New To Evernote - in-note-bookmarks?


Recommended Posts

Some of my Evernote Notes are large and complex but I want to keep it all in the same note.   In a Microsoft Word file you can make a "bookmark" and use it as a link so I can create a Table Of Contents at the start of a large file and click on an item to go to the location in the file where that topic exists.   How do I do something like that in an Evernote note?  Think of it like a hyperlink to INSIDE the note, instead of to another note or out on the web.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi.  Bookmarks have been requested,  but at the moment are not available.  There is a way to create a Table of Contents listing multiple notes,  and my detailed notes are usually comprised of individual sections - one per note - connected by tags.  titles,  or ToCs.  Shorter notes are preferable because they're quicker to load (especially on mobile devices) and it's easier to jump to the correct section of a longer note if it's just a question of opening the required paragraph(s) in one note.

You had the right idea with the Microsoft Word file.  Add it to the note as an attachment.

Only workarounds for this one.  Simple method is create your own TOC at the top of the note and use Ctrl+F to find whatever unique identifier you attach to each section.

once again, Evernote balks at functions that users really want and adds ones that few have asked for

? Not much added recently, because Evernote is currently completely rewriting and reissuing their apps to fit in with customer requests.  We don't yet know what's in the new package...

I have worked with these types of attachments on my Mac desktop app and it worked well BUT I never tried to edit these via the iOS app... can this be done?

File attachments can not be edited directly while embedded in the Evernote database
The file has to be exported from Evernote, edited, then re-imported  to Evernote

This is done automatically on the Windows/Mac platforms     
but is a manual process on the IOS platform

My process is to store the file externally, and use a link instead of attachment    
This avoids the export/import steps
