I’d also expect (most) edit operations to work as much as possible as one would expect from a traditional text editor (whenever possible/desirable, of course).
For example, maybe hitting ENTER should delete the partial text from both blocks accordingly (and place cursor in a new block between the existing blocks). Hitting DEL could delete the selected text, and merge the bottom block with the top one (maybe SHIFT+DEL could keep the blocks and just delete the text).
Good to know! Thanks for sharing this. Hopefully it’s a sign this is indeed a desirable feature for users.
As much as I’m excited about all the advanced features in Anytype, the most important thing for me will always be the writing/editing (an data entry) process. Since this is what I’ll be doing most of the time, it needs to be as quick and efficient as possible.
Agreed! The reason I think it took so long for Notion to implement this is that it’s a bit challenging to determine when “block behavior” or “text behavior” should take priority. So I believe you might be interested in this suggestion I had, which would be one way to achieve this selection behavior, and (in my view) overall better writing experience, without the devs having to try to guess/intuit user intent.
