Remove all hyperlinks from note?


Recommended Posts

I did a search but the results were from prior to 2017 and none worked.

Is there a way to remove all  hyperlinks in a note? 

I know I could probably use "simplify formatting" or "remove formatting" but that moves the note formatting which I want to keep. It is only hyperlinks I want to delete.

(This is an archive of a Facebook conversation, and every instance of someone's name includes the hyperlink. That's what I want to remove and there are way too many to click on each name and select remove hyperlink)

If it is plain text, maybe you could copy it to a text-only editor, save it and copy it back into a new note. I am not sure if EN detects the strings and reattaches Hyperlinks again. But you could give it a try.

You could try using Word.  Found this Searching for remove hyperlinks with word.
 

How do i remove hyperlinks in a word document?
 
To remove a single hyperlink without losing the display text or image, right-click the hyperlink, and then click Remove Hyperlink. To remove all hyperlinks in a document, press CTRL+A to select the entire document and then press CTRL+SHIFT+F9.Nov 3, 2019

Thanks Pink Elephant. Unfortunately that doesn't preserve any of the other formatting which I want to keep.

Ah, that might work. I'll give it a go. Thanks!

Through the menu system, you just press CTRL-A to select all text, then Formatting, Hyperlink, remove. It will whack them all.

So it works sometimes. It doesn't work all of the time on complex HTML pages, but the more pure text with HTML links vs lots of CSS and other HTML garbage, the more likely it is to work. In its simplest form, create a Table of Contents note, then do the above steps in Windows and all links will go away.

Thanks for following up. Worth a look, next time my life opens up a space. :)

remove all hyperlinks doesn't work.  i want to be disable all hyperlinks.  I hate when they are created whenever I type a website. I dont want a hyperlink for the majority of websites I am typing in Evernote. I am creating notes and lists for myself and I am accidentally always hitting the hyperlinks thus opening pages to websites I dont wanna open or see.  Takes up time and memory and slows my progress and effectiveness of what I was trying to accomplish with Evernote. On another ever persistent note, I honestly dont like Evernote much these days.  Been a user since about 2014 and it has progressively gotten worse and more convoluted with every update.  The more Evernote grows the less I have use for all the functions it claims to offer.  Which is why I stopped paying for premium service.  If your basic service cant provide for me, there is no need for the premium.  Evernote is becoming a task/note app for a very specific type of working individual and is becoming less geared towards the general public.  Thus why I have been looking for a lighter more simple direct note taking app that is geared towards someone who isn't a tech industry giant or a young upstart with a disposable income and 5 different devices.

Evernote needs to decide who their prime demographic is and be clear about it so that they don't waste the time of the  rest of us peons in the world.
