Can't edit the URL of external link

Recommended Posts

I can't edit (or remove) external links, that I copy-paste to Evernote for Android. For example : anchor text .
On Android, apps don't give you a lot of control. So sometimes I need Evernote to have the power of a simple text editor, that will show me the difference between the claimed link e.g.  https://finalratings.com/best-motherboard-for-i7-8700k/ and the real link, e.g. http://finalratings.com/foo?your&name&address.
When I paste a link inside an Evernote note, all I see is the anchor text. I can edit only the anchor text (title of the link), not the URL. When I long press on a link, I get the android menu : cut, copy, paste, select all, dictionary, translate. I looked in all menus, there's no option to edit or remove the link, like on the Windows app (Ctrl+K).
So when I don't have a computer, I'm stuck.

This is my 1st post, I don't know if it's a bug, a feature request or a simple "how to" for something that exists and works well but that I didn't find. I searched extensively, I didn't find an answer.

Hi.  I doubt any simple text editors would show you both versions of the link either. Evernote is a note-taking app (among other things) so it copies the visible content of a page or a link.  You could add a feature request to show both parts of the equation - to include a 'show link' option somehow,  but you'd need to do that in the correct part of the Forum...
