I recently discovered nvALT’s ability to link notes by simply including the name of another nvALT note with double brackets [[like this]]. As a result, I’ve started creating links between notes and I’m loving it. For instance, I’ve got links between notes that have related legal text and forms. I’ve also got another note listing every case I have set for trial and the trial date. This gives me a quick way to make sure I don’t double book myself when the lady in the black robe is bearing down on me. Now these lists are linked to the notes with all the details related to the particular cases.
For instance: [[Donald v. Daffy]] – October 1–15, 2013
I’m just starting to wrap my head around this trick which I discovered here via a link by my pal Brett Terpstra.
