Using the link - symbol, we can easily search for an existing topic and link to it without leaving the editor. Sometimes, the topic doesn’t exist yet. Couldn’t there be a way to create a new topic from the link-editor?
I often waatch myself having to open a new tab, create a topic and then copy the URL back into the place I was editing – this could be smoother.
The hyperlink search is quite useful but not as comprehensive as a proper search. I think if you’re looking for something you know exists the hyperlink search is really useful, but if it’s a general search to maybe create a new topic the full search is going to be far more beneficial.
In the typical situations of writing and linking between pages, you probably don’t need much more than the fact that a page with this search string in the title does or does not exist (maybe adding a few similar titles).
