How to combine Kinopio and ObsidianMD?

I like this idea. Basically helping get cards from the inbox into other places without having to visit the inbox.

This is another cool idea. I kind of wish the circled area could have some design to help differentiate between cards, but being able to edit from there would be killer.

it’s a cool idea, but building a totally diff text editing ui view would be a very big task

for scope reasons , it’ll be click a card to add it to the center of your viewport (no dragging it in)

I was thinking of either:

  1. show a dismissable tip that “clicking on a card in the list will add it to this space” (pictured above)
  2. or don’t show a tip and instead show a ‘move here’ kind of button over each individual card. Clicking the card in the non-button region would take you to that card in the inbox).

i’m leaning towards #2, because that’d be more consistent with the behaviour of list items everywhere else in the app

Why is the Inbox special here? What if you could do this with any arbitrary space? I’ve sometimes wished I could split my window between two spaces and drag between them. This feature would let me at least see the context of the destination space.

I know you’re trying to limit scope but perhaps for consideration in the future.

Just like in the browser/raycast extension, the inbox being special here eliminates the friction-of/need-for manually selecting a source space – it’s a deliberately more opinionated flow

when you click the card name you’ll get a (still rough) options dialog which lets you move the card to any space

Are you also thinking of something like this “move/copy” option for the search results for tag hits? Ability to copy a card from Tags list - #5 by Sharknader

certainly in the future but not sure it’ll be part of this project

From the blog last year - Inbox Cards List

p.s. If Obsidian gains traction on their proposed .canvas file format, it’d be trivial to add support for it in Kinopio

Any update on this?

It doesn’t seem like they have? That said if you can make a seperate feature request forum thread for .canvas export support I should be able to add that (let me know if you’d need importing too)
