HELP! Side Peek/Default Preferences

I started using Anytype about 2 weeks ago and I have absolutely fallen in love with it. It does everything that other platforms I’ve used in the past do. However, there are a few things that I haven’t been able to figure out and I will be truly distraught if they are not possible.

  1. Is there an option to open an object (page, note, task) in a side peek window or off to the side? Currently, when I click on an object, it opens front and center, which is not always preferred. In Notion, you can open a page with a side peek, but I haven’t found out how to do it on Anytype yet. I sometimes like to take a note while looking at a project page.

***It would also be great if there was a way to set a default preference to always open objects in a side peek, rather than having to choose each time. Additionally, it would be helpful to have more default preferences in general, such as setting the layout to 100% Full Width.

  1. On my dashboard, if I click into a project I’m working on and then click on an object (note, page, task, etc.), once I’m done with that object, I’m not able to go back to the project screen. Instead, it takes me back to the dashboard. Is there a way around this?

  2. Is there a plan in the future for Anytype to partner with zapier for integrations?

Not yet, but see this feature request and it’s linked requests:

Feel free to either upvote the ones that match your request best, or write your own topic in the feature request category if you feel your request is different and deserves its own topic :).

Right now, any object you open, opens in modal view by default and this cannot be changed at this time. In order for the history (back and forward navigation) to work properly, you need to open the object as full object everytime it opens an object in modal view.

Not with Zapier specifically, but the API will be released at some point, allowing integrations with 3rd party apps and services. See this item on the roadmap:

The best workaround as of now is to use Ctrl + left click to open an object in a new window.
