Given that you have already split the word document into separate files,
Jeremy's answer is probably as good as there is. However, for the next time
you need to do something like this, consider that you could have done the
I import Word files into TiddlyWiki all the time and some of them are quite
large. I open the document in Word and copy the entire document. I then
paste it into TiddlyWiki creating one large tiddler. The copy and paste
operation nearly converts the document into a text document but not quite
and some of the formatting has to be repaired. Once I've saved the large
tiddler, for many of my purposes, I'm done. When I need a small portion of
the large tiddler, I can split it out simply enough. If you highlight the
portion of the text in display mode and drag it to an open area of
TiddlyWiki, say under the sidebar, and drop it there, TiddlyWiki will treat
that as though you're importing a new untitled tiddler. You can then
complete the import and rename that tiddler anything you would like. The
net result is that you could do the entire operation in about the same
amount of time as you have done already.
An alternative approach is to get yourself a copy of TiddlyWiki Classic
from Eric's TiddlyTools http://www.tiddlytools.com/ with the Quickstart
Basics package. That includes an editor function that will allow you to
split a large tiddler into smaller ones while leaving either links or
transclusions in the main document to retain the order of the original
document. Eric also has what I would call a powertool called SplitTiddler
that will split the large tiddler automatically in a number of different
ways including at a user defined section marker. Eric's tools will only
work with TiddlyWiki Classic. However, once you have the document split up
or refactored, you can then import the finished tiddlers into TW5.
Although TiddlyWiki was designed with small tiddlers in mind, I find it
handles large ones just as well. You can leave the Word document as a
single tiddler if that suits your needs or split it up as required. Next
time you import a Word document, consider what you are actually trying to
accomplish before you go to the effort of splitting it up.
