This article begins our "Hidden Gems" series, part of our Supporter Content offerings, dedicated to small but mighty tweaks that can enhance or improve your Obsidian note-taking experience, ranging from the odd CSS styling to the more niche plugins out there.

Callouts are a great visual way to break up content, but out of the box they're commonly used only as a replacement for headers, or as larger blockquotes, which works extremely well for long-form content. However, if you enjoy taking notes in list format for a more concise note-taking experience, such as within a school or work environment, being able to use callouts on a per-line basis, especially in order to highlight important points in the moment, turn lists into a more powerful tool. By visually separating important items you can quickly scan and identify essential information at a glance.
