4. Managing Cards: how to create cards and edit text
Creating a Card: Use the shortcut “C” or click on the button “+ Card” in your Today’s section. A new card will appear on the bottom of the section. If you’re using the Desktop app, use the shortcut “⌘ + ⇧ + C” to create a Card from anywhere in your Desk.
Marking a Card as done:
Snoozing a card: 👇 snoozed card will come back to the Today’s section when due
Managing a card: Clicking the 3 dots button on a card you have several options:
Remove from desk: If you are not done with a card but don't want it on the Desk. See 8) Completing a card vs removing it from the Desk
Block time in Calendar: Schedule when to work on a card. This will create a private event on both your Mindmesh and Google Calendar.
History: You can access other versions of your cards and restore a previous one.
Delete: Deleted cards cannot be recovered in Mindmesh (although a 🗑️ is coming soon). To avoid unintended deletion we have added a confirmation message. In the unfortunate event you deleted a card you need, please contact us with the approximate time of deletion and your time zone, the title of the card, and the authorization to access your data for this specific card recovery task.
Text formatting: Highlight the text you want to format to bring up a menu of formatting options.
Turn into Card: To track and take action on the most important parts of a document, turn them into tasks. Tasks are new cards, connected with the original one but trackable independently from it. You can find the newly created card in your Inbox.
New Card blocks
Text blocks are not the only thing you can add to a card. You can add many other block types by typing “/”:
New Linked Cards: Create a linked card connected to the main card. The new card will be in your Inbox on the desk, so you can manage it as you please, and the card text will retain a link to it.
Upload file: Have any files to complement your task? Or need to prep for a meeting? Add any file you need into your Card.
Upload image: You can also do this by pasting an image from your clipboard or dragging and dropping it in the text editor.
Checklist item: Easily create a checklist to breakdown a task.
Emojis: Add emojis to give context or even to prepare content 👋
Embed Figma Design
Heading: There are three levels of headings that have increasing size and padding: H1, H2, H3. You can use basic styling on headings but they will be converted into regular paragraph text if you put them in a list.
Lists: Bulleted and numbered lists available.
To turn a text into a hyperlink: Highlight the text you want to connect, click on the 🔗 icon and paste the URL.
