    So I've been using iChat in Tiger, and have to say that I am pretty satisfied overall. However, I like to send links to people a lot using hyperlinks instead of regular copy/paste into message (seems pretty normal to me). In Panther, I just hit CMD-K, CMD-V, ENTER, and then type my text for the link. Easy enough. But I cannot figure out what Im supposed to do in Tiger! I start to type text and only first letter is linked in blue. Now I have to highlight every letter but last one and type text, then go back and delete the last, unwanted letter. Doesnt make sense. Why did Apple change this? Is this one of those 500 minor fixes coming soon? BTW, did a quick search and didn't find anything obvious.

    Yup, I click in the middle of the HERE text, type my name for the link, and delete the "he" on the left and "re" on the right. Stinks. :(

    I filed a bug report on this the day Tiger came out; it was closed almost instantly as a duplicate.

    Apple's getting an earful on this, clearly. I sure hope they fix it soon.
