I’m wondering how best to do this in Tinderbox. While working on my notes - say during a meeting - I often jot down ideas that come to my mind for further processing and reflection later. The $Text of example
Note1 might look like this:
Meeting text paragraph 1
Meeting text paragraph 2
An image or illustration
IdeaX: New idea to improve the world
Some more meeting text
IdeaX: another brilliant idea to explore later
Yet some more meeting text
Similarly I could have ideas prefixed by IdeaX in Notes 2, 3 and 4. I can easily retrieve those notes that have ideas with the test $Text.contains(“IdeaX”).
However what I would like is a dashboard-like note with the text of all my ideas extracted from a group of notes. These should then collected in the $Text field of that dashboard (even better with a date and link to the original note). In this way I have an instant overview of ideas rather than scroll through the sometimes longish text of the original notes. For instance the $Text field of the dashboard should show something like
New idea to improve the world
another brilliant idea to explore later
some idea from Note 2
some idea from Note 3
as a minimum solution. Even better would be
date1: New idea to improve the world (URL link to Note 1)
date 1: another brilliant idea to explore later (URL link to Note 1)
date 2: some idea from Note 2 (URL link to Note 2)
date 3: some idea from Note 3 (URL link to Note 3)
to follow up with the original note and know when it was added.
I’m afraid that here I hit my limits in terms of TB. There is not easy way to extract paragraphs (with \n at the end) based on a condition.
