I wish to use Anytype as my main source of notes. Often, the notes became quite lengthy. As the note becomes lengthier, I really like this specific feature that a note-taking app called NimbusNote has: an outline feature, which serves as a navbar for the note document. A click on the outline (h1, h2, h3) will scroll the page to the corresponding H tag on the document body.
I attached a screenshot of my notes with the outline nav mentioned earlier.
HOW COULD IT BE DONE
A simple toggle on the top bar on the right to toggle (show/hide) the outline navigation.
REAL WORLD USE CASES
As described earlier, it allows easier navigation in a lengthy note. For the moment, I use NimbusNote often to make notes, keep them and share them. For example, in a course note I have made, Chapter 1, you’d want to keep things in just one note page, so exporting it in PDF is much easier than keeping several notes for the same chapter (hence exporting several PDFs). Therefore, please see the attached img to illustrate the concept I mentioned.
Yeah, my main priority now is just the outline sidebar. Right now, it’s a mess if you have long documents. Some coding topics I kept in Anytype can be long; I have to scroll all the way up to find the related sub-topics (in the table of contents).
Hi, I appreciate you taking your time to show this.
So basically, we are utilising the “column” where in the left column, we will place the table of content, and in the right column, we will place the content.
At this moment, it is like I split a normal-width page into two. On a smaller device, i.e., a phone/tablet, this is not ideal.
As much as I like this approach, this is not a real solution. Generally, columns are used to place two elements within the same row/section of the page.
Rather, I wish they would consider what Obsidian/Coda/Nimbus Note approach to this, with a floating TOC/ or sticky sidebar on the right that can be toggled on or off. Ideally, too, when we click on the TOC, the page scrolls to that particular section.
Craft has recently had an updated content navigation feature, which I really like.
In this way, when the content of the article is relatively large or there are multiple levels, you can quickly locate the content through the side navigation.
This method can greatly improve efficiency when writing documents and viewing content.
