  • Using Obsidian Aliases

    One of the things I missed while using Craft was aliases. Instead of having a single note that referenced a few related spellings of a word, or strongly related topics, with Craft you had to have individual notes for each spelling. Today I’ll show you how you can use aliases to stop this duplication. Aliases […]

  • Using Craft as a Kanban Board

    I’ve been struggling to find a good use for cards in Craft. Sure they look really cool in demos and screenshots, but what is their practical use outside of adding some visual style to your notes? I think I’ve found one that may be useful for some Craft users. Let’s see how we can use […]

  • No Maintenance Research System?

    In this excellent video Peter Akkies talks about your weekly review templates, but I want to focus on what he says around the 7:00 mark. He says that if you don’t do your weekly review you’ll end up with a system you can’t trust because you no longer understand what’s in it. This is why […]

  • Summarize Your Main Areas of Focus

    If someone asked you to summarize the two or three areas that you’re most interested in, would you know what to say? Today I’ll talk about a recent idea I had to write down summaries of those important areas every quarter so that they incorporate your latest understanding.

  • Unlinked Mentions in Obsidian

    One of the big selling points for research tools like Obsidian and Roam Research is the idea of unlinked mentions. Today we’ll look at what unlinked mentions are, and how you could use them in Obsidian. Then I’ll talk about why I don’t care so much about them as a feature in Craft.

  • Using Craft External Storage Locations

    In a recent update Craft added external storage locations. Today we’re going to check it out.

  • Should You Use Craft as a Task Manager?

    I’ve been asked more than once about keeping track of tasks in Craft. How do I do it? What is my setup, so today we’ll talk about it. In a word, Craft is not a task manager. I don’t manage tasks in Craft and you shouldn’t either. To take a longer look at this, everyone […]

  • When Do You Read Syntopically

    Today we’re going to address a question I get fairly regularly. We’ll highlight the version Craig asked. > Hi Curtis, hope you and the family are well. I’ve been reading How to read a book as have seen you suggest it a number of times. I really grasped the elementrary and the inspectional reading. However […]

  • Share Content from Chrome to Craft

    Recently in the [Craft](https://craft.do) Slack channel someone wanted to know if it was possible to get Craft’s Share Sheet functionality from Safari into Chrome. The quick answer is, yes this is entirely possible to do and tie it to a keyboard command. Today’s video shows you how to do just that.
