I also sometimes have issues accidentally clicking links.  The most common 
example is: I have a page with lots of links open, I don't have Zim as my 
active application but it is visible in the background, I click on Zim to 
make it the active application and accidentally click a link.  Links are a 
very important feature to me so I don't want them deactivated and I like 
that they automatically create.  My idea is a user option for something 
like Ctrl+[click] to follow links.  It might also be nice to configure 
this independently for different types of links ie: internal Zim page 
links, Web URL, local file system links, network file system links, etc.

Re: [Zim-wiki] turning off auto-turning urls into links






thanks Jaap.  They were off in the preferences dialog. 

The problem I think was my assumption that if follow_on_enter=false 
they would be unclickable also. 

I now understand your policy is to have them always clickable.
(I would prefer it to be possible to make them unclickable
as I have some pages with many links just there for information
 but it is just a small preference).

Is there any way to turn off auto-turning urls into links?

When I type a url, automatically creates a link, and if my cursor goes 
near, it becomes a hand and If I happen to press enter anywhere nearby, it 
will follow the link.  For me this is unwanted behaviour. 

I already have:
    autolink_files=False
    follow_on_enter=False

I guess urls aren't covered under autolink_files, 
but follow_on_enter seems to be ignored also.


No this can not be turned off, URLs should always be clickable. The only 
exception is URLs in a verbatim formatted text.

However the "follow_on_enter" should prevent opening them on <Enter>. Just 
tested here and seems to works fine in zim 0.60.

May I suggest checking if you really have this option set in the 
preferences dialog?

Regards,

Jaap
