Right-click (control-click on the Mac) menu item that will set a link equal to whatever text is highlighted, such as www.mysite.com. Right-click > Quick Link > BAM! you're done. No annoying dialog boxes.
For example, if your selection is http://www.mysite.com, the command will give you a link like
If your link is an email address like email@example.com, the command will give you a link like
Also, if your link looks like www.mysite.com, the link will add the "http://" to the beginning of the link.
The command is accessiblle from the Commands menu and also from the right-click contextual menu. It's a real time-saver when you have some text that has links in it, and all you need to do is to set the link equa to the actual textual link.
