Show annotation link in note

  • Wonderful stuff, thanks for all your hard work.

    Earlier, I was using ZotFile to create notes from annotations and I was able to include links to the PDF or even the comment. Ex: "They show that the sun rises in the East. (note on p.343)" where note on p.343 appears as a link in the note editor.

    I notice that I am able to click on highlight quotes in the note editor and it shows 'Show on Page' and 'Unlink'. These are good but slightly hidden away - it is not readily apparen that there is a backlink embedded in the notes.

    Is it possible to simply make the '(Doe et al., 2014, p. 561)' an actual HTML hyperlink? From the note templates page, I see no variable for the URI yet. It might be a useful feature to have the backlinks appear on the notes themselves for folks who may not be exporting to markdown.

    The link information is embedded in the note — there's no reason for it to take up visible space. It's possible there could be other styling options for active annotations. (Note that you can already enable annotation colors from the note menu if you want it to be clearer what's active.)

    We're planning to add the link option to rich-text exports as well.
