Bookmarks are shortcuts to anywhere in Dynalist. They are comparable to bookmarks you save in your browser, but more powerful.

Similar to browser bookmarks, bookmarks have sensible default names when you add them, but you can give it any name you want.

Things you can bookmark

  1. Any document;
  2. Any list;
  3. Search results within a document;
  4. Search results within a list;
  5. “Search anywhere” results.

Bookmarking documents

In the file pane, you can right click on the document title and choose “Add to bookmarks”. Alternatively, click on the ☆ icon in front of its title when a document is open.

Bookmarking lists

In the item menu, you can choose “Add to bookmarks” to bookmark it. Once you zoom into a list, there’s also ☆ icon in front if its title that you can click on to bookmark it.

Bookmarking search results

When you’re searching, a ☆ icon will appear in front of the search bar. Click on it to bookmark the search results. The default name of the bookmark will be “Search results for search term in list title”.
