Xpad - Hyperlinks in notes
This specification describes the feature of hyperlinks in notes.
1. Add a manual tagging feature.
The user has to select the text , and choose from the list of tags (bold, underline,italic, etc), the option hyperlink. If the text is recognized as a hyperlink (due to the format of the selected text), it will be automatically suggested as the hyperlink, the user has to click only on [Ok]. If not, the user has the ability to change the text in the textbox and clicking [Ok], or [Cancel].
Each hyperlink protocol needs to call the default application to open the hyperlink.
This solution gives more flexibility, but more mouse clicks too, in comparison to solution 2.
Found on Internet: Use a gtk_text_
2. Automatic set hyperlinks when http://, https://, file://, ftp://, smb:// are recognized.
This has no user intervention, but no flexibility to change something either.
In fact, solution 1 and 2 should be configurable in the preferences.
