[Solved] How to delete or remove a hyperlink

I have a list of email addresses in one of my columns; I do not want them to be hyperlinked. I imported the data from MS Office Excel and the imported data are not hyperlinked; however, new entries into Calc are hyperlinked. I have looked at the hyperlink options and remove hyperlink does not seem to be an option. Is there a way to remove a hyperlink while keeping the text? Is there a way to turn off hyperlink recognition in Calc? I have read that you can do this in the word processing software.

Thanks!

To convert the links to plain text, select the cells containing links and do: Format > Default

To turn off the recognition, do: Tools > Autocorrect > Options > URL Recognition = OFF

That setting will apply to all the OOo apps.

Wow that isn't the least bit intuitive or easy to use.

I know I'm resurrecting a dead thread, but this is the first thing that pops up in a google search for this issue.
Unfortunately, "default formatting" removes specialized bullets in a slideshow (and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to insert those specific blue arrow bullets, no not the ones with a shadow from the bullets menu) and URL recognition is already off. This is infuriating...

Sorry, I'm not sure I understand what you're doing/looking for.

Why don't you start a new topic and explain exactly what you're doing and what the problem is. Are you using Calc? You mentioned a presentation?

It might be simpler to explain if you attach a small sample document on the new topic, so we can see just what you're working with.

The viewer asked if you can remove URLs then not have the appearance of the cell change.
