We are currently planning to migrate to a different platform for the forum. We will announce this fact both here and on Twitter, once we have settled on a solution.

New Feature? Implementing a "desk-mode" in Zettlr to merge Zettelkasten-notes

Like in other threads mentioned using the Zettelkasten-method is making one note for one thougt and merging the to a "string of thoughts". So you need a way to put your notes in a structured manner together.

In the classic Zettelkasten-method you can imagine this process by dumping your box of notes (your Zettelkasten) on your desk, picking the notes you want and (re-) align them, so you get an arranged structure of your thoughts from which you can make an article, book-chapter or something else.

Maybe this could be solved by implementing a desk-mode which allows you to drag'n'drop the content of a note from the sidebar into a new note instead making a link. The result of this process will be an other .md - file which you can now easily complete to an readable text to export in in LaTex for example.

    There is a discussion bout having an include feature in https://github.com/Zettlr/Zettlr/issues/1162.

    This is different copy-mode idea, it would not suit me, but I think it would suit many others. The base doc retains its YAML header, but if YMAL or link information were made into a comment, that would bridge the two different methods, a hide-comments feature, or reduce to a standard icon (collapse).

    The best place to put you suggestion is in the features section of https://github.com/Zettlr/Zettlr/issues .

  • This might be accomplished best with a separate app. A corkboard/outliner that uses .md files would be great. So far, MDyna is the closest I've found.
