Currently adding Aliases while writing the content for the first time might be fine, but say I want to link a word, teeth somewhere to tooth somewhere else.
For now, there are two ways to do this, that is
- Making the Alias at the Rem tooth
- referencing tooth at the place I want to link it.
Whatever method, I use one thing that I have to do for sure is erase the word teeth and then retype it again as an alias.
Workflows can be easier if there is a method to do it easily. Let me suggest one way the feature could work
Say, there is a sentence, “The mandible has the lower set of teeth”. So, I highlight the word teeth here, and press shortcut, “Shift+Ctrl+A” then maybe a dialogue box appears or something of that sort where I search for tooth and select the tooth, upon which the teeth in my current text automatically becomes an alias of the already existing tooth
Result: “The mandible has the lower set of teeth → the teeth being referenced to tooth.
This would make the powerful alias feature more complete since at the moment adding an alias only seems to work one-way.
And for me, I normally figure out something is an alias of something else when I come across it in a text, (going from alias to Rem). Not the way it is optimized for now, which seems to be brainstorming and thinking of what could be a possible alias of a Rem and then adding it. (i.e going from Rem to alias)
A big thank you to @Kamran for assisting in suggesting this feature.
