How to add a text link to a note in OmniFocus

I feel like I’m missing something obvious here, but is there any way to add a link to a text string in the notes of an OmniFocus Task?

For example, I have a task to remember to check shipping status on 2 items.

In the notes, I’d like to have the links to the tracking pages, but instead of the full link (which is a huge URL), I’d rather have something like:

  • Item 1
  • Item 2

And each of those be the link.

Does that make sense? Anybody know if it’s possible?

Try “add link” in the Edit menu.

@teronel Thanks! Exactly what I wanted.

If you have a link in the clipboard, you get the “add link” option where you can add a name. If you’ve already pasted the link in the notes, option-click gives you “edit link” with the same options. So simple. I can’t believe I missed it.
