I wasn’t sure where to put this because when I was still testing for a way to resolve this missing feature, Hook crashed. I already sent in my crash report. So, this is either a feature request, or a bug, I am not sure which. Continuing.
It seems that when selecting a triggering file, in this case a HoudahSpot file, you can’t copy the link to put into other Hook documents. I was trying this using different key combinations in case there was away to do this that I missed. That is when it crashed.
This is about how you can take a linked address from almost any Hooked file “Copy as Link”, and paste the copied link into any other hooked set with “Link to Copied Address”.
When I wanted to copy a HoudahSpot search file in a linked set, I was able to “Copy as Link” just as would normally happen. But when I returned to the document that I wanted to add that copied HoudaSpot file link to, the item “Link to Copied Address” in the Hook menu was greyed out as if I had nothing to paste.
If I am understanding the design philosophy behind Hook, I think this must be a bug as anything linked should, at least in theory, be able to be shared with other Hook link sets.
