I would love it if we could disable this "feature". I tried some other note taking software and they all do it...someone earlier posted cases where the URL in the text isn't a real URL. I'm an engineer too and taking notes for REST API calls - all these go to localhost, eg I paste in examples of a curl command to run a REST API call and evernote picks them up as clickable links and it DRIVES ME ABSOLUTELY NUTS - I have to go through each one and right click - remove hyperlink, or I keep clicking on them by accident opening a browser. It does the same thing with email addresses making them into mailto: links. For example, I'm pasting in notes like:
curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="405t3qij045UU3Ylq575Ug2950rqM4ek941YfabM18b520Yra"' -H 'X-Contribution-ID: JVdcblOhMT3ysFAz' --data-binary @/root/software/testScripts/samples/1to1smode/eicar2.body http://localhost:9000/request/v1/rcs/mo/send
Even the compose window in this site is doing it....
It might seem like the solution here is to make a note into plain text, but that isn't the solution either - I want to be able to color code stuff etc. While I'm on about it, having an option to paste as plain text would be useful. How many of us are using notepad or TextEdit to paste our text into, then copying that back to paste into some other application just so all the formatting isn't changed along with the source.
