Yes, I’ve exported correctly.
What appears to be happening is that if I import a folder from Roam called “Book Notes” it takes all the notes and places them in a folder called “Book Notes” and each note is turned into a Document. Any other mention of any book name from another note get’s turned into a top level rem. For instance if I wrote on a daily note “Today I’m going to read some more of [[Atomic Habits]]” it will be imported into RemNote and make Atomic Habits as a top level rem and won’t merge it with the document version of it.
Here’s an example:
This is a page I imported
It has it in a folder as a document and as a top level rem. Imagine this times 2,000+ and it creates a huge problem.
I can take the document and turn it into a top level rem and then I get the option to merge it with all other pages with the same name.
Here it is as a document:
Here it is after turning it into a top level rem:
Not it has the ability to merge. But this is unmanageable for thousands of documents. I had 700+ duplicates of “Readwise” because each time it tagged a book or article it created a new page. It was easy enough merge, but it creates a huge problem when you import thousands of notes. Not to mention that importing the notes adds spaces in between each bullet as well. So then I would have to go in to thousands of notes and remove the spaces to keep correct formatting.
It seems easier to just copy and paste pages in one at a time which isn’t the end of the world. This gives me proper formatting and I can make sure I don’t create duplicates.
Needless to say, the importer needs some major work. But 1.4 looks amazing and I think every update has been amazing. Hopefully there can be a solution to this. Thanks so much!
