When you're researching a topic or reading longform PDFs, which app do you use to connect ideas and take notes?
The tools I currently use for highlighting are pretty basic:
It ends up being a bit of a scattered mess, though as long as I remember the medium where I read something, it's reasonably easy to find a highlight again.
I went back and forth with MarginNote and LiquidText for a while. Kept seeing references to Readcube Papers, so I tried it a couple times. At first it seemed too plan and one-dimensional. After a little tinkering I saw that it has what I wanted -- one central place to put documents, annotations, highlights, research references, etc. and SYNC them all between devices. I really love LiquidText's features but until they have a true sync (in progress) and metadata it doesn't really meet my needs. I now have so much stuff in Papers it's amazing, and it's all easily searched.
Currently, I am looking for the most appropriate tool to do my research , in this case, starting to read the Bible from a beginner’s perspective. I have read the Bible before but was daunted by the complexity and correlated content. I believe I’ll have a lot of questions and notes that I need to refer to different parts of the Bible. I have looked into MarginNote 3 (paid for the full license) and started using Obsidian (paid for Catalyst to support the development. Still not sure which is better tool.
To use MarginNote for this purpose I shall based on the pdf or online version of the Bible.
Very interested in knowing anyone’s experience in this area (or similar use case) and any other apps or platform that I should also consider
Hey guys, first post here. As part of my work, I have to deal with and respond to a lot of incoming messages from different chats: Linkedin/WhatsApp/Signal/IG. I try to use Unreads/Archive features...
Markdown is the most popular way to format plain text. Add common characters like asterisks and dashes to text, much like how you might format a quick store list in your notes app or add emphasis ...
Or do you use the Linux subsytem in Windows, emulation tools like DosBOX and WINE, or mobile device emulator/simulators? What's your favorite ways you've used virtual machines and emulation?
