What if we can see
only the highlighted text in a note? It will be great for reviewing large chunk of text, but without scrolling the parts that we did not consider important, thus keeping the gist of it. Great when you want to refresh your memory on a topic quickly.
For a better readability, it will be great to keep the headers (#, ##. ### etc)
and maybe get rid of the color of the highlight, displaying like simple text.
What do you think?
I can totally think of cases where that’d be useful for me, great idea !
Yeah, I already know that plug in, it kinda works but for me is too cumbersome
This will be a step further in practicality and readability.
Practicality because you don’t have to manually copy the highlight in a new note, but you can switch the view with a simple button in the same note.
Readability because it can preserve the main structure with titles, giving a context from where the highlight have been extracted.
…unfortunately i haven’t any programming skills so I’ll wait until someone considers this plugin worth making, but i think it can be great.
By the CSS snippet using hierarchical tags I showed on Reddit, I think you can do what you want.
You can use queries to list markers in a folder or in a note.
(Unfortunately, it’s in Japanese, so it may be hard to understand).

You can do this with an embedded search!
I use highlights and comments to mark parts of draft documents that need attention, and I’ve been wanting a plugin to list them in a sidebar overview where I could click them to go to the text (similar to the highlight/comment functionality in word processors, but hopefully less clunky).
The closest community plugin I found was
Extract Highlights, which copies a note’s highlights into the clipboard. I’d have to rerun it every time the highlights changed, and it doesn’t link to them, but I could…
The search results show some extra text around the highlights, but the highlights are highlighted.
