In practice, this would be as if Objects and Sets would exist as Blocks within an Object (somewhat like Relations currently are). Note how this would essentially mean that [everything is a “block”](Everything is a... Block?) (or any other name).
This has been mentioned in a few places, however it doesn’t seem to exist as a feature request yet.
If this is a separate feature request from “everything is a block” then it seems essentially to be a duplicate of “In-line sets”. The terminology is a bit vague, open to interpretation. “In-line” in this context simple means “interleaved with other contents that is not part of the set”.
If you agree I’ll merge this request over to the existing In-line sets request.
Sets are just one of the things I’d like to be able to nest within Objects. I want to be able to nest other Objects as well. So to me this post is different (broader) to the one about Sets.
Yes, this FR is very similar to my “Everything is a Block” post. But since I presented that as a question, and combined it with a broader structural change suggestion, someone changed it from a FR to a Discussion. I also made the mistake of mixing 2 suggestions in 1 post. So I created this more specific FR, focusing on the nesting feature.
Let me know if this makes sense. Otherwise I can try explaining it some other way!
Sorry for the delayed reply, best to just flag things for general moderator/admin notice (flag button) in the future, that way any staff member will see it.
I suppose the key question is whether your original request here is really about “outlining”, specifically. The way I read the original request felt related bit a bit more broad and powerful. To me an “outliner” is a pretty specific and simple concept, but it gets conflated or mixed with some other related but not necessarily intrinsically dependent concepts, such as transclusion. Think of a classic outliner like Dynalist and perhaps you see what I would have in mind.
I think making a definition of what a “basic outliner” would be, in a separate feature request, is probably useful. While this one can exist to contemplate the broader case of “nesting”, i.e. object parentage. They would be complementary functionality but not necessarily dependent on each other for implementation.
Just jumping in to say that this would be such a game changer. Use case would be: I keep track of tasks for several companies/projects as I’m a project manager. So ideally, I’d like to be able to nest a set inside a company page where I can show the list of tasks and projects and be able to sort them either as a List, Board, Gallery, or Table (just like a normal Set). Is this something doable?
Hello everyone Inline sets is highly requested feature. We are refactoring our data layer to make it possible currently.
About more broader concept - definitely love it and we have similar ideas, its just too hard to implement in a current state of product, but we looking to implement it in the future
