When creating certain blocks, the need for an additional click to activate the block before being able to edit the block gets in the way of the writing flow.
Describe the solution you’d like
All blocks should get focus (i.e. the cursor should be active in the block) directly after creating the block. This is already the case for:
- Text blocks
- List blocks
- Code snippet
But this should also be the case for:
- Bookmarks (when creating a bookmark, ideally the content of the clipboard should be pasted automatically when containing a URL)
- LaTeX (also here it might be possible to parse the clipboard contents to find out whether any LaTeX content is present so it can be pasted automatically after creation of the block)
- Relations (adding content to a Relation block requires you to click inside the Relation content part of the block. I’m happy that subsequent entries can be added immediately after confirming the first object with the Return key, for example when adding multiple tags).
This could also be setup for:
- File/picture/pdf/audio/video blocks (sometimes you might want to add a placeholder for a file, but I think for most of the times you’d want to add/attach a file immediately, so an “upload file” dialog could be shown directly after creating the block. The other probably often used method to get this kind of content onto the canvas is by drag-and-drop, which should not require the creation of a block in advance)
Describe alternatives you’ve considered
Just keep clicking, just keep clicking
I was quite sure I saw a similar topic on the forum already for bookmark blocks already, but I could not find it back… (I guess I should have bookmarked it )
