Prob’ly this is owing to an underlying Apple URL service glitch, but thought I would mention: contextual menu items Open URL and Make Link do not present for certain URLs.
Paste these three url-lines into a Scrivener document, then control click on each. The above menu items will present for the first one, but not the second and third.

Further investigation suggests it is just the ‘?’ that throws it. Unless Scrivener just does not like poetry. Nah, what am I saying? Those poems are awesome.
