10.3: Paste web content with links from Safari to TextEdit
Authored by: heliosnorf on Nov 03, '03 06:30:35PM

Wow - that's pretty neat.. I wonder - how do you create your own links like this in text files? It seems like there should be some way to do it directly within TextEdit.

As a work around - you can make a simple web page which contains the link, open it with Safari, and copy & paste the link to TextEdit.. But that seems like more work than you should have to go to.

Anyone know how to do it directly?

Use iChat

An easier way to create your own clickable URLs in TextEdit is by using iChat.

- Open iChat
- From the File menu, select 'New Chat'
- Type a description for your link in the window that opens
- From the Edit menu, select 'Select All' and then 'Add Hyperlink...'
- Type the URL for your link in the sheet that opens and click OK
- Cut and paste the link in a RTF TextEdit document

VoilĂ ! :)
