    Is there any way to change the default field (the field that has focus) in the Hyperlink Manager?  I'd like to be able to have the URL field have focus and automatically select the contents so that users can simply type/paste a URL and press OK instead of having to click the URL field and select the contents before typing/pasting.

    Cheers -- Peter

    Hi Peter,

    Please review bellow how to achieve the desired behavior.
    1. Copy the editor's dialogs' folder within your application - you can get it from the editor's installation zip or from the hotfix zip within your account.
    2. Set the editor's ExternalDialogsPath property to point to the dialogs folder e.g.ExternalDialogsPath="~/EditorDialogs"
    3. Open the EditorDialogs/LinkManager.ascx file and on the bottom of the clientInit: function() add the desired code:

      clientInit : function(clientParameters)
         this._clientParameters = clientParameters;
         if(this._clientParameters.selectedTabIndex && this._clientParameters.selectedTabIndex >= 0)
         // here - set focus to the LinkURL textbox
    I hope this helps.
