It would be nice to, in addition to dragging a reference window entry to the editor to create a "bare" reference link (not sure what else to call it), one could drag the entry onto some selected text to create a reference link using the selection as the displayed text...

    Not sure about the dragging, but you can now double click and use selected text in this way. I don't remember if this was implemented before 2.b (4) or after, but it's definitely in the next release.

    I think the dragging would require a more complicated interface to imply dropping a link "onto" a word instead of at the insertion point. Hopefully the double click will serve your needs.
