So, I found a way around this but I'm sure there's a better way to do an insert link (from the menu or Ctrl L).  What happens to me is that I'm typing along and want to put in a link ... that works fine but now anything I type after that is included in the link text ... how do I stop that?

My solution was to type a bit more and then go back and insert that link in the text.  That works but ...

Hi Bob.

Try pressing the right arrow key after inserting the link. That works for me.
Use insert link from the menu and type the link into the box it gives you.

I do it Lynda’s way for G2G.  It’s that tiny Chain-looking icon above, just to the right of the Bold A.

Yep, I have no trouble with the entry of the link and the text ... the problem is once I exit/save the link and if I type some more it's all part of the link ... so here I go: Here's the link text and now here is some more typing

Dunno, that doesn’t seem to happen to me. I seem to be able to keep going.

There is an unlink icon (to the right of the link icon) that can remove the unwanted link, Bob. Just highlight the text that you don't want as a link, then click the icon.

After a few corrections, it becomes second nature!!
