How do I easily insert link to new page in 4.2 ?

OK, I have reviewed this document:

http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Keyboard+Shortcuts

And I see that when I type [something

That I get an insert link menu.

What I do not see or understand (sorry), is how to be as efficient as I was in wiki markup to type:

[a new page I want to link to and create]

Please advise.

I am sorry if this is documented. I read the docs, with someone reading them along by my side, and I tried it, and I don't get it so far.

(note, must be keyboard only, and not require any memorized shortcuts that are new.... ctrl K and ctrl S are as far as I go!)

Thanks!

Hi Sam,

In 4.2 you should be able to just type:

[a new page I want to link to and create]

and the closing ] should automatically turn the text into a link. If the text inside the []'s is the same as an existing page in the Space then it links to that page, if it doesn't match an existing page it creates a link which will create a new page when it's clicked.

Is that not what's happening?

Andrew.

yes that works! Thx! (not intuitive, because of all the auto stuff popping up in editor)
