Drag and Drop Note Link from Note List

Recommended Posts

My Evernote window is set up in the "Side List View" and I often wish I could insert a note link into the note I'm currently editing by dragging and dropping a note from the list into the note editor. 

The current behavior: When i click and drag on a note title in the note list, it will select the note I click+drag (closing the note I was editing and opening the "new" one for editing) and I can then then drag that note into itself and EN will insert a note link.  This is counter intuitive.

My requested behavior: the note I am currently editing will stay open, allowing me to drag the other note link into it.  I would expect a note to open for editing when I click+release in the note list, when I click+drag I do not expect it to open a different note.

Thank you!

Although not drag/drop, you an achieve this same behavior using a right-click:

  1. Click in content of Note A where you want the link to appear
  2. Right-click on Note B in the Note list, and select "Copy Note Link"
    1. This does NOT change the note focus.
    2. Note A is still active/open for editing
  3. Paste into Note A
