Can anyone else drag a link from a web browser to a composer window and
have the link appear? I just get the text of the link. This used to work
in Evo 1.4.x/gtkhtml-3.0.x (just like dragging a link to a gnome-
terminal except that evo would also activate it as a link and make it
the link color).

Evolution doesn't make it a link (at least for plain text mails). It
just displays anything that "looks like" an URL in blue. That's the
Composer part. (Haven't used 1.4 for long now and never used HTML
format, so the former might not be 100% correct.)

Displaying (reading) mails is similar: Anything that "looks like" a link
will be displayed blue and for the users convenience a clickable link.
Text/plain does not know hyperlinks...

That said: Yes, seems like the Composer is broken in this respect.

I bugzilla'd it but it was marked as a wishlist instead of a bug, which
seems a little strange to me.

What is the bug really about? Which number? From your first sentence, it
felt like a wish to me too: Inserting links (different url/title) in
HTML mails.


Bug is and I've
attached screen shots to make it more clear. 


So does this work for anyone else or is it a bug?
