I know it has been discussed at length but I wish to share my 2 cents.
If the engine working on the relation between notes shows notes that are absolutely not related then obviously something is not working.
In addition, it does seem that lots of people, including myself would love the ability to perform the action of relating 2 notes themselves.
When working on projects or like myself looking for aork, the same lingo comes again and again, and it seems that this fact makes Agenda to relate notes that wouldn’t be otherwise related.
I love the fact that you guys created a system that, a little like an AI, scans and intuitively relates notes, you can proud.
I do think that lots of people work in lots of different ways and the feature of “note relations” albeit awesome as it is, is understood by people in a variety of ways.
If notes relations are imposed on the user with 0 ways to customise it then in my opinion, it’s a hindrance more than a help.
I know you’ve worked really hard on this but maybe that engine can be redesigned to do something else, and maybe, just a suggestion, let the choice to the user to do it on their own.
Middle ground: instead of connecting 2 notes without the user to know, offer suggestions “here are notes that seem related, would you like to relate them?” with the option of disabling that wizard and let the user do it them selves.
just my 2 cents.
