I often find reference files in org-files and then do the following
sequence:

* Press Ctrl-x Ctrl-f
* Navigate to the requested file by the emacs and completion
* Press Ctrl-a Ctrl-k to copy
* Press Ctrl-g to get out of file-open
* Paste with ctrl-y

I was wondering if anyone has written code so that pressing [TAB] within a
file:/ link would do emacs completion in place?

Thanks!
Dov

It does that already.  Use C-c C-l to insert a link, when prompted for
the type, say file: RET.  Then you can use the usual emacs completeion
interface to get filename completeion.

What is missing though is completion when editing an existing link.
IMO, that would be a worthy feature request.
