Hi, all! I’m thinking this group might have some suggestions for me. I’ve gone deep on Obsidian, including using my daily note to track my weekly and daily priorities. I’ve dropped Todoist and do it all within Obsidian now.
I’ve reworked my computing workspace so that I have 2 stacked monitors. I’m using the top monitor as a place I glance up at when I’m trying to think of what to do next, plan the next few hours, etc. The right half of that monitor has my time blocks for the day displayed in Fantastical. On the left half of that monitor, I’d love to display either my projects dashboard from Obsidian or my daily note from Obsidian in view/presentation mode so that I can keep track of next tasks and remind myself of what’s important that day.
The trouble I’m running into is that I also keep Obsidian on my lower monitor, and it doesn’t support opening multiple windows. I need it on the lower monitor since that’s where I’m taking notes, creating content, etc.
I looked at some pretty esoteric ways to clone and mirror my main Obsidian vault to a 2nd vault and then open two instances/vaults in Obsidian to do this, but that seems like it could be pretty brittle, especially since I use Obsidian Sync and use Obsidian on my iPad and iPhone from time to time.
Going back to my original goal – I basically just want a window that I can position on half of my screen that contains text, my top priorities of that day. Ideally it would be something I could easily copy/paste into each morning as I set things up and that wouldn’t be distracting - just the bulleted list of my top items for the day. I could probably just use TextEdit for this, but I bet someone has come up with an amazing, elegant way to do this that would look better than TextEdit. Any suggestions?
