Active links to web addresses


#1

Hi, I’m using Findings V 2.0.6. I wonder if you could add a feature where a word of choise in the notebook can be made to an active web-link?
Example a bacteria strain from Streatagene: SCS110
This one “SCS110” could cover the teadious seqrch results from the Agilent web page, being:
https://www.agilent.com/search/?Ntt=SCS110

I guess, many users would appreciate such addition and find it useful.

Indeed, at the moment, links can only be created by using a URL as part of the text. In your example, if you use ‘https://www.agilent.com/search/?Ntt=SCS110’ as part of the text in an entry, it will become clickable. An improvement would indeed be to allow the text of a link to be different from the actual URL. It’s on our todo list, though I can’t promise yet when it will become possible. I’ll post on this topic when it’s available.

Many thanks for your feedback!
