Multi Vault

Multi vault lets you create multiple vaults for a given workspace. Each vault is a folder that can contain any number of hierarchies.

Use Cases

  • for sensitive notes, multi-vault enables local only vaults vs vaults that can are synced on file sharing services like dropbox
  • for modularizing knowledge, multi-vault enables users to mix and match existing vaults depending on context
  • for federating and curating knowledge, multi-vault enables users to publish/subscribe to public vaults using protocols like git
  • for access control, multi-vault lets users configure specific vaults to be private which turns off publication and sharing of any notes inside said vault


Documentation for lookup is still being written. For up to date docs, see the multi vault project page.



Vault Add

  • shortcuts: none

Add a new vault

Vault Remove

  • shortcuts: none

Remove a vault

Remove a vault from your workspace. Note that the underlying files wil not be deleted - the vault will lose its association with your workspace.


Lookup supports multiple vaults. When using lookup to find a note, each search result is labeled with which vault it belongs to. When creating a note in lookup, the currently opened note’s vault is used as the vault for the new note.

Known Issues

Currently, the following commands are not supported when run outside of your primary vault (your primary vault is the one that you initialize with your workspace before any Vault Add commands are run)

  • Refactor Hierarchy
  • Build Pod
  • Tree Navigation Shortcuts
  • Schema Lookup (when you have multiple schemas with the same name)
