arrange larger portions of text.
IMHO, the best from UX perspective solutions on the market are OmniOutliner (https://www.omnigroup.com/omnioutliner/) and Dynalist. They have plenty of features, but I think just two-three of them would make Obsidian a dream note taking app on the market :).
I have the following suggestions:
- Enable drag and drop a whole folded section up and down (at the moment “swap line up/down” swaps only the one line, leaving “siblings” intact). It would be good to have some visual clue for (hook?) showing the possibility of moving a whole line (with siblings) > see Omni Outliner.
- position a folding (triangle) mark just by the beginning of folded line (now they are always on the left margin), and add a light vertical line marking the folded fragment of text) > see Dynalist.
These are mainly UX features, but would make Obsidian a really killing app for someone used to work with large portions of text by outlining.
