Here is a nuisance that I'm encountering during my word processing using Apple Pages. Every time when I need to make an external link (http link) to some web page I need to make sure to edit the link field from to my desired one. Now this is not a problem if you need to do this procedure once or twice but you can imagine how frustrating this can get with more links.

I wonder if there is a preference to change this into say the one from the clipboard?

Any other suggestions on how to proceed in this case would be welcome.

In my experience, when you paste a link or write it out, you just need to go on typing and Pages automatically converts it to clickable text.

Yes, I'm aware of that feature. Thanks:) – Tigran Khanzadyan Jul 27 '11 at 21:55
