I'm copying from TextEdit. I started with text copied from the web into EN. Then because I couldn't get rid of underline text, I copied it out into textedit (plain text, which is my default for text). Then I created my line breaks and copied it back into EN. The line breaks were gone. However, all web and email addresses became hyperlinked. Here's another ditty. If text preceding a hyperlink text gets merged with linked text and then is separated out, it retains its link. So, If I have "Joe Smith email@example.com" and that gets connected (whether by user error or by EN formatting funkiness) to become "Joe Smithjoe@smith.com" "Smithjoe@smith.com" is the new hyperlinked text. It I then add a space or return to try to correct it, then "Smith" is hyperlinked (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) and "email@example.com" retains its hyperlink (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org). The only solution is to delete the hyperlinked Smith and retype it. In addition to this report, I'd like to ask: 1) Is there a way to specify EN (Mac) to use a plain text format mode? 2) Why does do email web addresses not become hyperlinks when I enter them manually, but do if I copy them in (from a plain text editor, TextEdit)? Thank you.
