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.

PageSpinner 2.1 Released

Send Article to a Friend

Optima System has released PageSpinner 2.1, the latest version of its shareware, text-oriented HTML authoring tool. Version 2.1 offers significant performance improvements and a revved-up text editor, along with support for HTML 4.0 and simultaneous multi-browser previews, backup commands, improved scriptability, and code-free assistance creating roll-over images and new windows via JavaScript. PageSpinner also comes with good online help and sensible examples ideal for Web authors who aren't afraid of HTML tags, but want a friendly environment that can both introduce Web authoring concepts and support sophisticated development. (We looked at PageSpinner 2.0.1 in "Spinning the Web Part I: Trade-offs and PageSpinner" in TidBITS 384.) PageSpinner is still $25 shareware; version 2.1 is a free upgrade to users who registered PageSpinner 2.x after 01-Jun-97, and other owners may qualify for a $15 upgrade pricing through March of 1999. PageSpinner 2.1 is a 1.8 MB download.
