To create a note in Dendron, we use the look up window. This modal pop up defaults to a scratch note but we want to create a note called dendron.note.md.

You delete the scratch text and enter dendron. From here, you will see all of the notes that are associated with this hierarchy. Now you can type dendron.note to create a new markdown file.

This note is a child note of dendron and a sibling note of dendron.welcome.

Ian Jones: [0:00] Here, you can see all the files that Dendron downloaded for us. Dendron has this concept of hierarchies. You can see that by this file name dendron.welcome. Instead of putting welcome inside of a Dendron folder, Dendron has a flat folder of a bunch of files with periods deliminating the hierarchies.

[0:29] Dendron here would be the top hierarchy, and welcome would be the subhierarchy of Dendron. If we want to create a sibling of welcome, we can hit Cmd + Shift + S. By default, Dendron will pop up this lookup UI. We want to delete this and go dendron.note. We'll hit Enter. Now, you can see that Dendron created a note for us with dendron.note. We can put markdown in here.
