Filter by empty notes
No votes left
I would like to be able to filter notes without any content (empty notes). Motivation: Be able to "grow" my knowledge base by quickly identifying notes I need to complete/work on. On other knowledge management systems, this filter proved to be very useful. Thanks!

I understand that an auto-generated daily-jot is deleted after a few days if unused, but I've found that I have a large amount of completely empty daily jots, because of my superpower-level procrastination.
The issue is seen if I move outstanding tasks from a prior daily jot without inputting anything else into the note that day. This results in a note that is empty in content, backlinks, completed tasks, and hidden tasks-- that is to say, it is complete empty and unreferenced anywhere-- but it is not autodeleted because it was used for a day, to hold tasks.
While it might be dicey to try to automate this away, a way to search for these kind of notes (no content, backlinks, completed tasks, or hidden tasks) would make it easy to clean up, at least. (Especially now that we have multi-note selection!) It is currently not possible to see if a note has any metadata content (backlinks, etc.) from the note view, so I can't simply select all the blank-looking notes and delete them.
