Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I had to Google it but eventually figured out what (sulkb://) is and how to use it:
http://blog.surfulater.com/2007/10/15/surfulater-v230100-released-external-links-and/

But I couldn’t find anything similar for EndNote. Are you saying it’s possible to link to an EndNote entry from another application as well?

Actually both of this functionalities would be very useful if they had worked in CT. Unfortunately I couldn’t get (sulkb://) work in CT but I’ll ask around on the CT forum.

Actually I did find a way to get it work in CT. I had to use the [[$APP: command, so a link to Surfulater in CT looks like this in edit mode:

[[$APP:sulkb://kb=PhD,Fid=5354,Rid=7460]]

This produces a button in view mode, rather than a link. However, the button text can be customised by adding the item name (e.g. “Press Release”) like this:

[[$APP:sulkb://kb=PhD,Fid=5354,Rid=7460|Press Release]]

Neat! Thank you so much for this suggestion. This would have never occurred to me… Are you saying EndNote has a link like that as well?

I’m glad you managed to make it work in CT. From my part I admit that I feel almost terrorised at the markup involved, in terms of interrupting the flow. That said, I could just copy the link and do the markup later.

>Are you saying EndNote has a link like that as well? 

I was quite certain that it did, and that I had read about it in this forum ages ago, in relation to Word. But, I was unable to find it. In fact, I may have been mistaken; I only found this relevant discussion http://www.outlinersoftware.com/topics/viewt/49 which refers to Biblioscape, not Endnote.

In the case of Postbox v.s. Thunderbird, I’m not sure about reliability but I find Postbox in general more pleasant to use.

The search is awesome, going through a large volume of e-mails in less than a second. I find the UI is laid out a lot better (which I realize can be customized in TBird, but this one works the way I want it to right out of the box.) A lot of little things—the way it handles conversations, the integration with Gmail and Priority Inbox (it’s pulling from multiple Gmail or Google Apps accounts).

Also, unlike Thunderbird these days, it’s still under active development.

Anyway, thank you for mentioning Asutype, I will give it a shot. Looks like I could be a decent stop-gap solution until MarkdownPad gets a spellchecker (supposed to be coming, along with a rather nice looking interface, based on screenshots that have been posted.)

There is a simpler way. Just add “sulkb” to a file named Protocols.txt. You will find in CT folder. Then you can use it as an URL.
