Best way to create new notes from within a larger note
When I'm writing, I usually start typing in a "scratchpad" document, then, as groupings become more obvious, I add headings, and then, as a section gets longer, I move a block of text to a new document, leaving only the heading and a link in the parent document.
I'm sure this is a very common way of working, and surely how TheArchive is designed to work.
But what's the best way to take a group of paragraphs and a heading, and replace them with concise link?
Right now, I follow these steps.
(1) add a timestamp before the heading
(2) make a second copy of the timestamp+heading
(3) Put double brackets around the heading to create a link
(4) Select and Cut the lower heading and the paragraphs that follow
(5) Click on the link to follow it
(6) Hit Enter to create the new document
(7) Hit Paste to put the text in.
It works, but I'm wondering if there's a faster approach built into TheArchive, and what methods work to streamline the creation of child documents. Mine seems to take more steps than I would expect, and the Cut operation makes it a bit precarious. A lot of the time, I miss step 7 and paste the text into the search bar. I also worry that I might make a second Copy operation and lose my cut text.
Is there a way to click on a link and force the creation of a new document, rather than having to search for a nonexistent document then hit Enter to create it?
Is there a safer way to move a block of text into a new document, rather than cut, change documents, paste?
