I tried to upload a screen capture video, but it wouldn’t let me. How can I do that?
The problem looks like it’s related to clicking on a line that’s not selected, where the links are not expanded, and when you click on it, it selects the line and expands the links, and then they aren’t in the same place anymore (except for the first one), so the click fails.
Paste the above line into Legend (it’s not possible to type it in). Put the cursor on a different line, so that the links are not expanded. Hovering over either of the links shows a tooltip with “click to open”:
If you click on “apples”, a new tab opens with apple.com. But if you click on “bananas”, the link doesn’t open. In both cases, the line gets selected, and the links shown expanded, with the cursor below the place you clicked, which if you click on “bananas” happens to now be in the middle of the “apples” link:
You might think that the “apples” link would open, but it doesn’t. However, if you command-click on either of the links, either expanded or not, the links do open.
If you right-click on the first link, you get the edit menu with “Edit link”:
It looks like what happens in this particular case is that when you right-click on the second link, the line expands, and the cursor happens to be in the first link now, and the “Edit link” edits the first link. If you add more text so that the cursor isn’t in the first link after expanding:
Then when right-clicking on the second link, you just don’t get the “Edit link” at all, because now the cursor is near “called by”:
I think it might be better if clicking on a link to open it (and maybe right-clicking to edit it) didn’t select the line and expand the links, since that’s not really what you were trying to do. It also prevents you from clicking on other links in the line; you need to remember to command-click them or deselect the line again.
