Why do only some of my pasted entity links retain hyperlinks?

  • Updated


Entity links in structured tables do not always retain their hyperlinks when pasting into unstructured tables. 


Notebook application


When copying and pasting values into an unstructured table, Benchling copies the original input added to the source cell(s), even if it changes. For example, if you manually entered a text value and selected an item to link from the options, the entered text is copied, like in the example below.


Resolution steps

At this time, entities pasted into unstructured tables don't retain hyperlinks. However, if the entity in the structured source table was input as a hyperlinked text, you can paste entities in unstructured tables with their hyperlink.
