I really like Obsidian, I just discovered it a week ago, but for me its a big weakness that I cannot easily export my notes as pdf.
When I do, the layout of my notes is completly destroyed, since it cant “translate” many things such as my highlights or the Backlinks.
I dont have any tech background whatsoever (so pls go easy on me :')) and am now in a dilemma situation which app to use for my university notes.
Notion’s interface is more compact in my opinion, good to track things (or at least easier for me than with Obsidian), and i can export pdfs, for example in order to share my notes or print them.
Obsidian offers the for me very interesting and unique feature of creating my own encyclopedia and it’s less distracting than Notion and more focused on the actual content than aesthetics.
Now that I will attend university in a week I’d appreciate to know whether other people share this problem and what ways you found of solving it.
I imagine it would be awesome if directly from the start of my academic career I’d have begun creating my “virtual brain”, it might come in very handy in future!
That’s why I haven’t given up the wish to continue using Obsidian.
The only solution I thought of myself until now is that I in class write things down in Notion, and after class copy them to Obsidian and add the Backlinks etc.
But is this really the best way?
It would be highly appreciated to know your opinions and experiences!
