Open in Logseq
    • Sidenotes are a complete hack on multiple levels.
    • First, the CSS required is nuts. But you don't have to worry about that, unless it breaks or looks ugly in your world.
    • Second, the way they are specified is by an ugly and unintuitive convention (the right thing would require changes to Logseq). Here's how it works:
      • Put the sidenote content in a child block.
        • Actually anywhere on the same page works I think.
      • Within the parent block, include the child as a block reference (using (()) notation).
    • Implementation
    • Redesign
      • The block-reference mechanism is very unintuitive and a pain to use. And there's no reason for it! I can use whatever syntax I choose
        eg something like this
        .
      • OK, and
        should support formatting and AMMDI links
