The highlight-aggregation service Readwise supports a feature called inline tagging, which allows front-loading the work of organizing highlights by adding tags to highlight notes. Beyond plain tagging, Readwise supports several special action tags.
Readwise documentation on this feature is sparse and spread across several locations, so here is a summary.
||Concatenate highlights 1 (".c1 + .c2", “.c1 + .c2 + .c3”)|
||Heading level 2 (.h1->.h2->h3, .h1->.h2)|
||Question & Answer 3 (Q: “Example question?” A: “Example Answer”)|
For action tags containing
N with a number starting from 1 and
incrementing in subsequent related highlights.
Tag with shorthand, like
.prob, then rename the tag on Readwise to
.probability. Readwise will learn the shorthand and rename all future uses
