When you highlight a word or set of words (concept) within a block and right click to convert to an object, it converts the entire block into an object instead of just the selected text. Not being able to do this basically ruins the function of blocks and linking.
HOW TO REPRODUCE IT
Open a page
Write a sentence Eg. “Elon Musk is the CEO of Tesla”
Highlight Elon Musk
Right Click and click convert into object (Human)
Elon Musk does not turn into an object, but the whole block, “Elon Musk is the CEO of Tesla” becomes the human object.
THE EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
If I highlight “Elon Musk”, he should become his own object. Same if I highlight “Tesla” I should be able to make it an object.
That thread is a bit of mess . It’s several conversations going on at once, each describing something slightly different. Link to Object is distinct functionality from Turn into Object, although @gaszdf is demonstrating precisely the same thing as referenced above.
When i’m writing an article, frequently i find myself in the following position, when i started building my Body of Knowledge/Second Brain. Example:
“Eleanor Rosch: uma das eminentes psicólogas cognitivas do nosso tempo e professora do Departamento de Psicologia da University of California em Berkeley. Autora de The Embodied Mind, livro que escreveu com Francisco Varela e Evan Thompson.”
I need that Eleanor Rosch, Francisco Varela and Evan Thompson be transformed in a Human Type Object, for further elaboration and The Embodied Mind a Book Type Object, also for further detailed writing.
Nowadays, i’m only able to create manually the new object. Would be very useful to Create It “in a second” as possible in Obsidian, for example, to complete the information in a second moment, not stopping the flow of writing.
