(Archived) Feature Request - move text to a new note and add a link

Recommended Posts

Sometimes I'm taking a long note (for instance, a meeting minutes) and I end up with a lot of non-related to-do's and information in this note.

I need to capture the information fast and only some time after I can do some organization. If I don't splitting the long note into a lot of notes, I'll eventually creating duplicated to-do's or information which will be a pain to follow up.

It would be nice and save me some time to have an option in the note editor to move the selected text to a new note and replace it with its link. This could be available on mobile clients or at least Evernote web too, since Web Clipper does not work within Evernote Web.

For the Windows client at least, you can make this process easier by using the note back/forward commands Alt+LeftArrow and Alt+RightArrow:

* Cut

* Go to the target note

* Paste

* Note Back (Alt+LeftArrow)

* Copy Note Link

* Note Forward (Alt+RightArrow)

* Paste

Great tip.

Now what I'm doing is:

* Select the text in the original note

* Win+A to copy the text as a new note

* At new note, Copy Note Link

* Note Back (Alt+LeftArrow)

* Paste Note Link over text at original note

A keyboard shortcut to Copy Note Link would already help a bit.
