Apologies, I think I’ve missed something here. It’s about backlinks between DT docs (not links to outside DT). I have two issues.
When I “Copy Item Link” and paste it into another DT doc (e.g. RTF) all I get (now) is the DT Item Link extension and not a clickable link. Before (up until an hour ago!) I would get a clickable link, which was the title of the DT doc and not the DT Item Link extension. Any ideas? This is happening when I paste item links into Rich Text Files.
I turned WikiLinks to Automatic with [[…]] toggled on, but one thing I notice is that I can only WikiLink to DT items in the same database and not other databases. Is this correct? And further, how do WikiLinks distinguish between two documents with the same title (since it’s the title that’s being linked and not the DT item link)?
On #2 I wanted to use WikiLinks because I can’t seem to paste DT item links from PDFs, RTFs, etc… INTO a plain text file. Does anyone have any other workarounds to get clickable item backlinks (backlinks to other DT docs) INTO plain text files?
I did look on the forums but the advice seems to be mixed and a bit dated, so here I am…Thanks so much, as always
It was working for me too up until two hours ago. I’ve been making these backlinks forever. I think I must have done something.
Retracing my steps all I did was turn auto WikiLinks on AND I played around with edit>substitutions> smart links. Could it have been that? (btw, I still don’t understand what Smart Links are. They’re not mentioned in the DT Handbook or Help menu).
