Adding internal link search option to connect two notes in an easier way


Recommended Posts

I changed from notion to evernote because it is simplier to use, but one of the important features I miss from notion is the ability to create internal linking by searching for a note directly when writing another. That is very helpful to create interlinks. Currently it is possible to copy a link from one note to another, but it is not that easy to search for that link, since you have to close the entire note you are writing to make the search. While in notion it is possible to look for the note directly when writing another just like in the example below.

One approach would be to have the note you are writing open in a separate window. You can then use the main window to search for notes and copy the links from the notes you find into the new note in it's own separate window. Unfortunately you can no longer automatically launch all new notes in a new window. So it's a two step process - create your new note and then double click it in the note list to launch it in a new window.

Linking is not yet a highlight of the v10 EN.

Interesting idea from notion, and Roam is building a whole app around the idea of backlinking, which means the link between notes is working in both directions.

Maybe send it from the EN client by the feedback option as well.
