In respect of Jane's comment about hyperlinks, I may be using the wrong phraseology but I am looking for the ability to create a link in a document (Todo list, WP document, etc) that lives within my system to another document (or place within my document) - where this latter document is a fH file and the specific place is a specific record.
So if I have a plain HTML document (sample.html) in the same directory as another file, then within that second file something like file://sample.html
(suitably wrapped) will create a link within that second file which when clicked will take me to that first file (if necessary opening the appropriate application - in this case my default browser). file://sample.html#SectionOne
will even take me to a specific place in that first file. It does not have to be an html file. Within a spreadsheet I can "create a hyperlink" to another spreadsheet or Word-processor document .
With some applications, however, this can get tricky. The way I have my Thunderbird email client configured is that all emails within say the inbox live in a single file, so creating a link to a specific email looks impossible. Thunderbird however has an addin Thunderlink
that enables you to do just that. So I wonder if the same concept might be used to create the guts of a means to populate the "create hyperlink" functionality within other applications, but for links to records within an fH project?
(Records in FH are identifiable so you can specify persistent links. Unfortunately I don't think you could easily specify a persistent link to a specific fact (say a residence fact), because if you then added an earlier (residence) fact your reference to (residence) would get disturbed.)
