By accident, while drafting an earlier posting, I discovered something that was a surprise to me, but perhaps obvious to others.
If I dragged a URL link that happened to have a ‘title attribute’ (what I referred to earlier as a ‘hybrid link’, e.g. a URL link with a separate title) , what appeared in the text editing field on the left side of the screen for the posting is the title in brackets [ ] with the URL link immediately following in parenthesis ( ), e.g.:
[Thermochemistry of the formation of fossil fuels](https://www.geochemsoc.org/files/6214/1261/1770/SP-2_271-284_Sato.pdf)
However, what appeared in the posting screen on the right side of the screen was simply the title of the ‘hybrid link’; clicking on the title opens the URL link to the page described by the title, e.g.:
Thermochemistry of the formation of fossil fuels
I tried simulating the above behavior within my Scrivener text to see if I could replicate the same behavior, hoping to create a method whereby I could create and edit a ‘hybrid link’, e.g. a URL link with a separate title, or what (I believe) others refer to as a URL link with a ‘title attribute’,
No such luck …
So, as I am already compiling my code using LaTeX, I looked for a LaTeX solution.
I may have found a LaTeX solution that may even expand on the hybrid link idea with something referred to as a tooltip that can be used with Acrobat Reader et al. to create powerful tooltips with several options.
I have not yet had a chance to test-drive the \tooltip LaTeX code with my sizeable project for conflicts, but initial testing is quite enticing. For example, the basic LaTeX \tooltip code allows a user to ‘tear off’ a tooltip to then move the tooltip elsewhere on the PDF document screen, presumably to keep the tooltip visible while moving to another page within the PDF document. Very interesting.

I’ll report back what I find after I’ve had a chance to test-drive the above \tooltip LaTeX code.
