  • No, that's too far in the future to make an estimate. Just watch the updates
  • I guess one could make the PAT_LINK into an optional argument when running the program: ... -i --identifier Pattern used to find links to other notes. Default: [[(\d+)]] This would open up support for Wikipedia-style links where the title is …
  • Cannot stress this enough, I think @gescho is spot on with the emphasis of splitting notes for personal association networks and publishing, and all the good stuff that stems from it!

  • It should be where this is pointing to: pip list -v | grep zkviz I'd like to suggest downloading a ZIP from GitHub (Or git clone if that's your schtick), then calling pip install -e . in the resulting dir to use a local "development" copy th…
  • I proposed a fix in a pull request: https://github.com/Zettelkasten-Method/zkviz/pull/3 For those of you at home wanting to follow along, just change line 19 according to my diff to this: PAT_ZK_ID = re.compile(r'^(?P\d+)\s(.*)\.(?!=\.).*$') …
  • Yes, it's part of the upcoming scriptability milestone!
  • @sjhogerzeil Sure! I'm experimenting with Markdown parser improvements on the side and ship them with 1.x updates, but the issue you describe could persist until I give the parser my full attention. I work on the features on the roadmap in their res…
  • I never heard of this before, but I'm intrigued In hindsight, it's no surprise that of all humans beings it had to be Adler to write a book called "Syntopicon".

  • You're not missing anything: We deliberately don't show file metadata because it's not very reliable in all cases and focus on file name and file content instead. Of course now I wonder: Why do you ask? / What do you want it for?
  • Sounds sensible to me. Your example of Human Behavior [[201812061423]] is driven by Mental Models [[201812061423]], which are expressed in Sense Memories [[201812061423]] ... likely won't make sense if "Human Behavior" is not enclosed …
  • Welcome! It'd be super interesting to have you share your experience about the "hard" sciences and the Zettelkasten Method with us some day! There must be a way to make it work
  • This is tied to the Markdown highlighter, and I'll get to tidying up lists eventually
  • Depends on what you got If you, like the Professors at Bielefeld University, have Work docs full of lists, then grab yourself a doc-to-Markdown converter and plain-text-ify your stuff. Throw it into your archive. Maybe add a tag like #_imported …
  • Initially, I used incrementing counters for parts of the ID, too. Because the tooling was so bad, I had to manually create the ID. Got on my nerves rather quickly, so I resorted to an always-unique timestamp.
  • Can you send me the more recent crash reports? Should be stored in Console.app > User Reports (you can email from there directly)
  • This is especially awkward since I rely on the macOS link detection stuff I'll investigate! Thanks for the great work uncovering this!
  • Can you test clicking on different parts of the link? I wonder if the domain after the @ is treated as a web link overwriting the existing email link at that location. I cannot reproduce the link opening in Safari at all at the moment. Could you sha…
  • The short answer: No, you don't need to. The long answer: File extensions are used by macOS to determine which default app to open the file with when you run the open command in the Terminal or double-click the file in Finder. So if you have e.g.…
  • Good you split this off, deleted the duplicate from https://forum.zettelkasten.de/discussion/95/techniques-pdf-annotation to avoid confusion * MMD is a superset of Markdown, so yes Note headers are now not MMD metadata blocks anymore but simpl…
  • +1 here https://forum.zettelkasten.de/discussion/584/feature-request-copy-only-uid
  • Will be working on it https://forum.zettelkasten.de/discussion/232/request-copy-link-containing-zettel-id-only?new=1 Closing this so we can stick to the older discussion.
  • @macosxguru @Vinho If you don't want to buy a comfortable app, there's always the built-in core tool called "Folder Actions Setup". (Look for the phrase in Spotlight. It's located in /System/Library/CoreServices/Applications.) Edit: turns out you…

  • Regarding Kleist: There's a summary for reference on German and French Wikipedia: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Über_die_allmähliche_Verfertigung_der_Gedanken_beim_Reden @Will: Originally, I went overboard on this. I tried to treat notes as immut…
  • To clarify, it does resort at the moment (in my tests) when no search is active. It is indeed not re-sorting as long as a filtered view of the archive is shown. Working on that now.
  • I never used this in Emacs because Ctrl-Space is bound to launch Quicksilver and I'm not inclined to give up that shortcut anytime soon I experimented with the underlying set-mark-command. It seems this essentially replicates holding down the shift…
  • We don't plan to support any other highlighting syntax, because Markdown is great for general-purpose note-taking already. It does have some cool features for writing, like optional block titles (for code blocks, blockquotes, tables, ...). But I'…
  • Not yet implemented, but it's on my task list! Mouseless control ftw
  • The browser-like navigation still results in weird user experience cases: e.g. navigating back to a note that got deleted in the meantime will show an error dialog because the note couldn't be found. That's not so great. I want to make this better b…
