How to disable link HipChat link preview in a single message?

I don't want to configure room / group settings, I just want to make it so link preview doesn't show on a per message basis. Sometimes I want previews, sometimes not - it depends on the message.

Hi David,

To disable previews for a specific message only, you can click the Hide Card/Show Card expand button located on the right-hand side of the message in question. Hope this helps! 

 

 

Thanks, although this is not quite what I had in mind. This only hides the preview after the message has been sent, and only for me. There are many situations where i don't want a link to cause a preview window to take people's focus off my text message, so I want to be able to disable link preview before I send the message so that no one would see a preview.
