Wholesale hyperlink removal

I need to remove all hyperlinks in my project. I have a lot. How do I do it all at once? I’ve found instructions but no page matches anything in my version of Scrivener. I use a PC, Windows 10 and Scrivener I don’t know if those instructions match old versions of Scrivener or what it looks like on a Mac but NOTHING in my window looks like that.

There is not a single shot way of doing this on Windows as the Edit ▸ Remove Links command is a text editing command, and you can only select the text from one section at a time. But that’s how you would do it. I’d recommend getting familiar with the shortcut for “Next Document”, in the Navigate ▸ Go To submenu, so you can just go down the list quickly.

Do you need to remove them from the project, or just from the output document? You can remove them from the output via the Compile command.

I was hoping to remove them from the whole project. Or just turn off their ability to be clickable.

I’ve never done this, but I would think you could use the compile command to remove all the links then bring the compiled doc back into Scrivener? @kewms what would you say?

(I would definitely start with making a backup just in case it doesn’t work as you wish - for safety’s sake.)

That would certainly get rid of the hyperlinks, but also the metadata, the Binder structure, etc.
