Hi! I’m new here, new to Sanity and would like to get some help.I’m trying to create textual documents which can have inline references to other such textual documents. What I managed to do so far is to insert a reference, but as a separate block, not inline.

Would it be possible to insert a reference to another document inline?

If i understand correctly, instead of making a reference, you need to add the field as
type: 'your-other-document'
this will load the document fields inside your document.

Thank you for the quick response.Unfortunately, I’m not sure I understand what you mean.
I am happy with references, I don’t want to load the whole content of the other document, its name is enough. I would like to be able to insert such a reference in the editor as an inline element, part of the text block.

I was thinking about using annotations as well, but it requires to select some text first, which is against the use case. So, inserting would be much better.

key in the block type object to make it inline
