This feature doesn’t seem to be working for me and I’m hoping for some guidance. I’m a new user (just about a week), so it is highly likely I’m missing something obvious. I’m using v8.7.0 (b464).
If I understand correctly, the intended behavior of Back Links is to create an inbound ZipLink instead of an outbound ZipLink. e.g.:
Typing [[Note B]] in the text pane of Note A would create an outbound link from Note A to Note B.
Typing [] in the text pane of Note A would create an inbound link from Note B to Note A.
I have been able to create many (200+) ZipLinks. However, I am unable to successfully create BackLinks.
When I first attempted this, I typed “[[<” and noticed that it provided a list of the notes where titles started with “<”.
I figured the fact that I had notes which begin with “<” might be part of the problem and be tripping up TinderBox. I renamed those notes, but now when I type “[[<” TinderBox does not display a list of any notes at all. When I proceed to type the name of the note I want to create an inbound link from and end it with “>]]”, it just creates a new note that starts with “<”. E.g., when I type “[]”, it creates a note called “<Note B” instead of creating an inbound link from “Note B”.
My primary use case is to create links from my notes to a note containing the source (e.g., a book title) living in a different container. Please note, though, that I have also attempted BackLinking notes in the same container, with no success.
I read the reference material from @mwra that you provided a link to, but wasn’t able to replicate what I think the BackLink behavior is supposed to be.
I appreciate any guidance!
