Daniel,

with your described use case, may be you want to try my „Searched tagged pages“ 
plugin?
I implemented a function „Add pages as link“ there which basically adds the 
found pages into the current page as links.

If you find this useful and / or need some adaptions (e.g. Just the page name 
as link text), let me know and I will review it.

Regards,
Murat

Subject: Re: [Zim-wiki] Shorten the link text automatically

Hi

thanks for the detailed information!
Mhm, my workflow is not the same but I really like to be persuaded for another 
workflow.

My problem is: I have thousends of nested pages. So I can’t remember in advance 
the name of the cards.
That’s the reason why I press Ctrl+L first (without selecting text before). 
After entering a search phrase I get a list of all search results.
With the help of this list in the link dialog I can remember the searched page.
This ist perfect this way for me.

Betreff: Re: [Zim-wiki] Shorten the link text automatically

Typing the text and selecting it (shift+arrow keys) and invoking Ctrl+L brings 
up the insert link window. The field selected automatically is the link to 
field itself. This also has the benefit of confirming that the destination 
exists.
Additionally, It is not always necessary to indicate the full hierarchy of the 
destination - Zim automatically finds the reference so long as the reference 
rests in the same page-sub-page hierarchy.
Am I missing something here?

Hello Mukli

Thanks.
Yes that’s a possibility and I know it.
But an automatically shortened linktext would save a lot of time, because
In 99% of all cases I only need the pagetitle as linktext.

Hello Daniel!

Could you try overwrite the linktext in the Paste Link window? What's wrong 
with that?

Hello

Ctrl & l for inserting a link is great !
But is there a possibility to shorten the linktext ?

An Example :
The link is :
Book :BA :Harry Potter :Page 34

The link text appears the same way. What I’d like to have:
Only the last part, so I mean the page name «Page 34» should appear in the link 
text.

Does anybody have an idea how to «fix» this?

Thanks a lot!

Daniel
