- Dear All,
I wonder if you can help?
I have a text file with lots of file links (hyperlinks to the internet) of the form http://..........
When I use the convert to html, these links do not become hyperlinks but remain as text. Is there a clip or a command somewhere that would automatically convert these text links to hyperlinks so that clicking on them would take me to the website.
Can anyone help?
Waiting to hear,

A couple of answers...
1. You know that you can activate the URL without converting it to
html first? Go with the cursor to the URL you want to jump to and
select F9, or (controlled by Quick Open Links in the Tools menu)
double-click or CTRL+double-click the URL. Read the message in the
status bar for clarification - if your cursor hovers over Quick Open
2. You could use a regular expression for this...
Open up the replace box and type the following (be sure to check the
Regular Expression box first).
Reg. Expr.: http://[a-z.0-9]*
Replace with: <a href="&">&</a>
If you click Replace all, all links should be converted.
(BTW: I recommend you test your regular expressions with a backup
3. You can build a clip from this as well (I take a chance now), if
you feel the need to discuss this, sign up for the clips-list as
^!Replace "http://[a-z\.0-9]*" >> "<a href="&">&</a>" RAWI
