Link within a Note

I know I can link a full note in another note, but is there a way to link part of my note in another part of the same note?
If it's not possible now, it would be a very useful feature to have!

    Suppose a have a note called "Test Note" and I want to link to this note from within another note, I have to create a link that looks like this: [[Test Note]].

    However, if I click on the link, nothing happens...

    +1 I would love to see this feature! I sometimes have long notes and like to reference information elsewhere in the note. Linking within a note would be fantastic!

    Hi Everybody,

    with Bear 1.6 is now possible to link a specific header inside a note.
    To quickly generate a link to a header, click/tap on H1-6 on the note and select "Copy link to here".

    Bear will copy a link like this one in your clipboard

    Thank you. I’ll test it out.

    Would it be possible in the future to support linking syntax like this?


    That would be easier than having to copy a link from the original header.

    Yes, make header linking work with wiki links was indeed a possible enanchment of this feature. I'm not 100% sure we'll be able to make it work at the moment, but we'll try.
