How to disable the 'Edit Document' link

Whenever I attach a word doc or an excel spreadsheet there appears a link box 'Edit Document'. How can I make so that box does not appear?

Hi Wolfeman13,

Is the box appearing over the document itself, after using the Office Word Macro? There is currently a bug that we are aware of that is causing this problem. I would encourage you to vote/comment on this to raise it's awareness.

I'm sorry for the current inconvenience, hopefully we will have this resolved soon.
