WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND
Currently dragging and moving a block (with the three dot button) to another object allows users to relocate block to later object, I recommend allowing users to create link and/or embed with the same action under lock mode to enrich lock mode function and support creation of links.
Paired with workable window size, users can use a finished note to support creating a different note. Just a left to right move from one object to another could a link/reference. This improves workflow and efficiency.
HOW COULD IT BE DONE
Detect lock mode or ‘edit’ mode.
IF edit, current relocate action.
IF lock, enable link action instead of relocation.
Note: Currently it is not possible to link blocks. So if the block is not currently a linked object, implementation would require an automatic creation of object (note type) upon detecting the secondary location or a link action. It would be nice to have a ‘source’ relation to the created object, indicating permanent / pre-determined location.
REAL WORLD USE CASES
Good for research.
Good for reusing materials. (e.g. journaling, case notes, reports, projects)
Good for revision. (maintaining object/block’s original state)
Simulate moving sticky note.
Together with referencing everything and everything as blocks features, it is possible to link everything.
The part of automatic object creation of this request gives an alternative to link everything without changing the current object linking concept (without changing to block linking), but this could still make workflow smoother if everything as blocks feature is implemented.
ADDITIONAL CONTEXT / SOME IMPLEMENTATIONS IN OTHER APPS
Obsidian Drag-n-Drop for blocks plugin.
LiquidText and flexcil are note-taking apps that offers drag and link in context, maintaining its link to original source (or objects in Anytype language). So this feature could also polish handwritten notes feature.
