Change the direction of a link

Is there a way to change the direction of a link once it is set? Or, do you need to delete the link and recreate it?

This – delete and recreate.

Thanks. That is what I thought but wanted to make sure.

Tinderbox links always have a direction and are uni-directional. You already found how you change this.

A simpler method (for the user!) to make such changes has been requested but whilst that might be simple for basic notes, text notes need an anchor in the source note’s $Text so reversing an link means putting that anchor … where? Or does it become a basic link instead. These are the hidden wrinkles to such simple requests.

Note that when making a link, in the Create Link pop-over you can chose which direction the resulting link uses.

Yup, thanks. Understood.
