Add Hyperlinks to TextExpander Snippets

You can include a clickable link in a TextExpander snippet. Here's how:

  1. Create a new snippet.
  2. From the Content menu (just above the snippet body), choose Content: Formatted Text, Picture.
  3. Put a full URL in the snippet body, such as http://www.smilesoftware.com/
  4. Control-click the link text and choose Make Link from the pop-up menu.

After you've made the link, you can replace the visible URL with other text. Just put your cursor in the active link text and make changes as you would with any other text.

Send Article to a Friend

Ah, to return home after an extended tour of Boston and the Northeast, complete with an ongoing bout of the Martian Death Flu. There's nothing like returning to hundreds of messages that I didn't read while on the road (mostly mailing lists, luckily) and to a foot of snail mail. In the confusion, I managed to accidentally send two personal messages (and a quick apology) to all 9,600+ people on the TidBITS mailing list, resulting in a number of messages from people who were relieved to see that even we so-called net experts can screw up royally from time to time, proving that we're only human. Or perhaps we're actually sophisticated artificial intelligences? [ACE]
