Subject: Links to external targets with (or despite) org-ref
Date: Sun, 19 Feb 2023 16:38:55 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <Y/JCjwaOXWbO4vIG@kamaloka> (raw)

Hi everybody

I'm looking to create labels/links to specific text positions in org
files (not line number, not header).

I know that [[file:~/path_to_file::target]] can be used to jump to
<<target>>. That would be fine and works for me -- IF I write the link

However, org-ref which I use for citations seems to overwrite the
default behaviour of org-store-link and org-insert-link. So when the
point is on <<target>> and org-store-link is called (C-c l), I get a
prompt "Store link with (default org-ref-store-ref)". No alternatives
are offered when TAB is hit. Hiting RET saves the link as
"Crefrange:target". A corresponding org-insert-link (C-c C-l) produces
a link of the form [[Crefrange:target]] which, when in another file,
of course leads nowhere ("search failed"). How to get the file name
into these links without manually rewriting the link?

I couldn't find anything on this issue in the org-ref manual or on the

Thanks for help,
