Sadly, I think I need the flexibility of the x-callback models. For example, I haven’t figured out how to access the text of a note from the “open note” shortcut. Similarly, there are times when I want to search for notes with multiple tags (for example, I include a roundup in my daily note of my active projects, which means I search for all the notes with the tags #project, #master (how I denote the landing note for a project), and #active, and I can’t see how to use the search shortcut with multiple tags. Or am I just missing something?
Any idea why it’s device-limited? I’m not sure I see a significant security benefit to it, which is where my first thought would go.
Regardless, thanks for responding and for the discussion – I’m only just figuring out how the various automation pieces work here, and I’m loving the workflow I’ve been able to build!
You can of course use other shortcut features to choose what note you’re picking (variables, user input, etc).
I can’t see a built in way to search multiple tags; though you might be able to chain a few things together. I.e. search for tag, assign to variable; filter variable for note names, search them for subsequent tags, or similar. I haven’t been able to figure it out quickly now; I may have more of a look later, but you’re correct about limited functionality here.
Additionally, upon reviewing the X-Callback docs, I may be misreading here. They specify that the for MacOS is not cross-compatible with iOS, but they don’t explicitly mention iPadOS or syncing between the devices. I may have misinterpreted this. I’ll test shortly.
My pleasure I hope you enjoy automation - between Bear + Drafts automation, I am very happy too!
