Is it possible - in Logos 6 - to create a note (next to a verse) with a link to another verse?

If someone knows how to do this could you please explain.

I can create notes - but if I add, lets say, a related or contrasting scripture reference in the note, it doesn't automatically become a link to that verse.

I'd like for that scripture reference to become a link that will take me to that verse.

I'd like to create a sort of chain of Bible reference links in my notes. That way, all I would have to do is follow the links in my notes, and it would take me through my subject of study.

Any help the Community can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

IT should automatically become a link although you may need to put a space after the reference to get the conversion to a link. If you are not using standard notation and abbreviations it will not become a link. If you post a screenshot of a case that is not a link, perhaps we can see the problem.

Hello,

Thanks for taking the time to help me out a little here. As you can see in the screenshot - when I hover over my note (upper left hand) the scripture reference (in the note) is not a link. Seems to me that they used to become links. That's what I'm trying to do. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Got it. No in the titles they will not become links but they will in the body of the note. Does that correspond to what you are seeing?

Well - in the body or content of the note is where I wrote "See "repent" (G3340) in Matthew 3:2", but the scripture reference doesn't turn into a link.

Isn't it supposed to?

did you put a space after it, to let the editor check whether it's supposed to be a link and then link it?

Are you checking the link in the actual note file, or in the pop-up? In my experience it only works in the actual note file.

did you put a space after the reference? It should create the link when you enter the space, telling it that the reference is complete.

This in reply to both Reuben and MJ,

Yes I put a space after the reference in the note file - and it does create a link in the actual note file itself.

But that's not what I'm after. What I'd really like to do is create a link that can be accessed from the pop-up of my note.

I hope this makes it clearer what I'm trying to do. And I'm hoping that this is possible already. If not, maybe I could suggest this as an addition to the notes feature - because I would really like to be able to do this.

Thanks.
