Allow multiple links per note
i would like to be able to have multiple links to a note.
for instance i just was authorized for a certain network application and received the credentials by mail. i saved them to cintanotes and added the server-address to the link section of the note. when i am on the note and hit f7 then the correct webpage is started.
however i also received the documentation and a training powerpoint for the software to start learning the tool.
i do not want to add a new note because for me this information is one. i saved the documentation and the powerpoint to a folder in mydocuments and can access them there but it would be nice when i can also go to that folder using the link functionality. then i have one place to start from theren.

And I do not want to add text to my note just to create a link to another note because that link-text add's no true value to the text in the note and distracts when reading it. The text of the note and the link are independant of each other.
Especially when you have multiple links (2 websites, a folder on your computer and about 5 internal links (persons for example) to other notes) you have to add all that textually into your note. That removes the focus on what the note was all about.
Please take a look here: http://roadmap.cintanotes.com/topic/104471-note-to-note-generalize-link-field-adding-power-and-flexibility/
The main tab is similar to the existing design with the difference of having a "remarks" field instead of the "link" field.
The tab "links" offers a big edit field for adding multiple links each saved in its own line, separated by CR+LF.
Compared to the current design the "only" change is the visibility of the two tabs. This design satisfies peoples request not to clutter the UI while at the same timer offers new possibilities. Other tabs might come handy in the future for adding other features. Also it could be possible to allow the user to set the visibilty of tabs. That is all tabs except the first (main) tab can be turned off. When one tab is left only (the main tab) it could be even optimized to don't show a tab row at all. In which case the design would be absolutely identically to the current design.
Instead of labels i used a design approach taken from iOS. As long as the edit field is empty show the label inside the edit field in italic font. As soon as the user enters text, the label-text gets removed. This allows for an even cleaner design, saving space and still allows new users to understand the gui right away.
I like the mockup's.
Personally I would like to see all the fields in one tab (the link fiels can be like 4 rows and a scrollbar when needed).
It does give a lot of room for later additions so taking that in mind this might be a good way to solve it.
Is this still relevant, or does the "Remarks" field resolve the need?
