Just a quick idea:
To store unicodes in dynalist and get a drop down menu, just create a series of tags which include the ones you want with a fixed prefix which you only use for this purpose e.g.:
etc etc (@* will bring a drop down menu of these three which you can choose from)
The slight downside with this approach is you need to delete the @* star sign if you want the unicode by itself, and of course with a macro program like phrase express you can store them more directly, however this has the advantage of making them available on mobile and if you regularly operate on other computers which don't have a macro program etc
I think these can also be a more visually appealing /easier to visually search method of assigning gtd context tags e.g. #/* (home) #/* (online) etc ...
i like this idea
I can only remember a handful of phrase express unicode macros I have
i just remembered a really useful unicode symbol
its short in the science community as "thusly" or "therefore"
do you have list of unicode symbols you use
It's in progress, at the moment I'm working with these:
GTD #* (think / brainstorm etc) #* (Calendar based planning) #* (call) #* (message - any type, including reply) #* (needs laptop e.g. proper work) #* (research) #* (read) #* (write) #+ (for physical things) #+ (at home) #+ (errand) #+ (errand requiring car)Other #_� (a question) #_ (waiting) #_ (Partner (event)) #_ (event)
New mini development:
'Computer work' has become it's own category (generally I prefer to have no more than four of these for each 'punctuation' as that is all the dynalist drop down menu will allow without pressing the 'show all' menu, which slows things down) with four sub categories based on difficulty:
.#- (The hardest work requiring a lot of brain power / 100% focus).#- (Medium difficulty (Not 'oh god' that horrible piece of work, but still challenging).#-(Very easy / unchallenging work but not quite mindless (I wouldn't be able to process a radio show at the same time).#-(Literally mindless work like data entry I can do while listening to e.g. a radio show)
I find this extremely helpful for my working day as I tend to plan my day to alternate between levels of difficulty to keep myself from going insane.
Sounds like a nice productivity trick!
Ive created a whole unicode tag list for every symbol too. for example I just write #car and the tag gets completed #car emoji for car appears attached and later I erase the #car text.
Can you explain how you implement this .... and can you share with other users ??
I personally just use the condensed wikipedia list of common unicodes
You can just copy + paste these
Here's anohter list i found, most common 2000 unicode chars
this is the list. later you can add emojis to all your documents simply writing the object in tag. I have it in spanish but you can copy it if you likeyou could do your own version with english tagshttps://dynalist.io/d/en8JRAp8CReowdVdpfl3DWzw
