Basic Links

A note-to-note link at note level, i.e. not from within the note's text ($Text). It links the entire note with another note, or a text selection in another note. Basic links occur only within the current document, i.e. they can only begin or end at a note in the current TBX.

Originals and aliases export their own basic links (i.e. aliases can differ), but if an alias has no in/outbound basic links it will export those of the original.

Tinderbox provides many ways to generate basic links:

Basic links can point to a location in the destination note's $Text.

Prototype assignments are effected as a form of link—see more.

Basic links can be used to self-link.
