The Automatic Hyperlink functionality automatically converts user-typed text containing a URL into a valid, clickable web hyperlink. Currently, Automatic Hyperlink supports conversion on the following types of links:
- file and FTP URLs
- www URLs without a protocol
- email address URLs
Using Automatic Hyperlinking
To use Automatic Hyperlink, type text that begins with http://, https://, www., and email addresses into the document. After you press space, tab, or enter immediately following this text, EditLive! will convert the text into a link. If you don't want the text to be a clickable hyperlink, simply press Ctrl+Z (or alternatively, choose Undo from the Edit menu) after the link conversation has occured. This will undo the conversion of the text into a hyperlink but will not undo your typing.
