Hi,

This is what I did:

(when (not (or (looking-at " ")	;looking at a space
		 (looking-at "^$")	;looking at a blank line
		 (looking-at "]")	;looking at a bracket at the end
					;looking at the end of the line.
		 (looking-at "$")))

    (save-restriction
      (widen)
      (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
        (let* ((object (org-element-context))
               (type (org-element-property :type object))
               (link-content (org-element-property :path object)))
          (save-excursion
            (message "%s:%s" type link-content))))))


It seems to do what I want.

Thank you very much for your help.

Garjola
