# Try LogSeq Note Taking

Recently, I migrated the notes from plain Markdown files to LogSeq. Here are some findings and tips.

## Application

• Linux desktop is MUCH better than the Windows version.
• Windows clients (0.4.5) is almost not usable.
• Page references are unclickable.
• Rendering is buggy.
• No pictures.
• Buggy slash and backslash.
• Search in Chinese is buggy.
• Fonts are not overrided correctly. It’s an electron app, right?

## Server

• It seems that there is no easy self-host way right now.
• Future plan is to export the notes.

## View & Display

• Regardless of the bugs, I love its display style, simple and powerful.

## Syntax

• Org and Markdown styles are not exchangable. Therefore, you have to choose one from the very beginning.
• Org and Markdown styles are mixed.
• Code block.
• Normal escape characters are buggy in orgmode.

## Synchronization

• Instead of git commits, I use syncthing to synchronize the notes among my terminals.
• Few conficts are initiated since I did not start the syncthing client first.
• Requires reindexing all the time when switch between different computers.

## Customization

• custom.css? Are you sure?
• Very hard to find the right CSS selector to override. They even hard coded some fonts in the default CSS.
  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11  html[data-theme="dark"] .CodeMirror { font-family: "JetBrains Mono", monospace; } html[data-theme="light"] .CodeMirror { font-family: "JetBrains Mono", monospace; } :not(pre) > code { font-family: "JetBrains Mono", monospace; } 
• If you think that the [data-theme="dark"] part can be omitted, then you are wrong. The font will not be overrided unless you select the data-theme.
