Hopefully this is an easily answered (noob?) question.
I'm looking at the Confluence 4.1 release notes for the feature "Autoconvert Pasted Links" and have easily leveraged this feature for the examples shown (googlemaps & youtube). The supporting documentation suggests that Confluence can also be used as a content source, which is where my question focuses.
When pasting any URL into the editor its autoconverted to a link. When pasting a Confluence URL into the editor is also converted to a link, but it will be reconized as a Confluence URL and be converted to an internal link.
Pasting a Confluence URL from a differerend installation will just convert it to link, but not to an internal link..
So If I'm logged in on http://confluence.example.com/ and would past http://confluence.example.com/display/example/project+a it would be converted to a link "Project A". If I would paste http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Getting+Started it would just show that, but as link.. (hope I made any sence)
Stefan's answer is exactly right, but there are a couple more things to say.
If you would like autoconvert to handle other AppLinked Confluence instances, please file a feature request. It is something we'd like to get to at some stage.
You can get slightly nice behaviour out of autoconvert and a remote Confluence instance if you configure a shortcut link to that instance. Eg if you create a shortcut link to http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/%s then pasting http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Configuring+Shortcut+Links would result in Configuring+Shortcut+Links.
You can get slightly nicer behaviour by following the Extending Autoconvert tutorial.
