Right-clicking on a link opens the link context menu.

Labeling

If only one link is selected while invoking the link context menu and a link attribute is used as label (see configuration of attributes for more detail) you can control its visibility and value:

  • edit label can be used to quickly change the label value
  • hide label can be used to hide the label
  • show label can be used to show a hidden label

For several selected links the label visibility can be controlled by invoking the link properties dialog through clicking on the last menu entry (properties).
