View pane link widget

In most view types used in the View pane, a link widget is displayed allowing a basic link to be dragged to another note in the view or the tab bar's link parking space.

If more than one item is selected, using the link widget will create a single link from the note whose widget was used and ignoring the other notes in the selection - the selection is unaffected.

Links cannot be dragged between different document windows, i.e. outside the current window.

Links cannot be dragged to, or from, Treemap view items (though links can be originated from the text pane instead).
