Obsidian is a blank Canvas. You are free to choose your style and workflow. While this flexibility offers endless possibilities, it can sometimes leave newcomers feeling overwhelmed by choice.

Wouldn’t it be nice to see what and how other users are using the app?

That’s precisely the inspiration behind this article.

In this edition of Obsidian showcases, I will share some workflow setups, dashboards, Custom CSS snippets, dataview, and task queries used by the Obsidian users.

All of these showcases are collected from the Obsidian Forum, Obsidian subreddit, and Obsidian Discord group.

Novel Writing Info Panel

The novel writing info panel is shared by the user reaty on Obsidian Forum.

It somehow tries to emulate the scrivener-like info panel. You can see info about the scene or the whole project, like synopsis, word progress, etc.

You need dataview to create an info panel like this with the help of properties.
