4.4 Handling links
Org provides methods to create a link in the correct syntax, to
insert it into an Org file, and to follow the link.
- C-c l
- Store a link to the current location. This is a global command (you
must create the key binding yourself) which can be used in any buffer to
create a link. The link will be stored for later insertion into an Org
buffer (see below).
- C-c C-l
- Insert a link. This prompts for a link to be inserted into the buffer. You
can just type a link, or use history keys <up> and <down> to access
stored links. You will be prompted for the description part of the link.
When called with a C-u prefix argument, file name completion is used to
link to a file.
- C-c C-l (with cursor on existing link)
- When the cursor is on an existing link, C-c C-l allows you to edit the
link and description parts of the link.
- C-c C-o or mouse-1 or mouse-2
- Open link at point.
- C-c &
- Jump back to a recorded position. A position is recorded by the
commands following internal links, and by C-c %. Using this
command several times in direct succession moves through a ring of
previously recorded positions.
