No Issue Next Week -- We won't be publishing TidBITS next Monday to give everyone on the staff a break, particularly Jeff Carlson, who's just finishing iMovie 3: Visual QuickStart Guide and looking forward to a relaxing week culminating with his birthday on May 30th. Also, Tonya and Tristan and I will be driving to Tonya's sister's graduation from Oberlin College; though we don't have an iPod, the iTunes Music Store has inspired me to put together a couple of MP3 CDs of our favorite music to play in an MP3-capable portable CD player we received as a present a few years ago. Look for our next issue on 02-Jun-03. [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/

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.
