Some dubts and comparison with other programs
I am still considering which program to use for Zettelkasten: Zettelkasten-3, Zettlr or The Archive.
I like Z-3 *VERY* much, but it worries me that the last update is of 2015, so I assume that the developer no longer mantains it, and it would be difficult to bring my data from the xml files it uses to those of another program, should Z-3 ceases to work due to changes in the operating system in the future.
I like Zettlr very much too, I love the presentation mode and the seamless integration with Zotero through json.
I have some dubts though I'd like to sort out before I jump with both feet on any of those apps.
- If I make a search, is it possible to put all the notes selected by the search inside a project in one go, selecting all of them at the same time and then moving them to the project or the directory? In this way I could mimic the Outline/Desktop feature of Z-3 by opening the notes in the project from outside the application (with any text editor) in different windows and arranging it freely. But if I have to move one note at a time to the project it could be cumbersome, I suppose.
- Again, If I have a selection of notes, let it be the notes of a directory or the result of a search, is it possible to freely order them? As far as I can see, the notes are only displayed in alphabetical order.
- Also, some users say that Z-3 gets very slow searching when you get 1000+ notes. How about Zettlr? What's your experience? Has anybody used Zettlr with 1000+ notes and performed searches?
