    Sadly, I can't seem to figure out how to add a net "link" into a line of text.

    For instance:


    Selecting the entire text line and then using the "Quote" button doesn't reveal the underling code.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi CBB,
    If you just drag the curser over the text that you want to link to a URL so it is highlighted then click on the 7th button (A chain link with a green + sign.) above the text input box it opens a window where you can type or paste in a URL. I find you need to have some text after the highlighted part otherwise it changes the colour of the text you type from that point.

    Les.

    Got it. Thanks a ton, Les. Again, sadly, I've seen those 2 icons for a long time but never bothered to investigate their purpose... :banghead:.
