How to add hyperlinks without returning to Mac or online app


Recommended Posts

Evernote is the supreme online note system and as such links – internal and external hyperlinks – are essential to its nature.

Links and hyperlinks work fine for me on the Mac and online apps but I can't find how to add a hyperlink in iOS e.g. on iPad or iPhone.

I have been an Evernote user for some years and I'm sure hyperlinks were easy enough before...

What am I missing here?

I'm able to insert hyperlinks into a note in Evernote/IOS999041475_ScreenShot2018-12-21at08_51_21.png.b7c202b808860af79e5f73227bb91d3c.png

For an internal link, I use the copy-internal-link function, and paste.

For external links I copy/paste, or just type the link address

What's missing in IOS is the edit link function.  I'm not able to edit the url embedded beneath the text.

OK, I can copy the internal link, or copy/paste an external URL link address. 

However, they tend to be long e.g.

Nobody wants that taking up three lines in a note, or a big chunk of a mobile device screen.

I'm sure in 'historic Evernote' I used to be able to set the name of the link e.g. 'GDoc 3x134'. I don't want to edit the actual URL, just name it sensibly.

Just edit the displayed text in your note.

Interesting. How would you edit (and shorten) the displayed text, which is the link -- in this note:

I copied the link and pasted 3 times
I then  edited the displayed text.  Each link points to your Hyperlink note15AC016A-24AC-4B54-BC76-4852EEEBF276.thumb.jpeg.6fecab19230389c617426b53faaa4483.jpeg

The actually url is stored in underlying html code.  You"re free to edit the displayed text.
