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.

TidBITS Predelivery Service -- Why are you receiving TidBITS today? Well, we know that our readers want the most timely Macintosh information, and now we've come up with the best method to deliver it to you. Starting with this issue, you'll receive TidBITS in its entirety a day before we're finished writing and editing it. We can't explain all the technology to you - it's a mixture of Web Crossing, FileMaker Pro, and a dash of HyperCard, all running on a Mac SE/30 with a blown analog board (and no security problems, thanks to System 7!) that we control via Timbuktu Pro - but we have to launch our patent lawsuits against Research in Motion, Microsoft, and the people who wrote "Back to the Future" before we can go into details. No matter what, rest assured that you'll get the same high quality content before we're even done with it. [ACE]
