Some problems with hyperlinks I constantly face in my ~5 years of using Workflowy daily:
- Every time I write or paste (dot) something like "user.id", Workflowy creates a hyperlink, even when it's not meant to be a hyperlink.
- When I write or paste a website address to a less common domain extension (like proaccounting.app) without adding "https://" at the beginning, it doesn't turn it into a hyperlink, though that was the expected behavior.
In other words, Workflowy often applies the auto hyperlink behavior irreversibly where we wouldn't like (ex: user.id), while at other times it doesn't apply it where we would like (ex: site.app).
One way to fix (1) could be: keep adding automatic hyperlinks to stuff like "user.id" (automatic hyperlinks are welcome when they are desired), but allow the user to hit "Ctrl+Z" and remove the link.
Another thing that would be lovely to be able to "Ctrl+Z", is the @tag and #tag automatic "links". I personally have never used either of those tag features, but they often get in my way of using the @ and # characters. I just would like to be able to undo the linking right at the moment. (Ps: I know I can add a dash in front, like -@tag, but that added noise compromises the feel and neatness of Workflowy for me almost or just as much as the undesirable tag/link formatting does).
