How do I stop Confluence from automatically changing URLs into link previews

When I type in 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!

Disabling it is not possible yet, but here is the corresponding issue with a couple of workaround ideas. You may want to vote and watch that issue.
