  • I just installed Sublime-Zk. Thanks, it seems super-useful!

    But it was a long time since I last used SublimeText, and I've run into one problem I can't solve and doesn't know if it's related to your script or to some settings in SublimeText: When I press Shift-Enter to create a new note or any other shortcut with Enter, all that happens is that there is a new line created in the selected note.

    What I'm doing wrong?

    I hadn't enabled Syntax Highlightning. :)

    If you like, you can try SublimelessZk, which is a bit simpler to use. It has not been put onto the tools page here but it has its own thread here. You can download it from my github.

    Sorry no link, I am on my mobile, but I'm sure you'll find it...

    Here is the link to the forum thread and here is the GitHub link to Sublimeless_ZK ; check it out if you like.

    Thanks! Are there any differences in functionality between the two? Which one, if any, are you most actively working on?

    There are differences. I am most actively (currently taking a break but...) working on Sublimeless_ZK. I have more freedom there.

    The Sublimetext version can show inline images which the other one cannot at the moment. SublimeText has more flexible layouts. But I find the Sublime-less version much more pleasant to work with, especially since links can be activated by a simple click as opposed to ctrl+enter or alt+click. Some features are only available in the sublimeless version, most notably more sophisticated saved searches, I think. Also, a few bug fixes regarding section auto numbering have not yet been backported to the SublimeText version (which is not a concern if you don't use that feature). The BIB file parser can convert LaTeX umlauts and special symbols and characters so they are displayed correctly in the insert citation window. (though it is super slow, so it is configurable).

    If you like, just give it a try. You can work with both in parallel or switch from one to the other, etc. Then select what works best for you. Oh, another big one for some: sublimeless does not do syntax coloring for source code in code blocks. I found this to be a minor issue eventhough I frequently paste code into my notes.

    I would suggest to try and build your own opinion, stick to what works best for your use cases. :smile:

    @toolboxen just a quick question if you don't mind: a fellow Windows SublimeText user reported that [[ doesn't work for him.

    We traced it back to:

    command: insert_snippet {"contents": "[$0]"}
    

    in the console.

    I have the same problem, what is the solution?

    Hi everyone,

    I am new here and new to the Zettelkasten method. I have spent the last few days reading as much as I could to make a decision about which software to use. I decided on SublimeText with @Rene plug-in. I was super excited, but some things seem to not work.

    1) I have the same problem as @Otto and @toolboxen report above. When I type [[ I get [[], and nothing else.

    2) When I select a text and press shift+enter to create a new note from the selected text, I do get a new note, but in the note in which the text was selected it now only shows e.g. [[201810271148]], while the string I had selected is gone.

    I'm on Windows 10. Hoping to hear what the solution might be. Thanks! :smile:

    You can edit thee file "Default (Windows).sublime-keymap" and add a new combination for zk_get_wiki_link.
    Example: { "keys": ["'", "'"], "command": "zk_get_wiki_link"},

  • Dear Rene,

    first thank you so much for implementing this incredible add-on. I came over from ZKN3: zettelkasten.danielluedecke.de which is also a great tool. But as I felt a little looked-in and I want to work mainly with the keyboard, I love your "Sublime ZK"!

    There would be one feature, which would be a great extension of functionality - if I could maintain some kind of "tree" of my notes. I use this in ZKN3 to read and browse my notes. I am thinking of something rather simple:

    • create .tree_results.zkr with two areas: "Tree" and "Notes not in Tree"
    • scan directory and add all notes not being under "Tree" at the end under "Notes not in Tree"
    • the user can then copy and paste them in the "Tree" area as he wishes and do the layout
    • add a shortcut to refresh Tree similar as all notes

    So thank you again for the great tool!
    (If there is a easy way to contribute with money, I would do so!)

    Kindest regards,
    tasna

  • Hi Rene,

    I know you've moved on to develop a standalone software tool, but I was wondering if you'd be willing to continue dev. on the sublime plugin? Namely, I was hoping to be able to change the order of the date-time stamp ID in the file naming so that in folders the files will be organized by name, not just by date-time ID.

    I ask because I'm doing research with a number of colleagues and we are going to share a single zettel repository -- being forced to name files with date-time causes some confusion in organizing files in a human-readable/searchable way. We're not 100% zettel as you can see. It would be helpful for us to use your plugin (and would happily donate some money to help dev.) but the naming convention of new files is a challenge for us.

    I hacked your sublime.py file and was able to change the naming order, but then a few other things broke -- so I figured worth asking you first before I try and solve this myself.

    Best, David

  • Hi guys - new to the forum and Zettelkasten in general.
    I've implemented sublime_zk and its been quite a learning curve. I seem to have everything ironed out - except searches...

    Searching by a tag by selecting a tag & hitting [ctrl] [enter] - works fine. However searching all tags by using [#][!] - I get no search results...

    I'd love to iron this out because I think I'm then ready to run!

    Thanks for any help
    Rob
