Export behavior of text to text links
Mar 13th, 2014, 1:09pm
 
In Mark A's thorough TBx reference is this remark about linking to text selections.

I wonder if anyone has explored the behavior/nature of exporting these?

Ah, this is a dead feature - or so I believe. It had no official funeral so I don't know in which version it stopped working. My my hunch is it's not likely to come back.

I can see the merit of target anchors for action-code types wanting to retrieve link predicate values. But, as TB works best with small notes (i.e. not a large amount of $Text), there's arguably less need to scroll text on switching to a new note.

I've updated the above-mentioned aTbRef article to reflect the status quo.
