Agree. I’ve suggested before (link below) that everything should be an object - this would include paragraphs/blocks within a “page”, and even Relations.

I don’t think I mention Titles, but I also think they should be an Object as any other, and therefore capable of containing inline references (and anything else an Object/Block can contain).

This is how RemNote does it, and it’s extremely powerful and elegant.

Haven’t seen your feature request. The everything is an object approach would be very nice. I assume that adding an inline object to the title would be an interim step towards this goal.

I would be very curious to see what the Anytype team thinks of this discussion. I very much agree that everything should be an Object, including titles (= object name?) and descriptions.

+1 to this too, probably not the best workflow but adding links to the title of a task can be useful

There is two things to say here from my side.

  1. Everything is an object is a nice metaphor but to threat title as an object is a hyperbolization for my taste. Everything inside the canvas is a block for now, even a relation or link to another object.
  2. As far as I understand the original request is to add possibility to mention in the title of page. Am I right?

Another way to see this is that the Title is just a block like any other, parent to all blocks within it.

Have you guys checked out RemNote? It does this very well. The result is a structure that on the surface functions like a traditional page-based system for the casual user, but with enormous potential for granularity and more advanced applications for the more adventurous users.

I appreciate that AT has its own thing going on, of course. Just food for thought!

Correct, the request is about mentioning other objects within the title.

Both are in our R&D already, thanks for rising the priority for this.
Also we are playing with this ideas of merging page and block based experiences :smiling_imp:
