I love hearing from readers and listeners with interesting questions. Recently, reader Teri wrote asking about how to make clickable links using TextExpander for an e-mail signature.

Teri’s question was whether, using TextExpander, she could put a link in without spelling out the link specifically. Turns out you can.
The trick is:
1. Enable Formatted Text and Pictures with the snippet:
2. Type out the entire Link:
3. Context Click and Create URL
4. Go Into the Created Link and Edit the Text
5. Customize the Text
Set your fonts and colors. Here is my final product.
