When you think of note-taking apps, your mind probably ventures to simplistic tools that make it possible for you to jot down shopping lists and basic to-dos. Sometimes, however, you might want a list that includes a few more options, such as formatting, images, bulleted lists, and maybe even links to other lists.

That’s right. Imagine you have a basic shopping list, as well as lists for other categories. You might create shopping lists for:

  • General items
  • Groceries
  • Gifts
  • Work
  • School

The list of lists goes on. You might even create your General shopping list and want to link to the others from within, so you don’t have to constantly hunt through your collection of lists. By doing this, you can make your shopping adventures a bit less chaotic.

If that sounds like something you could use, you’re in luck because Apple added the feature to Notes in MacOS Sonoma. Linking to other notes is very simple to do and makes for quick access to whatever notes you want to link.

Keep in mind, this is different than adding a link to an external website. When you add a link to another note, if you click on the link, it simply switches from the current note to the one you clicked on.

There are two ways to add links to notes, and I’m going to show you both.

How to add a list from the Add Link pop-up

What you’ll need: To make use of this new feature, you must have MacOS Sonoma installed on your device. I’ll demonstrate this on an iMac running the latest version of the OS.

The first thing to do is open notes, which you can do from either the Dock or the Launchpad. I’m going to assume you’ve already created a group of lists that you might want to link to. I’ve created the shopping lists above for my example.

Next, open the note for which you want to add the notes.

If you haven’t already created your notes, do so now.

Click in the body of the note and then use the Cmd+K keyboard combination to open the Add Link window. When the Add Note window opens, type the title of the note you want to add.

Then, when it appears in the drop-down, select it, give it an optional name, and click OK to add it to the list.

You can also access this pop-up by right-clicking (or two-finger tapping) in the body of the note and selecting Add Link.

How to add from a list of lists

1. Open the note in question 

Again, open the note for which you want to add links.

2. Add from a list

Click on the location in the note where you want to add the link to another note. Type >> and a drop-down of lists will appear. Locate and click the link you want to add and it will automatically appear in your note.

You can select from any note you’ve already added.

Once you’ve added links to notes, they’ll appear in your note. If you want to open any of those linked notes, just click on the link and that note will open.

And that’s how easy it is to link from one note to another in Apple Notes. This feature will come in very handy when you want quick access to other notes and don’t want to have to search through a long list before you find the one you’re looking for.
