Create Jump Linking & Linking to a Section in a Note


Ren12

Idea

So far, you can only link one note to another. But you can't:

  • Link one section of a note to another section of a note
  • Link one section of a note to a section of another note

EXAMPLE: Literally any wikipedia (<-- random example) page. After the intro description, there is a 'contents' box that links to itself later in a document. You can also click to links of sections of other pages on the site.

OneNote already has this feature. I find OneNote awful BUT this feature is the one and only reason why I use OneNote over Evernote at work, and Evernote just for personal use.

Please update your linking features!

I would really love to see this idea implemented. I also need the links to be bidirectional. I want to see sections within notes to be treated as mini notes or like index cards (should I chose this route,not by default)

It would be nice if we could create a set of links or bookmarks within a note that would allow us to jump to different sections of a note.

For example, we would be able to create a list of links at the head of the note then jump to a start of a section of the note. At end of each section we would be able to insert a link that would jump back to the list of links at the head of the note.

The links/bookmarks should have customisable text so we can create links that make sense the author.

Sometimes I have very large notes with multiple sections and thousands of words, and it can be hard to navigate within the note after a while. 

Right now I have tried visual clues using for example text formatting (colour, bold, italics) but it still takes a while to move through a large note. 

If anyone has any ideas or techniques they use to navigate more easily within a note, I would love to hear what you do.

Thanks!

I merged your post with an existing request for this feature

I split long notes into separate notes.  A Table-of-Contents links the sections

>>Sometimes I have very large notes with multiple sections and thousands of words

Is this really a "note",and is Evernote the best editor?     
I would use a word processing editor.  The document can be stored in Evernote as an attachment

Please Please Please this should kind of be table stakes at this point. This is really needed to avoid creating note sprawl because hyperlinks only work to an entire Note. As others have said possible in most / all other note applications and even in ALL word processing applications.

 

Thanks
