Removing hyperlinks in imported texts

Sometimes I import text from Wikipedia. The text contains hyperlinks to other pages in Wikipedia. They are marked in blue as hyperlinks. I would like to change them to regular text without the blue. Any suggestions?

When pasting in text from any source that has hyperlinks, try using Paste & Match Style. This usually let's me avoid the hyperlinks I then have to clean up. Of course, you need to have hyperlink recognition disabled in preferences first.
For text you've already pasted you could select all & then cut then Paste & Match Style.

  • Change or remove hyperlinked button mouseover text

    I am trying to find a way to remove or change the mouseover text for button hyperlinks. The form is located at http://www.etsu.edu/finaid/Forms/staffordlenderselection0708.pdf . The hyperlink buttons are located at the end of each bullet point. They have been configured to appear as ordinary hyperlinked text. I would greatly appreciate any advice regarding this issue. Thanks.

    Joel, I have used a workaround method in Designer 7.1.2 to remove the mouseover text. In your case, complete your sentence by adding the word Online to your sentence. Underline and change the color as needed. On the button, remove the caption, and place the button overtop your word. Under the Accessibility tab, change the Screen Reader Preference to None. I don't know if this will work in 8+.

  • How to remove hyperlink in Reports Region

    How to remove hyperlink in a Report region (Based on some filter condition)
    Example : In Report Region, I am getting value as 10, 20, 30, 0, 44, 55, 0
    In the above value, I need to remove the hyperlink for 0 values.
    Can anyone help me to resolve this issue.
    Thanks in advance.
    Regards

    If you want a link column for values other than 0 and a blank for those with 0 then the best way to do this is to use a case or a decode to return a LINK image or text to a hidden column; I usually return the Edit icon only. You can then use the 'column link' region on a different column to create a link in the usual way and set the Link Text to the hidden column (e.g. #EDIT# in the example below). If you have set the target page to require a Checksum this will then be added without having to code it into your sql. E.g.
    SELECT some_columns, 
      CASE WHEN numcol != 0 THEN '<img src="#IMAGE_PREFIX#e2.gif" alt="">'
      ELSE null
      END "EDIT"
    FROM your_tableIf you want the same column value, but those of 0 to not have a link and those other than 0 to have a link then you need to code the link into your sql. e.g.
    SELECT some_columns, 
      DECODE (numcol,0,numcol,'<a href="f?p=&APP_ID.:11:&SESSION.::&DEBUG.:11::">'||numcol||'</a>') "EDIT"
    FROM your_table# = your URL e.g f?p=&APP_ID.:11:&SESSION.::&DEBUG.:11::
    If you require a checksum on the link you need to add the apex_util.prepare_url function to the URL.

  • Import Text From Form Field into Subject Line of Email

    Hello,
    Is there a way to import text from a form field into the subject line of the email when sending back (attaching) the PDF form?  In other words, there is an "applicant name" and I would like that name to be the subject line of the email.
    I am using Adobe Acrobat X (10.1.7)
    If any one has aby guidance or resources online where I can locate this information I would greatly appreciate it!  I have been searching all day but have not found a solution yet. 
    Thanks!

    Thank you so much for the help.  For some reason I cannot get it to work though.   Now, when I hit the submit button it does not do anything.
    Previously, I had the following code under
    ACTIONS>Mouse Up>Submit a Form
    mailto:[email protected]?subject=Employee Application
    I removed the above mailto URL and put in your code as a Javascript function. I made sure that my field name matched the name in quotes within the code.
    I used the following:
    var subject = getField("lastname").value 
    this.mailDoc({
    bUI: false,
    cTo: "[email protected]",
    cSubject: subject,
    cMsg: "Type message here"
    Do you see anything obvious that I am doing wrong?
    Many thanks!

  • Can an InCopy editor add, remove and edit a text frame placed inside the main story text frame?

    I think I already know the answer to this which is - no. I'll explain why I am asking the question in a second, but the reason I think the simple answer is no is because - text frames are controlled by a designer in the layout file, an editor using incopy can only edit the text and images placed inside text frames, and so cannot resize them, add or delete them.
    Ok, so the reason I have asked this.
    Is there a way around this so that editors in incopy can edit certain types of text frame that are contained within the main text frame? I'm using these text frames to contain specific paragraph styles, giving them a boxed look and also with an anchored icon in the top left of the text frame depending on the type of paragraph it is. See screenshot as an example of a green text frame that I am using to contain paragraphs of type "tip".
    If it is not possible for editors in incopy to add, edit or resize these text frames (green tip frame in the example above), then how else can I style these paragraphs to give the same visual appearance, but without the use of wrapping them in a text frame?
    One (not so good) way around this is for the designer to add the text frames in the layout file after he gets the content back from the editor, then moving the "tip" paragraphs into these newly created text frames. However when the editor updates the content in incopy and gets these new text frames in their copy, they can not then delete them if they wish to, or if they add or reduce content inside of these green text frames then the frames dont grow to fit their edited content. So I dont think its a solution for the designer to control the adding, removing and resizing of these frames.
    UPDATE: I have just discovered that once a text frame has been placed into the document by the designer and the editor updates their copy in incopy-  they can then use the "Position Tool" to select that text frame - allowing them to resize it, or delete it! Fantastic. But would the editor be able to add these frames in themselves to begin with? Maybe have a document containing all of the objects available to them, copy and paste one of them into the main document and edit its content? Does anyone have any advice on how to go about this? Essentially I would like the editor to control the insertion, editing and removal of these inline text frames.

    True. But when all I am trying to achieve is a border around a paragraph, use of a table seems overkill to me. But if thats the only solution I have so far then I will have to go down that route.
    It would be useful to have an object libraries panel in InCopy so that editors can drag across predefined text frames into their doc via InCopy, but I cant see that option in InCopy. is there one? I have also thought about exporting the frames as seperate InDesign Snippets and saving them to an objects folder, then when an editor needs to insert one into their doc they simply use File > Place > "Choose required text frame snippet". However I have found that InCopy can't place InDesign snippets so that theory was a failure. Is there another format I could use to save the objects and bring them into InCopy? List below shows my findings so far for trying to save/export a text frame from InDesign and then import into InCopy:
    InDesign Snippet (.idms) - can't import into InCopy
    InDesign Document (.indd) - imports content as an image - only editable in InDesign
    InDesign Template (.indt) - imports content as an image - only editable in InDesign
    InDesign Library (.indl) - can't import into InCopy - no panel available in InCopy for object libraries (that I can see...)
    InCopy Markup (.icml) - only imports the text, loses the text frame

  • How do you remove hyperlinks?

    has "Numbers" received an update recently? maybe I missed it. but i can no longer remove hyperlinks from a cell.
    I still want the URL there -- but in plain text format -- but i don't want a working hyperlink. I used to be able to left-click on the cell and a little box came up, where you could amend the text, and remove the link -- nice and easy.
    But when you click on the link now, all it does is open up Safari and takes you straight to the page
    I've highlighted the cell, the text, and searched through all the menus, but there doesn't seem to be any way to remove the hyperlink. All you can do is type the whole thing out again, which can take ages when you've got a long URL
    anyone got any ideas?

    Hi,
    CSS is interpreted by your browser, so server cache seems unlikely in htis case. There is however some hierarchy in CSS, so parts of the APEX CSS, theme CSS or page CSS might overwright or block yours.
    Does changing the CSS on runtime affect your page? Eg, run the following in your browser console and see if your page turns black: $('#uBodyContainer').css("background-color","black")
    Also try moving up your css in the hierarchy labeling it as important:
    div#uBodyContainer { 
      background-color:#000000 !important;

  • Remove Hyperlink

    I have a form that has an email address in the text field.  I do not want the hyperlink to work.  I right clicked on the text and selecting Remove Hyperlink and this did not work.
    This works only if I remove the email wording before the URL address.  For example:  "You may contact us at 555-123-4567 or email: [email protected]

    This is a setting in the users version of Reader (under Edit ... Preferences ... General ... "Create links from URLs).
    We can't update this setting so I don't think you can do any better than the solution you have come up with.
    The insert hyperlink option in Designer allows you to create a hyperlink out of any text.

  • Importing text from Word to ID

    Hello. Which are the best way to import text files? I mean, step by step, from Microsoft Word to ID? It is a headache when you apply an style and booom all the italics and bolds dissapear... Sometimes it works fine when i apply a style, but sometimes it does a disaster. From now, I am really curious about how indesign thinks to resolve the import cases and the work of styles.
    1) Why sometimes erase all the word local formats and sometimes does not?
    2) Is it a problem using .doc, .docx or .rtf to save text files an import?
    3) Is the problem that you work with .TTF fonts (like Arial, Times, Courier) from word and on ID you use OpenType Fonts?
    4) What is the NON-FAIL way to do an excellent import? from Microsoft Word to ID
    Thanks

    1) Why sometimes erase all the word local formats and sometimes does not?
    When placing, you can select to either preserve 'local' formatting or remove it. Local formatting is "anything done without using a style", just as it is in InDesign. As Ellis says, check your import settings.
    In addition, even if you 'preserve' local formatting, it's very easy to accidentally remove it in InDesign when you apply another style. If common attributes such as bold and italics are not applied through character styles in the original Word document, you should preserve them yourself by doing that in InDesign.
    2) Is it a problem using .doc, .docx or .rtf to save text files an import?
    Yes, on all three. There is no single format that InDesign works best with. If a Word document causes me trouble, I try the other options until I get not exactly the "best" result, but more accurately a "least bad".
    3) Is the problem that you work with .TTF fonts (like Arial, Times, Courier) from word and on ID you use OpenType Fonts?
    Not in the least. Actually, you can use TTF fonts as well as OTF fonts with InDesign. The import is totally indifferent of the fonts used -- it doesn't matter what you used in Word, you'll get the same fonts in the imported text. That is, except when it's bitmap fonts, which you cannot use in InDesign, or when the author italicized or bolded text in Word where the actual Bold or Italic font doesn't exist. But even then, InDesign will happily import the text -- it will just have an 'unavailable' font assigned to it, and you'll be notified of that.
    4) What is the NON-FAIL way to do an excellent import? from Microsoft Word to ID
    I would like to know the answer to that as well. The import filter has problems with tables, footnotes, endnotes, automatic references, and new page codes, for .docx, .rtf, and .doc files.

  • Problems with importing text messages from PC Suit...

    Problems with importing text messages from PC Suit 7.1.18.0 to my Nokia 5800
     I am trying to import a csv file that contains text messages (Note that this file was created using PC Suit 7.1.18.0) to a subfolder that I have created to My Folders but PC Suits only imports the text messages to the Draft folder. Note that initially it shows that the messages are import in the correct folder but after a refresh it shows them in the Draft Folder. Is their any setting that I should change in the PC Suit or the phone? My computer runs on Windows XP Service Pack 3 and the Nokia 5800 was upgraded to the latest firmware v20.0.012
     Thanks for your help

    Most phones only allows importing of draft and archived box for SMS.
    To do a restoring, you need to backup the SMS as a .nbu file using PC Suite and restore later.
    If you got an SD card, you can also do a backup on the SD Card (backup.arc) then restore later (reset and restore: backup.arc and mmc).

  • How to add hyperlinks in Import Manager

    Dear MDM-gurus!
    I really tried hard to find the solution, but couldn't find it here or in OSS.
    We already have a repository with more than 50.000 items.
    What I'd like to do is to add hyperlinks to PDF-files in the internet to each item.
    For this we got an excel-file from the supplier with the supplier part number in one column, the PDF-link in another column and the .
    In Data Manager I was able to add links manually or also with importing entries of the excel-file. Importing from excel takes a LOT of time. I don' t know why:
    -  Fields to import: Hyperlinks
    -  Key fields: Supplier part number.
    --> Action: Update all single matches.
    How can I import hyperlinks in Import Manager, make the mapping and then update the records faster? E.g. I could not find the field "URL <Hyperlink> [Qual]" in Import Manager
    Thanks for your help and best regards,

  • Add/Remove Programs - export to text file?

    Hello,
    I am wondering if it is possible to export a list of everything in add/remove programs to a text file for inventory purposes.
    I have not found any easy method to do this short of copying reg files or installer 3rd party software.  Since the idea is to save time neither of those are viable solutions.
    Does anyone have any ideas?

  • Importing text file into search and redact window.

    I am in the search window under the search and redact tool.  I
    am trying to import a file that was originally an excel to populate the
    search multiple words window.  I read that text files can be imported.  I saved the file as a text file but it does not import.  I can import an adobe file but this gives me a list with a bunch of junk.  What am I missing?

    The dialog imports text files.
    Make sure that the file you are importing is a text file and has one word in every line.

  • Importing text file (with file names) into Automator.. is it possible?

    Hello all,
    I have been working with Windows Batch files for my line of work. I have a couple of file names in a text file (a column), which I want to copy from one folder of one hdd to another folder on a different hdd. I have been trying to do this kind of work with a Mac. I already know how you copy and rename files in automator (which isn't difficult, of course) but you have to 'select' the files in the finder first (with get specified items).
    But the only way i see that you can specify items is by selecting them... is there a way to import a text file with all the file names instead of selecting all the file names manually?
    or is there an AppleScript alternative which I can use to import the text file (or just copy into applescript) and run before the query's of copying and renaming the files? I am kind of new to Apple programming.
    The text file looks like this:
    image1.jpg
    image2.jpg
    etc..
    so there has to be a command to: 'goto' a specific folder as well.
    Thanks in advance!

    You can import text files, but if they are just names you will need an additional action to add the source folder path. A *Run AppleScript* action can be used, for example:
    Tested workflow:
    1) *Ask for Finder Items* {Type: files } -- choose the text file containing the names
    2) *Combine Text Files* -- this gets the text file contents
    3) *Filter Paragraphs* { return paragraphs that are not empty } -- skip blank lines
    4) *Run AppleScript* -- copy and paste the following script:
    <pre style="
    font-family: Monaco, 'Courier New', Courier, monospace;
    font-size: 10px;
    font-weight: normal;
    margin: 0px;
    padding: 5px;
    border: 1px solid #000000;
    width: 680; height: 340px;
    color: #000000;
    background-color: #FFEE80;
    overflow: auto;"
    title="this text can be pasted into an Automator 'Run AppleScript' action">
    on run {input, parameters} -- add folder path
    add the specified folder path to a list of file names
    input: a list of text items (the file names)
    output: a list of file paths (aliases)
    set output to {}
    set SkippedItems to {} -- this will be a list of skipped items (errors)
    set SourceFolder to (choose folder with prompt "Choose the folder containing the file names") as text -- this is the folder containing the names
    repeat with AnItem in the input -- step through each name in the input
    try
    set AnItem to SourceFolder & AnItem -- add the prefix
    set the end of the output to (AnItem as alias) -- test
    on error number ErrorNumber -- oops
    set ErrorNumber to ("  (" & ErrorNumber as text) & ")" -- add the specific error number
    set the end of SkippedItems to (AnItem as text) & ErrorNumber
    end try
    end repeat
    ShowSkippedAlert for SkippedItems
    return the output -- pass the result(s) to the next action
    end run
    to ShowSkippedAlert for SkippedItems
    show an alert dialog for any items skipped, with the option to cancel the workflow
    parameters - SkippedItems [list]: the items skipped
    returns nothing
    if SkippedItems is not {} then
    set {AlertText, TheCount} to {"Error with AppleScript action", count SkippedItems}
    if TheCount is greater than 1 then
    set theMessage to (TheCount as text) & space & " items were skipped:"
    else
    set theMessage to "1 " & " item was skipped:"
    end if
    set {TempTID, AppleScript's text item delimiters} to {AppleScript's text item delimiters, return}
    set {SkippedItems, AppleScript's text item delimiters} to {SkippedItems as text, TempTID}
    if button returned of (display alert AlertText message (theMessage & return & SkippedItems) ¬
    alternate button "Cancel" default button "OK") is "Cancel" then error number -128
    end if
    return
    end ShowSkippedAlert
    </pre>

    Go to your "Insert" drop down menu.
    Select "Hyperlink", near or at bottom.
    You will get this dialog box:
    Look at the lower left corner... see the button "Remove Link"?
    Click on it...and hit the "OK" button in the lower right...
