    Worldbrain's Memex to Tana with Víctor Rodríguez

    Learn how to paste annotations from Worldbrain's Memex into Tana using Tana Paste

    VR: I’ve been using the awesome for a while now with multiple tools. For those who don’t know it is a highlighting tool (similar to Hypothesis). After taking a look at Tana Paste capabilities I thought I could make it work pretty easily to paste highlights in Tana!

    You just need to use the following copy-paste template (and of course modify it to your liking)


    • {{{PageTitle}}} #article
      • Link:: {{{PageUrl}}} {{#Notes}}
      • {{{NoteHighlight}}} #quote
        • From:: [[{{{PageTitle}}}]]
        • Memex Link:: {{{NoteLink}}}
        • {{{NoteText}}} {{/Notes}}

    Take a look at the video for a quick demo of how it works!

    It has still some rough edges, like the From attribute that does not get associated correctly with the #quote supertag, however the Link attribute of #article gets resolved correctly. I’m not sure in which side the problem is (me, memex or tana)

    Hope it helps!
