Currently it looks like I cannot use the API to directly go to a node ID obtained from “Copy current item link” shortcut. Is this slated for future API releases?
It’s possible, just more work. The item link has the document id in it, it also has the node id info.
With both ids, you can request
https://dynalist.io/api/v1/doc/read to fetch the document, and then iterate through the nodes to access the one you’re interested in.
