Feature request: the ability to link to specific sections within a note

Recommended Posts

I've seen this requested in other posts before and didn't think it was too big a deal.  But now that I'm working on a really long note with tons of sections and the note just keeps on growing, I'm now wishing we had this feature!  Hope you give it serious consideration. Thanks!

You can also break your note into separate notes, and use note links to link them. E.g. make a master note that contains links to your sub-notes, and possibly link notes together in sequence as well.

I do miss this stuff in Evernote vs. working in my Wiki.


It's really nice to be able to use anchors to section headings.


I can just insert a code at the top of the note <TOC> and an autogenerated table of contents is maintained.

Then text can just be formatted as one of several levels of Heading.  And that text becomes a table of contents entry.


Copy that link and now you can past it into other notes and link to a specific section of a note.


Or maybe just inline include it <include [note link]> and voila, you have the same bit of text re-purposed all over your notebooks with a single place to edit/update it.


There's just so much Evernote could do with a little markup processing ability.


With the trend to simplifying and dumbing down, I pessimistically don't see it ever happening.

  • One step and it becomes able to have "dashboards" and BI summary/reports
  • One more step and it becomes wiki like
  • One more step and the data can live and be re-purposed into little "applications"
  • One more step and it's hyper-card 3.0

+1.  I tried to reply to the other feature request on the same topic, but for some reason I couldn't.  I can do this in OneNote, which often means I use OneNote instead, which is a bummer.

Anyone have a link to the original Feature Request for this?

And... is there a specific place we are to go for submitting Feature Requests, as opposed to just randomly posting about them here? 

Thanks! :)
