Topic Links now allow Open in New Window

March 29th, 2016

The Link to Topic screen now has a new option “Open in new window”.
This lets you force the linked topic to be opened in a new window or tab.

topiclink-newwindow

Remember:

  • By default, all internal topic links open in the same window.
    This behaviour can now be changed using the new option.

  • All external website links always open in a new window.

Fix: Cursor position got lost after inserting images or links

March 22nd, 2016

Just fixed a problem in the Topic Editor that could be quite annoying for some people:

After inserting an image using the Image Manager or after inserting a topic/website link, the cursor position in the topic editor was lost. This caused unnecessary scrolling and searching before one could continue editing again.

After today’s fixes, the cursor nicely returns right after the freshly insert image or link.


New: link to anchors within a topic

July 4th, 2014

By popular demand: it is now possible to link to a section within another topic, using anchor links.

Here’s how this works:

First, define an anchor id in the destination topic

Define the anchor you want to link to is done by setting an ID on a header or paragraph, like so:

h2(#multiline). Multiline Code Blocks

or

p(#multiline). Showing blocks of code with multiple lines can be done… bla bla …

Then, create the link to the defined anchor

Create the topic link like you normally do in the Link to Topic screen, but now, also fill in the topic “Anchor” field with the ID you defined earlier (without the hash # sign!).

anchor-links

After clicking Insert, the inserted Textile code will look like this:

“Here’s how to display blocks of code”:{TOPIC-LINK+code-blocks+multiline}

Enjoy!
