By default a click on the link doesn’t activate it. You have to combine the Ctrl key with the click to activate the link. To return to the legacy behavior:
- select ▸ ▸ ▸ ;
- click the Options button; and
- in the Security Options check: Ctrl-click required to follow hyperlinks.
If you prefer to remove this option, that means that a click launches the hyperlink; you have to combine the Ctrl key with the click to allow correction of the text of the link.
Warning: those methods only modify the text of the hyperlink but not the link itself. To modify the link:
- select the ▸ menu; and
- modify the target or the recipient.
