Dendron supports multiple types of links and formats.
- links to
[local files](assets/think.pdf)(eg. pdfs, psds, etc)
Markdown links can be used for local files and stuff on the internet (websites, images, blogs etc.). The
Markdown Shortcuts: Toggle hyperlink command makes this operation really easy. You can even bind this to a shortcut key combination. We'd recommend using 'cmd/ctrl + K' to get the usual application behavior or 'cmd/ctrl + U' if you want to continue using ctrl+k as part of the usual VSCode combo operation.
Wiki links support autocomplete. To initiate:
- create wikilink brackets and start typing
- link to specific sections of notes using the
- NOTE: relative links will not go to the anchor if clicked on the preview, in that case, it becomes a normal link to the file
- NOTE2: doesn't work when exported through a pod
- use the vscode intellisense shortcut to trigger the autocomplete
When you publish your notes, Dendron shows all children of the note at the bottom.
Dendron has a backlink panel which shows all notes with links to the current note. This will also show up underneath children Links on published pages.
- status: Experimental 🧪
Block references let you link or embed blocks of text into different parts of your notes. This allows you to link and refer to any part of a note, including paragraphs, lists, and tables.
We currently (2021.06.04) do not support, but are working on:
block references in the preview
- auto-complete support for block references
For links to a file format Dendron does not support, you can use the highlight the link and use
> Dendron: Open Link to open the file using your operating system default for that file. This also applies to opening paths to folders.

$vaultName is the name of your vault.
- regular wiki link:
- wiki link with alias:
- relative link:
You can also use cross vault links for note references.
