Dendron: Move Selection To

Selections should be non-empty (contains at least one character), and not contain frontmatter

Destination note cannot be the current active note.


Move the currently selected block of text to another note and update all backlinks.




Dendron: Move Selection To is a command that lets you move a selected block of text in the current active note to another note.

If the destination doesn't exist, a new note will be created, and the selected text will be moved to the newly created note. Otherwise, the selected text will be appended to the end of the destination note.

The effect of this command is identical to toggling selectionExtract on during lookup.

As a result, this command will also respect the leaveTrace configuration and leave a note reference to the moved selection if enabled.

  3. Open the command palette and use Dendron: Move Selection To
  4. A prompt will show up. Select your desired destination and hit enter.
  5. The destination note will open up and your selected text will be appended to the end of the note.
