How to set the default appearance of links?

With the latest update, the appearance of links has changed, and it has become monstrously inconvenient. Is it possible to somehow set the default appearance of the links as "Display URL"?

Hi Tatyana - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Yeah, not a fan of the new default either. You can vote for a feature request to add a Default option at this link:

It appears they've addressed this now - If you click on your avatar -> Manage Accoount -> Link preferences you can set a default, and even set domain overrides!  This really annoyed me for a long time, but credit where it's due, this is a good solution

I have also voted for this issue to be resolved. In the meantime I have discovered a small work around that some might find useful.

After pasting the link wait for the editor to turn it into a tag, then hit ctrl-z and it will display the full inline link. I think it is undoing the editors action of making it into a tag.

Hope that helps someone.


Update Sep 1 2022:

I have noticed that if you no use "ctrl-shift-v" then the link is pasted as is. Meaning the full inline link is shown.

Yes, super helpful. Thanks @Allen Edwards . Looks like Jira should have a fix by the end of April 2022 too.

Yes, a useful workaround indeed.

Fix from Atlassian hasn't been released as of this reply, but it says 'in progress', so it's 11 years ahead of custom domains. I suggest anyone interested in a release date follow the link in John Funk's post and watch the issue (top right corner).
