Copy Highlighted Text From Page When Creating Link To File

When you attempt to create a link to a file, the text you highlight that you want to become the hyperlink is deleted if you do not re-type the text in to the "Link Text" box in Centricty. So you either have to remember to copy the text prior to begining the link to file process, or re-type it exactly in the field box and the original text is deleted and replaced with what you type. Can't Centricity automatically fill in the "Link Text" field with the highlighted text or not even ask for a link text field. It really should behave the same way that Centricty works when you create a link to an email address, another website, or a page within your site. It doesn't ask for a "Link Text" field and just creates the link on the text that is highlighted. Linking to a file should work the same way.

    Yes This! This seems more like a bug than something that was left out of the "insert file link" coding.
