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.

BBEdit 5.0.1 Update -- Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 5.0.1, an update to the commercial version of the high-powered text editor. In addition to a handful of bug fixes (see "HTML Enhancements Highlight BBEdit 5.0" in TidBITS-454), changes in this version include the function scanner now supporting JavaScript (whether embedded in an HTML document or in a standalone file), additional support for inserting include files and placeholder tags, improved image tag updating, and the addition of several HTML-oriented scripting commands. Version 5.0.1 also adds a generous selection of tweaks and minor feature enhancements. Owners of BBEdit 5.0 can download the 1 MB update for free from the Bare Bones Web site or a number of mirror sites. [GD]
