I want to see all Markdown files with Incoming Links (not Incoming Item Links) to purge “orphan” notes from my databases. This would preferably be part of a Smart Group to maintain visibility on older notes. Is this possible? If so, how do I do it?
Only item links are currently indexed and supported by smart groups and searching.
Thanks, @cgrunenberg! Do you know how (or know someone who would know how) to create a Smart Rule-compatible Applescript to automate the conversion of wiki links to item links? I have a couple of folders that I would like to convert in one go.
Haha, I read this thread here but didn’t respond as I wasn’t up to creating a Smart Rule and the necessary Script Library. Completely forgot that it already exists Thank you!
You could select these groups in the sidebar, then search for
kind:markdown s:selection, select all results and choose Tools > Links > Convert WikiLinks to Item Links. Or do you want to perform this frequently?
Thanks for pointing this out. I didn’t think of the easy solution. I believe that after this step, I can use less sophisticated Smart Groups to do cleanup on newly-created files.
That’s often the case…
