 Calculated data






Holds the number of outbound text links (i.e. within $Text).

The value is (internal) text links plus (external) web links. Thus if you need the count of only text-type links, use an expression like $TextInternalLinkCount = $TextLinkCount-$WebLinkCount. Thus, if a note has two text links and one web link, the note's $TextLinkCount value would be 3 but user attribute $TextInternalLinkCount would have a value of 2.

Also see $PlainLinkCount, $WebLinkCount, $OutboundLinkCount.
