Can I link between notes?

Is it possible to link from one note to another? How?


ues it's is, since a few days :slight_smile:

You can create a link to a note by specifying its ID in the URL. For example:
[Link to my note](:/0b0d62d15e60409dac34f354b6e9e839)
Since getting the ID of a note is not straightforward, each app provides a way to create such link.
In the desktop app, right click on a note an select "Copy Markdown link".
In the mobile app, open a note and, in the top right menu, select "Copy Markdown link".
You can then paste this link anywhere in another note.


I thought I saw something like that in the change log, but I couldn't find it today :sweat_smile: and I still can't find it in the app, even now.

When I right click a note in the note list, I get this:


This is the desktop app on Windows. I have the latest version, the About dialog says 1.0.85 (prod, win32).

Is it a bug? Or am I being blind again? :smiley:

The fix was done 2 days ago and the release made 2 days ago is 1.0.86
Can you try it?

Yes it's done but not released yet :slight_smile:

:woman_facepalming: well that explains why I couldn't find it in the release notes today. Sorry. :smiley:

No problem


In the desktop app, it's also possible to drag & drop a note from the sidebar into another note. This is the same as "Copy Markdown link" and paste it into another note.


Not for me :frowning:

Sorry, I've just understood that it works between notes in the same notebook :smiling_face:
