When I click on a citation like this:


I get to choose from a list of citation actions which include adding notes.

When I follow the link below, it only brings up a buffer that shows the relevant bibtex entry.


Is there any way I could choose to access or notes through the link above?

  • What function are you using to open notes?

  • I use helm-bibtex to search for the relevant reference and press <F8> to open notes. Not sure what function citation actions calls under the hood.

You have to specify the notes function for the follow property.

(org-cite-register-processor 'my-org-cite-follow
  :follow (lambda (datum _arg)
             (list (org-element-property :key datum)))))

(setq org-cite-follow-processor 'my-org-cite-follow)
