Undo a link

Hey,

A client just asked how to undo a link in a newsletter. She inserted a link into her newsletter, but wanted to remove it. I was looking at it myself and couldn't find another way except for going through the source code. Is there a different solution for this problem?

Thanks,
Kathleen

Hi Kathleen, welcome to the forums! If it's a recent change, you can use the Ctrl-Z keyboard shortcut to undo the link. Otherwise, you can delete the linked text in the editor and re-type it. These aren't particularly elegant solutions, I'm sorry to say - do you think a 'remove link' option would be of benefit in the WYSIWYG editor?

I think it might be helpful to add a remove link option somewhere in the WYSIWYG. It's more user friendly in my opinion. Unfortunately not everyone has the html know how to alter the link in the source or enough patience to re-type the linked text. A lot of people use Campaign Monitor because of it's simple and user friendly interface. Everything is in a logical place. And I do feel that this is a feature that should be there in the editor somewhere. That's of course my two cents on this.

Hi Kathleen,

Actually, if your client highlights that linked text and right clicks, a menu will pop up allowing her to edit the link or unlink the text. No source code editing necessary.
