pasting in text auto-formats as hyperlink?

When I paste text into a new Text, Scrivener makes it blue+underlined, like a hyperlink. Is there some setting I can change so I don’t have to manually unformat this every time? Thanks.

Hi Elizabeth

Are you pasting in from a browser? Scrivener can pick up some formatting from HTML code, but such code is of arbitrary complexity, with scripts and embeds that may lead the editor astray.

Easiest fix if that’s the case is to Select All in the Editor, then cut and repaste. Ctrl-A, Ctrl-X, Ctrl-V. This should clear most of the HTML sparklies, while retaining the formatting and links Scrivener can understand.

You can also use Paste and Match Style (Ctrl+Shift+V) on the initial paste from the website to paste as plain-text, stripping the funky browser formatting.
