I notice that both Evernote and Ultra Recall allow you to copy links to their items, and these links can be pasted into another program - enabling the user to navigate to the Evernote or Ultra Recall items from that other program.

The Evernote link uses the “evernote” protocol, and Ultra Recall uses the “ur” protocol.  Examples below:


I am wondering what other outliners / PIMs support this.  It does open up possibilities.  For example, Evernote could be used as a universal collector, and other outliners could link to a collected item without having to import the data into its own database.

Hi Jim,

Just to ask, how does one go about this in Ultra Recall? I tried the usual methods, and can’t seem to get it to work or find it in the help file.

Thanks in advance!
Best, /Pavi

You can also do it in Surfulater and ConnectedText.

You can do this with TheBrain. And in OneNote you can not only make links to specific pages of notes, but to individual paragraphs in those notes.

I think you can also do this in Zoot, but am unsure. Will test it out when I get to the office.

Select the item you want and click (on the menu bar) Item / Copy Item Command-Line; you may have to fully expand the Item menu the first time. There’s also keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Shift-I. You can then paste the result to the program from which you will be linking from.

In UR, you can also create a Windows desktop shortcut to the item through the same menu.
