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:

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.

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