Hi. I’m having a sweet honeymoon with Tinderbox … and each evening I watch the light from the fire flicker across the room while I organize my notes and questions. I am a complete neophyte. I have attempted to look up most of them. I will try to keep my questions precise. I ask a lot of questions. I am greatly looking forward to learning how to best apply Tinderbox to my needs, and then doing it. So onward: (I will repeat this a few more times, that’s all)
My question is simple: why does copied and pasted text in Tinderbox not function as well as copied and pasted text in other programs? Why are links lost? I had assumed I was doing something wrong, or had missed a setting or secret maneuver, but according to this Tinderbox forum thread stripping links from copied text is by design. This runs deeply counter to my use of computers. Is there no easy work-around?
I copy and paste links dozens of times a day (I am referring to links to the Web). Having Tinderbox remove links from content I’ve temporarily stored on the clipboard is akin to asking me to walk barefoot through brambles — it’s almost a non-starter. I hope I’m missing or mis-understanding something, but the thread I linked to above has been updated fairly recently.
