Tachi 0 Posted August 16, 2012 Share Posted August 16, 2012 One feature I have wished for in Evernote since switching to using it as my primary note taking solution is auto-linking between notes in the same notebook. When the title of an existing note exists within another note the text becomes a link to it. This is a feature I love in Tomboy (which I used when taking notes in college). It allowed me to take notes in class with very little effort because I didn't have to maintain a lot of structure in my notebooks as it automatically centralized all information on any idea and linked to information whenever it was mentioned. Each idea would be its own note, and in my lecture notes I would mention the title/name of an idea and the text would automatically link to it.A contrived example:To set the stage I took both software engineering and a program analyst course in college. And this example takes place in a lecture dedicated to software design and theory.I would be taking notes in the lecture about a specific program we're examining. The professor would mention several design patterns used in the program as we examine the source code. Instead of explaining these patterns in my lecture notes I simply record the name of the pattern. If I already have a note on a pattern mentioned in my notebook the text in my lecture note would automatically become a link to the note explaining the design pattern. If the note for the design pattern did not already exist and I create a note at a later date by that name my lecture notes would then automatically link to them. Link to comment
