The problem is that Notion exporting toggles as lists into markdown.

And the format is 100% equal to lists, so there is no way to interpret it as toggles.

@vova_ermolaev Okay😢

Maybe you could add an option when importing to convert lists in to toggles?

@Isak Then bulleted lists would be converted to toggle lists as well. There is nothing Anytype can do here.

We can try to parse the Notion’s HTML export because they use different tags for lists and toggles. So it will not require any manual actions.

I’ve added this to import feature enhancement.
