Changing the link text
You can do one of three things.
- If the link text matches the node name (node title or caption), you can change the link text to something else.
- If the link text does not match the node name, you can change it to some other name which also does not match the node name.
- If the link text does not match the node name, you can change it to match the node name.
A) Changing a matching link text to something else
(For this example, we created a hyperlink to a node named "Modifying hyperlinks" and gave the link the same name as the target node.)
On opening the Hyperlink properties window, the current name of the link text will appear in the Link text field. If TreePad detects that the link text matches that of the target node, the link text will appear faintly in the disabled Link text field as in Figure 1 below.
To edit the link title, click the Custom link text box to enable editing in the Link text field, as shown in Figure 2.
Edit the link text or delete it and paste in another name using standard text editing commands, then click OK to close the box.
B) Changing a non-matching link text without matching it
If TreePad is called to modify a hyperlink whose link text already differs from that of the target node, the Link text field will be enabled for editing when the Hyperlink properties window opens, as in Figure 3. (In this case we had previously amended the Link text to "Modifying my hyperlinks".
Edit the link text as for case (A) above, then click OK to close the box.
C) Changing a non-matching link text to match the node name
From the Link text enabled stage reached in Figures 2 and 3, untick the Custom link text box. The Link text box will be disabled (Figure 4) as in Figure 1, but this time no link text will appear.
Clicking the Custom link text box will have no effect when this stage is reached. Click OK to close the window and the link text will now match that of the target node. To edit the link text again, reopen the Hyperlink properties window and the Link text field should appear as in Figure 1.
