Specifics on linking notes.

Typically, you give each note a unique identifier, and create a link to the desired note.

Many Zettelkasten-aligned software have this function.


  • Wiki style links 1
    • use double brackets to symbolize an internal link [[noteID]]
    • typically clickable, so you will be taken directly to the note
    • variations in symbols: <>
  • Manual linking
    • if the software you use doesn’t support internal linking, you can set manual ‘links’ - a search function makes this much easier
    • you can use the same format as a wiki style link, or use any symbol you want
    • add the link, but since it is not clickable, you will have to copy and paste the ID into the search bar
