Thanks Bernard-o. This is a start. I am worried about going down the path of agents because over time, I already use a lot of agents and depending how large the documents get, I want to avoid sluggishness. Therefore, I was hoping to use an edict with a collect_if operator. Just to get a list that I could see in $Text.
For me, this recently used list can be applied to not only my recent notes, but also recent $Tags, but for now just getting a list of my top 10-15 notes would be helpful.
My issue, with using collect_if or collect or find(), besides my inexperience with using them is how do I limit the result to the top 10 or 15. I do not see where there is an option to specify how many values you want. Sort of stuck here.
Here is a wonderful thread from the past that hints at this: Common Tasks: How can I be sure this note will show up later when it's valuable?
In there you will see a wonderful quote from MarkB…
A recently used list is my initial stab at “informational gardening”. Something I have tried in the past, but have not been very good at over time. At least by revisiting recent notes, I can somewhat understand what my context was when I last opened the document. For some it might be days, but others it might be weeks to months. I think of these notes as contextual breadcrumbs.
