Remove "Links to an External site" when pasting links

If I copy and paste a link from another canvas page, it brings the link itself as well as the text, which is lovely, but every time it pastes it it includes the text "Links to an external site" as part of the link text. This is potentially useful for students who have never used the internet before, but rarely helpful otherwise, especially when pasting a list of links or a paragraph with multiple links in it. Is there any way to turn it off by default?

Hello @bernardo ...

Nope.  I've experienced the same thing you have with those links, and I always just have to manually remove that text from the links.

Hope this helps to answer your question...even though it's not the answer you were probably looking for.
