[4.0] TinyMCE add link #24666
Steps to reproduce the issue
Highlight text inside the article to add a menu link to point towards an exisiting internal menu link, click the link button and there is no selection choice. However if I highlight text and click the cms button I get the option to choose.
When I click the tinyMce link button I expected to be given a choice of internal Menu/Article items to link to
No choice for the url, I can only insert/paste an external link
System information (as much as possible)
Localhost 3.1.7 64bit services, PHP 7.2.14, Apapache 2.4.37, MySql 5.7.24
Sorry guys if this is not what you want but I have decided to replicate my current website using Joomla 4, This is one issue, dont know if this is the type of help you need
If I understand this right, it sounds like perhaps a UX issue. In the sense that it is a separate flow to create a link to an external URL, or an internal URL. This being, perhaps sub optimal that the user needs to understand this difference at the start of the "Add a link to an article" work flow.
@neiljames does that sound like what you were thinking?
All screen-grabs of Joomla 4 current nightly.
There seems to be a definite split between the add link or use the cms for internal linking, the tinyMce link allows you to add the following - Text to Display - Title - Rel - Open Link in, which is more advanced. When I use the cms button I have to add the items listed by coding them directly.

This is not a core issue. Joomla uses TinyMCE as default editor and therefore its functionalities as they are provided by this 3rd party extension.
One is free to use the third party JCE extension for example where TinyMCE is part of a component where TinyMCE is modified to provide more options.
