With EmEditor v10, Ctrl-Click can be used to open a URL (in additional to double-click). Has this feature been removed? I can’t find it in the Active String tab. Thanks.June 8, 2017 at 11:42 am #21903
Please go to the Customize dialog box, select Active String page, select URLs in the Type, Left Double-Clicked in the Event, and select Open URL with Default Program from the Action drop-down list.
Then, select Left-Clicked in the Event, and select None from the Action.June 8, 2017 at 6:29 pm #21911
Thanks for your answer. I see double-click works this way; just wonder if left-click while holding Ctrl still works in v16.9, the same manner as in v10.June 9, 2017 at 3:21 pm #21926
It should work. Please try it.June 9, 2017 at 8:17 pm #21928
Yes I tried many times, but unfortunately it just didn’t work. A clean portable version was also used in the test.
To clarify, the expected behavior is:
1. Double-click and Ctrl-click both open a URL.
2. Single-click doesn’t.
This was my favorite configuration with v10 for a long time.
With v16.9, it’s easy to make double-click work and single-click not work. But Ctrl-click is not working here and I fail to find the configuration for it.
Any insight is welcome. Thanks.June 9, 2017 at 9:05 pm #21929
Wow, finally got the reason. “CTRL + Click to Select a Word check box” has to be enabled for Ctrl-click to open an URL (w/o selecting any word).
This feels a little vague. Could they have separate options? Thanks.
