Embedding and Transclusion of entities in rich text fields

A increasingly popular way to connect information between content is to

  • Embed one in the other: e.g. to embed the display of an entity into another’s richt text field. This would be a read-only embedding.
  • Transclude one in the other: e.g. to embed through a type of iframe one entity into the richt text field of another. This is similar to the embed view functionality already present, but now we would apply that to single entities.

This would bring Fibery closer to the power of Roam Research, Obsidian, Logseq and such.

Ideally, in my opinion Fibery needs to choose for block architecture and block-level relations, like Logseq, which would give it a serious edge over Logseq in that Fibery is for collaboration, while Logseq is not so much.
Then rich text fields in Fibery would have an block-based outlining structure which means the blocks are entities, and can be connected, referenced and embedded and transcluded. But that is probably for another topic here.

this would be a great addition to writing in fibery.

we just had that case that we worked on a new business plan. it’s a multi page document with many chapters. We actually introduced a new database and made every chapter one entity. this way we could apply assignees and document states on a board and see who is working on what and what is ready to be proofread.

BUT it is not possible to combine all the chapters into one consistent document for export. we had to manually copy all chapters into a google docs in the end to apply formatting and also have a chance to see the document in one flow.

how are you doing that? this is clearly not the best option. i get that fibery is not intended for long form writing. but actually a lot of functionality make it way more superior to a single google doc. only that the info is then stuck in its little entities is a shame.

exporting this to google docs also is quite messy as images do not translate into the dow and need to be manually added again.

anyway a way to embed all entity documents into one document for proofreading and combining the information would be great.
