How do the specimen links inside the Notes area work? You can create hyperlinks from one specimen to another when you use the notes area.  This is the area provided at the bottom of several of the specimen data entry views for typing word processing-like notes.

When a hyperlink has been created, you can double-click the item to jump to the referenced specimen.

Press the Insert specimen link button to create a hyperlink.
This snapshot shows an embedded hyperlink to another specimen record.

Double-clicking it will jump to the Agastache barberi record. ...............................................

When making a duplicate specimen record using the propagate button, you can add hyperlinks between the old and new records by checking the Include links in notes box.
