I tend to think Mike is right. I tested with 7.0 and 6.3 that seem to 
match "a few versions ago" and there was no such entry.

I have also tried this now.

1. In the customize dialog, pick Text from the Target dropdown.
2. In the Search field, type hyper
3. In the Available Commands, select Insert Hyperlink
4. In the Assigned Commands, select Paste Special and click the big 
right arrow button in the middle

Adjust actual position based on what you like.
