ok ready to make the switch. Anybody have guidance on how to make the move? I don’t need to keep using noteplan and happy to use obsidian sync and move files from the “hidden” iCloud sync location to home directory vault location. All my files are .MD already. I don’t want to lose my daily, weekly, monthly calendar files as they contain info for my project files. I have very few attached non-markup files to deal with.
this would be a nice appendix for David’s Field Guide which I bought but don’t want to wait for that addition.
I’ve used both platforms over time and believe my workflows better align with Obsidian. All my task management is in OmniFocus even though I’ve tried both NotePlan’s and Obsidian’s approaches. I also want the backlinks to be listed at the bottom of my pages instead of the top. I do think Obsidian’s DataView and Advanced Tables plugins are a big plus for Obsidian. I don’t use block scheduling and usually have Noteplan’s calendar collapsed on the side as appointments/events live in Busycal. I know that Noteplan’s iOS client is superior to Obsidian but I don’t use it much other than occasional reference. I capture ideas with Drafts on my iPhone for later processing. I keep everything tied together via HookMark. I access Noteplan thru SetApp so it’s not a money thing.
For me, I’ve learned that there is no one single APP to do everything on every platform so I’m trying to cleanup my portfolio to use the best in class for each. HookMark, OmniFocus, DEVONthink, Drafts, Mindnode, Airmail (hold your catcalls LOL), MarsEdit, Ivory, Warp/Fish, Audio Hijack, and the last piece - Obsidian.
Hope this provides a good explanation for my thinking.
What @snelly said. Although noting that if you were using any of the “not strictly Markdown” features (task recurrence, etc.) you might have to set that stuff up again in Obsidian for it to work going forward.
