Link Items, as in zotero?

With Zotero one has the option to link metadata items directly, not through a common tag. Is anything planned in this direction for Tropy?

(as an example, this feature could be useful to link different editions of the same book publication, if you want to keep them apart as separate items)

We’ve been discussing a few scenarios for linking items, but we don’t have any immediate plans to implement the feature. Happy to hear your thoughts on the benefits of such linking though. Right now, I would probably ‘link’ different editions using either a list or tag; adding a direct link to the item would give us a ‘short-cut’ to navigate from one item to another – but this seems only helpful if there are clear one-to-one relationships between the items Furthermore, if we link items internally in a project, are those relationships something you’d want to be able to export? Tropy’s internal ids are not helpful outside of Tropy (they are unique only within their project).
