Re: [tomboy-list] Feature Request: Hidden URIs/Names for links

Hey all,
I get the same thing when  I drag files from nautilus.
It happens no matter what type of file it is (I tried, tar.gz, jpg, exe, .conf, .doc) I noticed something else when the filename has spaces in it. the second link (in the form of /home/user/My file here) ends up only linked till 'My'. anything after the space is just plain text, while the one that says file://home/user/My file here
is just fine.

Hi Andreas,

This is quite strange. Tomboy just inserts whatever URIs are dropped. What program are you dragging these links from?

well suited for this purpose, since it can organize these kind of things
in a wiki-like manner.

However, the current handling of the links is a bit strange. If you drop
a file into a note, a link is created. For me it is something like


It's confusing to have a two line link, and I can't find a reason why
one would need the second line. Or even the first. Deleting either one
of these lines still leaves a working link.

I'd like to propose two ways of doing this:

a) Hide the uri. Dropping a file creates a popup asking for the link
b) insert a link icon (a mini-thumbnail or an icon from the internet
page) + a link text that is attached to the icon, editable in the note

thanks for reading and best regards,
