Go to Settings --> Options --> System --> Documentation Paths
Click the '+' button
It looks like nothing happened. But actually a new row has been added to the frame below
It would be nice to automatically place the focus on the added row (with the cursor inside, ready to type)
More generally, this behaviour is different from the other '+' buttons in the dialog. Those ones open the file browser to pick the folder you want.
I know that the doc one can also add hyperlink but.... Maybe can we find a dialog that helps to do both???... I don't know really how yet (sorry!)

Indeed, it's. But browsing the whole dialog, I think it's the only one that behaves like that. And I do not feel that this behaviour of Datum is a good one.
If we want to keep such simple way to add links, then give a look to the Network tab --> Use proxy for web access --> Exclude URLs option: it adds a row but with 'URL' typed in. The user is then aware that a new line is added and can write/paste anything in it. Otherwise, he could be waiting for something and think it's broken (as I experienced the first time).
