Option to disable automatic hyperlink formatting

Idea

I copy and paste a lot of email addresses and have notes whose content is largely email addresses. They are maintained as plain text so that I can copy them to other places (without the blue formatting) but - most important - so that l can click on the note to make it active without triggering an new email.

I used to be able to put a semicolon after each address and it would not recognize it as such. I could then copy/paste the addresses around and they stay plaintext.

The new version broke this. Now, copying/pasting these triggers the hyperlink formatting. I then have to laboriously select each one - making sure NOT to click, as that triggers an email - and being sure to include exactly all characters in the address, not missing any and not having extras, then remove the link that I never wanted in the first place.

I would be happy with any of:

1) restoring the previous behavior

2) being able to select a region of text which includes links and non-links, then removing all links in the region

3) having a preference setting to disable automatic link creation

I agree. On Android I'm also unable to select text such as a number because of the hyperlinking.

So if you have a number if you tap it it will launch the dialer but you're not able to copy that number. That's frustrating!

There's another post on this same topic.  An evernote guru (don't think it was an employee), replied and said if it's important to you, it needs up votes.  Automatic hyperlinks are a huge problem for me.  Wish they'd work on it or at least let us know what the status is (or if they plain don't want to implement that feature).

Yeah, a lot of the notes I make are related to network and Internet technology. I very very often include dummy URLs/URIs that do not exist, just as examples of what the settings or contents of some network/Internet technology should look like. This means my notes are filled with links that look like they should be links, but are not links, and just lead nowhere. Get rid of them please!

I agree. I want the automatic hyperlinking to be disabled. It should be an option. I've even taken the time to remove every link multiple times. Everytime I open Evernote back up, they are all back again.

I agree. And it makes it even more difficult to deal with when the tooltip window pops up every time your mouse hovers over a hyperlink. Some notes I have are mostly email addresses and it makes using the note almost impossible with how much it pops up asking if you want to open the hyperlink.

This is super irritating and needs to be fixed.  I use my tablet a lot so get no value from right click features or ctrl characters to delete these stupid auto links.  I often copy paste part numbers to keep track of and this set up turns them into links that I can't get rid of.  Brutal.

How do I upvote.  I'm a newbie.

I've given up unlinking them over and over.  If you use Apple Notes on a Mac there are Substitution options and one of these is Smart Links. I've resorted to Apple Notes for notes that I don't want auto linked. I then create a short note in Evernote with a reminder to look in Apple Notes!
