Forte’s progressive summarisation advocates for highlighting notes, then underlining the key messages in the highlights, then bolding the essential takaways within the underlined ones.
Wouldn’t be cool to have a plugin that allows you to take a note marked up this way, and turn it into 3 notes:
- All underlines pulled out
- All bolds pulled out
It could be configurable so need not follow the highlight-underline-bold hierarchy. It also doesn’t need to extract them into new notes, it could just place them all in the same note under different headers
I really like Tiagos philosophy, but combining highlight with bold is excessive, in my experience.
However, I got used to use multicolored bold / Italic.
To get this features, install the community theme Dune from obsidians theme repo.
Check out its documentation
Also you can find a plug-in called extract highlights, but this one will extract only default highlights.
I also would support this plugin idea. I personally use italics and then highlighting (I assume that my Readwise imports of 10% of a book or article is my first round), so also support the idea of a customizable order/hierarchy.
My favorite way to use this would be a way to just hide the non-italicized/highlighted items, and only display items in the highest level of summarization (e.g. the highlights of the italics, then later only the italics + highlights later on.
