Currently the only way this seems possible is to provide a http url (as in <A HREF=...> .. </A>) in the description field to point to some editable web page.

The link is still clickable on a running machine so it links to the notes.

Obviously this also requires a local webserver and e.g. some wiki software installed to work as required.

This is really poor for such a simple and useful operation. I can't imagine how this would be difficult to fix.

--- Scratch that even that doesn't work

I would also like to see this.

Can we have a developer point of view on this, please?

That problem will be finally fixed in the upcoming 4.1 release.
