I am experimenting with the insert block quote feature in order to have my notes and transcription for an item in a single note instead of two separate notes, since as far as I can tell it is not possible to view multiple notes on a single item at the same time. Normally I transcribe in batches and then come back to reread and add analytical notes. In a perfect world, all the transcribed content would probably be in block quotes and I would break it up with non-block quote commentary, thoughts. questions, etc
However, I am finding that it is somewhat impossible to break up a large block quote (at least as far as I can tell). If I hit enter to create a new line, that line remains within the block quote. Which is fine, however, neither clicking the block quote button again nor backspace not enter nor trying the lift list item button will breakup the block quote. Oddly enough, clicking again the block quote button will just intent the line further and further.
As I’m still figuring out my Tropy workflow, I am also open to hearing what other folks do to differentiate between original thoughts/analysis and transcription in Tropy. In the past I’ve used brackets to offset my own thoughts, but given that Tropy has the blockquote function, it seemed like a cleaner option. But perhaps not?
