Not sure how to phrase this request but in my workflow, I use the daily document feature to house pretty much the main things I intend to carry out for the day. This not only includes daily ceremonies but portals to other areas and embedded queues (see examples below). I want to be able to re-use this structure as a template in a way that actually works without lots of workarounds
Using Roam as a comparison, one way to do this is to copy over the metadata template from a template repository onto Today’s daily doc [https://youtu.be/-V6Yc2ovJuM?t=318](http://copy and pasting over template onto daily doc).
problem here is that Remnote doesn’t have a “shift+drag” command to copy and paste like in Roam… So you basically have to copy+paste which aint bad… What’s bad is that in order to copy everything in, you need to have all the bullets fully expanded… and even then, this would only work with non-portal bullets
Another way to do this is to use a text expander like tool to insert a short code that would expand into the entire template.
Problem here is that all the text expander tools I’ve used can’t seem to render the todo checkbox in Remnote. There also isn’t an easy way to get portals to work
Okay… I know that remnote has built-in templates… but I use that for regular rems and not rems at the document or folder level… And even then… I don’t think it allows you to include portals
Because of this challenge, I basically had to hack my way into a solution involving
*copy and pasting my ceremonies from my template repository in Remnote (because I can’t text expand TODO checkboxes via keyboard maeastro and text expander)
*creating a ridiculously intricate keyboard maestro for the portals which involves interleaving the up keyboard stroke inbewteen each portal
There’s got to be an easier way.
I imagine due to the complexity of such a tool, that one is bound to end up with a main landing page to consolidate and go through ones daily work… which could be why Roam made the daily notes page its landing page… Hopefully Remnote could make it a bit easier to leverage this feature
