I created a line of text, and I wanted a specific word in there to be linked to another object. my feeling was that I should be able to select some text in a sentance, then convert that into an object, or link to an existing object. Instead of using the selected word, it highlighted the entire sentance and converted it to an object (this might be a bug, or working as designed) But I would expect (from a usibilty standpoint) if I select a word or part of a sentance, that the tagging i was performing would only be affecting what I have highlighted.
The first picture shows me highlighting “dave” to turn into a contact object called “dave” however, it turned the entire sentance into a contact object (as shown in second picture. also, my suggestion would be to add another menu item into the dropdown, called “link to existing object” which would have a listing of all object called “dave” (contacts, humans, movies, etc)
@momo could you please check whether this functionality is what you are looking for?
You can link a single word in a sentence while typing using “@” like @QuantumJump showed
You can link to an existing Object. You can filter your existing Objects by typing after typing @.
You can link to a new Object by typing @, then the name of your new Object, and then click “Create new object”
You can link a single word in a sentence after you finished typing by selecting the word an then clicking the chain icon
You can link to an existing Object by searching for that object
You can link to a new Object by clicking “Create new object”.
You can turn the current Block into a new Object. Note: this will turn the whole Block into a link to a new Object.
This currently seems to be the intended behavior, but I would expect the distinction between text level and block level styling/actions to be clearer. Maybe it is clear when this menu option is moved from the quick access toolbar to the block level menu?
