  • I'd like these features, too: A hastag pane (in alphabetical order) to easily filter zettels. Bear writer provides such a pane (even with hierarchical hashtags). When entering a "#" a pop-up list of hashtags which narrows down when entering charac…
  • Memory footprint is the only trait of Electron apps I'd complain. Some non-native user experience is of little concern to me, though.
  • Well, if the automatic advice of The Archive is "We recommend fixed-width fonts for editing", who am I then to violate that? But agreed, the fidelity is now better with Menlo and highlighted markup. I'll leave the non-fixed-width font. Still missin…
  • This is what I get with the "PrettyFunctional (Basic)" theme: Not very high fidelity. It's a bit better, though, when I switch to a dark theme. However: italics are not shown as italics, but just highlighted in some way. And an "embedded" rende…
  • Here's a view of the editor: The markdown is color coded and makes it easier on the eye. Compare that to (almost) the same zettel in The Archive: But more importantly I always get a "rendered" version of the note when I switch out of editing m…
  • Awesome tool! But I keep nvAlt around to sync my zettels with SimpeNote to be able to edit them on my iPhone.
  • Each paragraph might be zettel worthy ;-) But the paragraphs already come from zettels; I distill them from what's already in the zettelkasten. An article/book is a projection of zettelkasten content. For me that's primarily a unidirectional flow f…
  • I would not distinguish projects of different sizes. Small projects might grow large over time ;-) Whether I write a blog post or an article for a magazine or a book is irrelevant to me with regard to the source of my material: it all comes from th…
  • Sure no one should type JSON in any zettelkasten app. But zettelkasten apps could export their data as JSON upon request (or import from such JSON). I'm suggesting just a data exchange format. The could even be a converted taking "plain text" zett…
  • Thanks for the pointer to Auratikum. It looks like a tool for students who work project-oriented. As long as there is no export feature to get notes out of Auratikum in a standard format it sure is not fit for use as a life long zettelkasten. But…

  • I'm sorry to report: pasting from the clipboard does not work on my Mac. And dropping an image keeps it in place. That way I'd first have to move it to a proper location by hand. But also then the path used is absolute, not relative. Bummer
  • Yes, I can use the image markdown in nvALT - but it does not help me with image handling. I have to manually save images to a file and move the image to the zettelkasten by hand, instead of the tool picking the image from the clipboard (or a drag&am…
  • Thx for the hints! I like the distinction between note taking, verzetteln, and revision. Even though the other day I told my fiancee how different note taking/markup of texts ist from verzetteln, I did not realize what this means for where/when you…
  • I'd be most happy to first use "Zettel note" (instead of "smart note" or just "note"). It's doppeltgemoppelt, but also is a form of clarification: a certain type of note is meant. Like with "smart note" which refers only to specific kinds of notes, …
  • One more thought: maybe a compound like "slip note" could help? Or would that be doppeltgemoppelt?
  • Indeed, my current favorite note taking app is Bear Writer. Since I switched from Evernote and never looked back :-) But unfortunately I started using Bear for my general notes (e.g. meeting minutes, recipes) and now it's filled with this stuff and…
