Does anyone get Apple Shortcuts the app on iOS? I am trying to grok it but maybe I am missing something fundamental. What I am trying to do is append a link and some of my annotations to an Obsidian note. Maybe I’ll just use Captio.I do have it doing that, but the user experience is not something that I would call nice.

There is a lot of automatically jumping from app to app. I have not figured out how to script the text formatting that I want to apply to the input in a foreach loop. Searching for clues about what to do is maddening because the names are all the same and “shortcut” is such a generic name.

I would like to improve things, but eventually my patience for playing the Apple guessing game runs out. Anybody got any tips?
