How do I prevent Jira description and comment fields converting a full URL to only short hypertext?

When I paste in a full URL into the Description or Comments field of Jira it converts the full URL to only a short hyperlink text.

I want to be able to read the entire full URL without hovering over it.

Example: pasting in this full URL

Jira converts it to 2 words Subaru Drive

Do you happen to know if there is any way to set  "Display URL" as a default instead of "Display Inline"?

Hi @Asako Hosoe , I don't think this is implemented yet though I think there is Jira Card  -, which I think you should check and vote for it so that it gathers more interest and implemented in future.

Please check and let me know if that helps.
