Yes, but we call them Note Links. You can create links between specific notes on your Windows or Mac desktop. 

 

To create a Note Link: 

 

- Right click the note in the note list and choose 'Copy Note Link'

- This link will be placed in your clipboard, ready to paste into a separate note.

- In new note, paste Note Link into note body. 

 

Link to individual notes will also work on our Android and iOS clients.

If you are interested in Links between notes, then you will also want to understand the power of creating "Table of Contents" -- this would be links to many notes that are relevant to a project, for example

-- I personally put a links back to the table of contents on each relevant note

Keep in mind the GUID (globally unique identifier) may change in certain circumstances.  IE, if the note you are linking to, gets moved from a sync'd notebook to a local notebook (even by accident), the GUID is changed & the link is now broken.  Even if you move it back to a sync'd notebook, the GUID is still different & the link is broken.  Or let's say you muffed up a note & want to pull it from a backup you have on your hard drive...importing that note will now give it a new GUID. 

 

So although they are nice, it may be good to not rely on them if it's very important. 

 

What I do is use the random password generator in Roboform & paste that into the notes.  IE, if I have note 1 & note 2 that I want "linked", I will add "Reference # abcdefghijk" in both notes.  Then I simply have to search on abcdefghijk to find all the related notes.
