Just thought I’d share, so that others might find it useful.
Take the SDMB as an example of usage. I was about to follow a link and decided I didn’t want to. But I’d already clicked. Usually when this happens I try to ‘cancel’ the action by moving the cursor away from what I’d clicked on and then releasing. On this occasion I happened to move to an edit window. When I let go the url appeared there.
Since this is sort of related . . . sort of . . . can someone tell me how to post links so that I don’t have to include the entire URL? I’m talking about the way most people do it around here–renaming the link with just one word, for example, so when you click on the hyperlinked word it takes you to the website. I swear I used to know how to do that when I had a PC, but now that I have a Mac I can’t find the, um, button.
All I know is that one time I did this to get a photo of RuPaul into Adobe Photoshop, and instead of loading in a separate window it was pasted into the image I was working on. So I went to undo it, and the menu said, “Undo Drag.”
Reminds me of a screenshot I saw once. Someone had an e-mail program open, and there was a message on the screen from Princess Zelda, “Help! I’ve been kidnapped!”. In the screenshot, the cursor was highlighting the “Send Link” menu option.
