This has probably been mentioned before but I've just noticed that if you have a URL on the Clipboard and go to insert a link in a CityDesk article, it automatically guesses that you want to link to that URL and pre-populates the text box.

It would be great if it can recognize the URL on the active browser.
I dunno, inserting the url from the currently-open browser, even if it could work (which browser window, and which tab of that window?) is just too much like attempted mindreading. It's bound to annoy more people than it helps.
Actually, I think a "Use Current Browser Address" button in the link dialog would be great. I'm envisioning something that works exactly like the "Use Current" button in AOL Instant Messenger's link dialog. I agree that CityDesk shouldn't auto-populate the field like it does with a URL in the clipboard, but a button to go and get the URL from the browser window on top sure would be handy.
Try dragging a URL from Internet Explorer into the normal view of an article. (On the address line, click, hold, and drag the small icon before the URL.)
