Linking To Notes and Documents on Your Mac

Until macOS Sonoma comes out there is anther way to link from one note to another using a trick with iCloud Drive sharing. This same trick will still be useful once we have Sonoma to link to Notes from other apps and documents. You can also link to documents and files using this same trick.

    Is or Will there be a way to do this on an iPad? Iā€™ve been wanting this feature for YEARS!

    Suzanne: Did you try using this exact same technique on the iPad? It will probably work.

    Another trick in Notes to paste a link to a document doesn't rely on iCloud or Sharing the document. The trick is to create a URL using the "file:" scheme. With some trickery, you can get Safari to create the URL for you. As with your trick, it doesn't open the document itself, but opens the containing folder and selects the specified document. Happy to provide more detail if interested.

    Ken: Right, that's the opposite. Linking TO a file in a Note rather than linking to a Note. Inconsistent, but works in lots of cases.
