Adding childnotes to multiple items
In my workflow when reading literature, I often like to first download a lot of texts and then go through them and add a child note about what I'm interested with regards to each text (i.e., "skim this", "look for theory XYZ", "seminal article", "empirical study", etc.). As this task can get sort of repetitive, I was wondering whether it would be possible to assign the same child note to multiple items. I realize that tags can do this, but it's not the right solution; my childnotes are only sometimes generic, sometimes they are very specific. Thus using tags instead of child notes would result in a lot of tags that apply to only 1 or 2 items.
Ignoring the output part, that could be what you want. You can create a template that adds child notes to some items. Or maybe I can create one for you.
As far as I know, someone use it in a similar way to create child notes according to the annotation color of the item. It should not be too difficult.
- went to better notes plugin but have no idea what to install!
I would like to help you to build the template script you want. Maybe you could start a new issue in the plugin's GitHub and we could discuss it there.
