  • Create and Link to New Wiki Page: clicking this button creates a new Wiki Page, presents it in the Wiki Page Designer, and displays the Save Wiki Page As... File System Dialog. The new Wiki Page is named by default as per the file to which it is to be linked. You can click Save to save the new Wiki Page; a confirmatory message advises that the new Wiki Page has been saved and linked to the file.

Having linked a Wiki or web page to a file, the Link to Page button's text changes, and an inline Clear Linked Page button is displayed to the right.

Clicking it clears the link and returns the button text to 'Link to Page'.

A Clear the link to this Wiki page button is also shown.

You may cancel selection of a Wiki page; this resets the File System Dialog’s title and retains the button’s text as Link to Wiki Page. The Clear the link to this Wiki page button is not displayed.

Having linked a file to a Wiki or web page, invocation of Open Linked Page displays the page in question in the Linked Page Browser.
