Free Macworld Expo Passes -- TidBITS readers interested in attending the upcoming Macworld Expo in San Francisco from 07-Jan-03 through 10-Jan-03 can get free exhibits-only passes (normally $15 to $35) from our friends at Peachpit Press. To request passes (you'll receive two per request, so bring a friend), send an email message to <email@example.com> with your name and postal address. The passes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and Peachpit must receive all requests by 20-Dec-02. And hey, if you take advantage of this offer, stop by the Peachpit booth to thank them, check out their books, and chat with authors like Adam Engst, Jeff Carlson, and Glenn Fleishman. [ACE]
Add Hyperlinks to TextExpander Snippets
You can include a clickable link in a TextExpander snippet. Here's how:
- Create a new snippet.
- From the Content menu (just above the snippet body), choose Content: Formatted Text, Picture.
- Put a full URL in the snippet body, such as http://www.smilesoftware.com/
- 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.
