Inherited visibility based on parent card

Hi there,

I was wondering if inherited visibility could be considered as a setting?

I’ve found myself writing, note-taking, and journaling more than ever once I started using this app. I absolutely love it.

My only point of friction I’ve run into recently is I tend to have a 50/50 usage of visibility and priority cards. When doing priority cards, they tend to be for things I’m learning, and insights I’m gaining from reading/studying. The parent and outline scaffolding in Supernotes is just brilliant for this.

For visible-only cards, I tend to be using this for fleeting thoughts, random ideas, task lists, mini-projects, and journal entries. For those, I tend to have a parent card in my outline like Journal or Random Ideas. It would be nice if there was a setting for that Journal parent card where it had a ‘children’ selector, and I could put all children as visible instead of as priority.

Then, every time I’m writing a note that I don’t want to show in the outline, I can select it’s parent as one of these top-level cards and have it’s visibility automatically switched without having to individually click on each one.

Thanks for the feature request! We have actually thought about this before, but generally don’t like how it would realistically require a new (hyper-focused) setting that even users of it might get annoyed by on occasion.

However, we plan to add Visibility as a inherited property if it is an active filter, which should cover most of your usecase I think.

I get what you mean and you’re probably right. The active filter thing though, while covering the use-case doesn’t really reduce friction more than clicking the 3 dots at the bottom and changing the priority.

Maybe for speed’s sake would it be possible to create a keyboard shortcut that changes the visibility and then have a quick, slightly transparent indicator that pops up (with no action confirmation required) that states “visibility of card changed to visible” or something to that effect?

Hi @meldron,

Thanks for the further feedback, we’ll look into this.

Also do you ever use the Multi-select prompt? (Make sure this is enabled). You can change the visibility of card(s) very quickly using this.

Thanks Tobias! I didn’t realise there was a keyboard shortcut for the multi-select. Using that, I’ve been able to rig up a solution using keyboard maestro now, so problem solved :grin:
