When I type in https://www.example.com/ in confluence, in a few seconds the text changes to "Example" with a link.
I don't want it to convert URLs to text automatically. I don't want Confluence to grab the title of the page and change how the link looks. I want it to show the entire URL that I typed. If I want to change how it looks, I will click the Link button and add text to it.
Please someone tell me how to turn off this new functionality??? I have to keep clicking these links and selecting "Show URL" every time, it's such a pain!
I found that I can paste a block of text that includes one or more words (sequence of characters excluding whitespace) that Confluence sees as URLs using "Command+Shift+D".
The full keyboard-only sequence becomes "Command+Shitf+D, Command+V, Tab, Enter", which is a lot more than simply "Command+V", but it's better than having to use the mouse to Unlink potentially dozens or hundreds of words that look like links. Thankfully the dialog that pops up is keyboard friendly.
