I have a bunch of old notes from when I used the Breadcrumbs plugin (I no longer do). These have a line in the frontmatter like this:
--- parent: [[some note]] ---
Which, AFAIK, is invalid YAML, but it did do the trick for a while. But with the new properties display, these show up as an unknown datatype & are converted to
[["some note"]]. I’m unable to edit them in any way. I can’t change the type to “text” and I can’t edit the value without switching the display to raw.
I’m going through and switching these
parent lines to
categories and adding links to other notes. Sometimes “categories” is shown as a suggestion when editing in the property display, but 9 times out of 10, it won’t suggest that and I don’t know why.
While in raw mode, I (mistakenly) edited some notes like such:
--- categories: "[[Some note]]", "[[Some other MOC]]" ---
I know this was incorrect. But when I switch back to properties display, that line disappears. Additionally, that note no longer shows up in the properties display (sidebar) nor returns in the new property search syntax. I don’t actually know how to search for a note like this – since it doesn’t appear that you can do a plaintext search that includes the frontmatter.
