Web-link protocol/prefix should not be set to HTTP

When inserting a web-link to a document, I noticed the protocol was fixed as “HTTP”.

Would it not be better to allow the author to at least choose the protocol, rather than forcing “HTTP”? In 2019 “HTTPS” is becoming much more widely-used, with “HTTP” being flagged as unsafe by modern browsers.

What version of Scrivener do you have? In 3.1.2, the Add Link box reflects the prefix of whatever is on the clipboard. You also have the option of “no prefix.”
