What's the best way to send a link to a page in email?

Prior to the UI change, I could copy the page title and paste it into an email. It was sweet. I looked good.

Now the page title is no longer a link to itself, which I get is reduant, but it was also convenient.

Sure, I can copy/paste or type the name of the page into my email and then copy the URL of the page and then turn the text in my email into a hyperlink to that URL. Dandy, but more time. Is there an easier way in the new UI?

There is no native way to do this in the confluence application.

Here is a way to do what you are looking for:

1. Copy the required link

2. Paste it into the left panel in the href="" value on this link.

3. Click Run >>

4. Copy the right output

5. Paste output to mail

It's a few more clicks then before, but did you try the "Share" button? It gives you a shortened url.

Interesting thought, but regardless of how long the URL is, it's still a URL rather than hyperlinked text. Thanks for the suggestion. Is there a Confluence enhancement request space/jira out there with +1 voting where I can log this?
