Currently links can only be clicked on when a document is in read mode.

Agreed. You can do this for DocLinks, Attachments, etc. Why not URL Links.
2) Grant Lindsay1038 (02 Nov 2007)
Or a ctrl-click (and a tool-tip to that effect,) rather than just a click, when in edit mode, so that you don't accidentally launch the site, when all you wanted to do was position the insertion bar inside the word or url.

Also, how about activating the link as soon as it is recognized as one, assuming it is entered like { Link }
3) Grant Lindsay1038 (02 Nov 2007)
Sorry, that was supposed to be: "... entered like h t t p : / / . . ."

I agree with Grant, the control-click thing would be nice, and I'd like to have that extended to DocLinks as well.

I subconsciously wish for this several times a day; then I Ctrl-E, copy the URL and move on with my day.
6) Sean Harris360 (11 Feb 2008)
I'm voting yes with the provision that it's a Ctrl+Click option. As @2 mentions, if all you wanted to do is add/change a character, clicking on the URL will be a little problematic.
7) Jens Polster2418 (20 Sep 2008)
Promoting for CTRL-Click as well

Considered by Notes development team. May be available soon.
