I am a regular free user of Dynalist and I really like it. I’d like to go all in and use it as my second brain for the long-run, but I have the following concerns.
- Will Dynalist just fade away and die, maybe be deliberately ended, or become incompatible with some future operating system or browser? Might it convert to a paid-only format?
- How easy is it, really, to take data out of Dynalist? I know there’s an export option and that Dynalist kind of uses Markdown formatting, but the export files are
.txtfiles lose information, such as highlighting and checkboxes. The indenting has not played nicely with my markdown editors (Obsidian and Zettlr). And the
.opmlfiles… well, I barely know what those are, and even the internet mostly says you need to be a bit of techie to deal with them. So I don’t feel like the data is all that portable and wish that the export files were markdown, so no information would be get lost.
What do you think of those two issues?
Thank you to the Dynalist programmers/maintainers and anybody who can help me out here.
