Re: 1:1 vs. piped links

This ssounds like the best solution. I personally would prefer that
there be no label for links: URLs are typed as they are, and Zim would
autmatically make them clickable links. But I understand that not
everyone would prefer that.

I agree, it is a terrible time waster.

> What I would like to have (to do, perhaps) with the Zim GUI is what was suggested regarding a checkbox or radio button that will turn the auto-linking associated with CaML case on/off.

Are you referring to internal links, or external links? I would
personally prefer that there be no support for internal links, as I
use CaMeL case for code variables and I store code examples in Zim. I
do not use internal linking in Zim.
