Create cross reference links in Evernote (OSX)

Create cross reference links in Evernote (OSX)

Create links within a single note.




Warning: The generated result (a link + styled anchor) will be written to your clipboard.

See a demo here

  • In Evernote client, select text that you would like to set as "destination", right click and select "Service -> Create Cross Reference". This selected text will be your "anchor".
  • You will be asked to enter a "label" for this destination (default value should be fine most of the time).
  • Next you will be asked to enter the text for the generated link.
  • The selected text will be replaced by a generated link and a styled anchor.
  • Feel free to move the generated link to anywhere you want within the same note. Clicking on this link should take you to your anchor.


You can modify create-cross-reference-links.js to style the generated link/anchor as you like.
