I'm using vim as note-taking software. My notes grow to thousands of lines across 7 different files.
If I was writing code, I would be able to jump to a function definition in a different file with a vim plugin. Or if I open a list of compile errors or grep matches in vim, I could jump to a line in a different file with just two keypresses.
My problem is that I want to jump to one note file from another. This will probably involve tagging the location i wish to jump to.
Hopefully you know what I'm asking now. I can't type in a reference to a second file, (other than using the exact line number file:999 ), but I still need a way to type in references in the files, since I want to organize the same tasks across different note-files.
How can I do this? Would writing in markdown help?
