Automatic Link Suggestions

Do any Zettlekasten softwares use automatic link suggestions between notes? Are they based on anything more sophisticated than shared keywords? Do you find them useful?


  • Keyboard Maestro can be set up to do this based on keywords. I use this a lot. It is far better than my memory of past notes which extends to maybe yesterday. Sorry, I lied, I can even remember the notes I created yesterday without cheating and looking in my archive.

    ZKn3 has support for this. Here is a list of relevant features:

    • recommended links: the software calculates relevance and recommended notes for linking
    • list of tags
    • list of synonyms
    • recommended tags: software suggests alternatives when you enter a tag
