URL attribute
Frame targets

Here we explain the functions in the URLs submenu. The Targets submenu provide exactly the same functions for the frame target sets, except that the two functions Import and Add Folder is only available for URL sets.

Active URL sets

In the URLs menu shown above there are two URL sets defined, Default and My favorites, which are found at the bottom of the menu. They are both checked, which means that they are currently active. The URLs in the active URL sets will appear in the URL popup menu in the attribute dialog. Activating and deactivating URL sets is a way to only have the URLs in the popup menu, which are relevant for the web site you are editing currently.

Add New URLs To submenu

In the submenu Add New URLs To you can choose which set new URLs are added to when you enter a URL in an attribute dialog or when you bring up an attribute dialog to edit a tag. URLs are also added to a URL set when you paste a link from a home page window. If you select No Set new URLs will not be added to any set.

Editing URL sets

The URLs are stored in simple text files with one URL on each line. You edit them as any other text file. Just remember to put exactly one URL a line.

Import...
Lets you select a file and scans it to import all URLs found to a URL set.
Add Folder...
Adds the names of all files in a folder to a URL set. You can optionally add a path before the file name. For example, if you have a folder 'pics' with images, you might want to add 'pics/file.gif' to the set rather than only 'file.gif'.
