Block reference

Hi everyone! I’m new here and still learning and watching a lot of tutorials.

I’m seeing people drag blocks from one page to another and Logseq copies and pastes a reference block. I’ve also seen people copy and paste blocks with keystrokes to make reference blocks.

My logseq doesn’t behave that way. When I drag a block to another page, it cuts and pastes it instead of referencing.

When I copy and paste with keystrokes, it copy and pastes — duplicating the block.

Is this a feature that needs to be enabled?

Thank you!


  • When you try with keystrokes, but without selection:

…does it still copy the whole block?

  • Look also for plugins of relevant functionality.

Amazing. It was the selection issue with the keystoke. When it’s not selected, it copies the block reference. Thank you SO much!

And with the mouse, I found I needed to be holding Option (i’m on a mac).

Thanks for the help!
