Link macro corrupts url every time. Any way to enforce stricter behaviour?

The original url starts with


Some occurrances of character : get replaced with %3

Sometimes character ( gets reeplaced with %28

Linking is important because the url itself is long and doesn't suit wiki display. I want users to be able to right-click and copy it. Will this be possible with Confluence?-
