Wiki Link Style An optional method lets you type in new links without using the mouse at all, oreven being fully aware of the title you wish to link to. To enable this method, visitthe Auto-Correction tab of Scrivener’s preferences, and turn on "and [[Scrivener links]]" in the Substitutions section. To use this method, while typing in the text you can enter two double-brackets,type in the title of the item you wish to link to, and then close it with a second pair of brackets, as shown. Scrivener will detect what you are trying to do, and if it ﬁnds an exact match to a document, will link it for you automatically. If it does not recognise the text inside the brackets as correlating with an existing title, the New Link sheet will pop-up, giving you the option to either create a new item and place it in the Binder, or via the second tab, “Link to existing document”, navigate to an existing document in the Binder and create a non-literal link. Non-literal links are useful when you wish to link phrases in your text without directly referencing the name of the item you are linking to. Once substitution has been performed, the brackets will be removed.Usually, "wiki link" refers to the CamelBack convention. But a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
As with other substitution types, wiki linking works only on newly typed material. If you have previously typed in double-bracketed words, and then enable the option, you will need to re-bracket them.
