How to link a note to another note? This may be very easy to do but I can't figure out how to do it, despite much head scratching and help reading.

The goal is that I have two existing notes, A and B. I would like to create a clickable link in note A that would open note B.

To the best of my knowledge that is not currently possible

It's possible. 

Suppose you want a hyper-link text in A to point to B. Just go to B and click the uppermost overflow menu icon.

Select "Copy Location As: URL..."

Then paste that in as a hyperlink for whatever text you want in A linking to B.

I thought I had tried that approach without success. My (apparently incorrect) recollection is that I ended up with the link definition in the note but it wasn't clickable. Ah, well, I'm able to do it now. Thanks for your help!

I also posted in the Logos Notes group. Got a slightly more detailed answer there: https://faithlife.com/posts/2684819

In that group I also posted the reason I'm researching this -- I'm doing an informal proof-of-concept for implementing Zettelkasten using Logos Notes. https://faithlife.com/posts/2693300 Zettelkasten is a workflow with some info structures underneath it. https://zettelkasten.de/ is one place for info.

I guess any follow-up posts should be over in the group.

I had a very similar question so I guess I will post it here.  I do this all the time, except I use L4 instead of URL.  Also, after you select your method once, you can use ctrl+alt+c every time afterwards.  But anyway, the problem is that it copies a bunch of unnecessary information: 

logos4:NotesTool;EditNoteId=9fc0554ce4944b02a7d52f0b07b4c57d;IsEditorFullSize=true;IsSidebarExpanded=false;IsTrashExpanded=false; SearchQuery=kings_israel_judah;ShowFullAnchorText=true;Sort=modifiedDesc;ViewMode=full

So what I do is that I first paste this into notepad and then only copy up to the second semicolon (logos4:NotesTool;EditNoteId=9fc0554ce4944b02a7d52f0b07b4c57d) and then use this for the link. I do this every time I link a note to another note, which is quite often.  So I was wondering if there was a way to only copy the relevant information without the intermediate step?

Thanks

If all of that information is embedded and hidden in a hyperlink (like this), why does it matter from the user's perspective?

Maybe at the end of the day it doesn't matter and I'm just being OCD.  Or maybe all of those little flags will affect how a note is opened when you click on it.  Or maybe I just want all of my notes to conform to some normal "standard" and not whatever happened to be going on when I copied the link (for instance I just happened to be searching on "kings Israel Judah" and I don't want that permanently embedded in the link). Either way it just does not seem to be the "correct" way to link a note to another note and I would like to find a way to disable it if possible.
