OK, where do I turn that annoying auto-hyperlink feature off? It drives me absolutely loopy to type an email address or URL in a Word file and have the dratted thing turn live and sport the underline! What a giant pain in the bum that is!

Elyse:

I thought killing hyperlinks was a standard command, but on looking for it I find that I've got a macro for it:

"Sub KillLink()
Dim oDoc As Document
Dim oStory As Range
Dim oHlink As Hyperlink

For Each oStory In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges
For Each oHlink In oStory.Hyperlinks
oHlink.Delete
Next
Next

End Sub"

I don't know where I got that, but it works; I've got it as an icon in my Word toolbar. Unfortunately, 'Insert hyperlink' is a standard Word command, and it's on everyone's toolbar if they haven't removed it.

The thing to un-tick is under 'Tools/Auto-correct', the Auto-format tab.

qXport <http://www.bitmix.de/english/>, written by by former DTP Forum sysop Thomas Kalschmidt, converts Word files into XPress or InDesign tags. For cleaning up your files while still in Word, I heartily recommend Editors Toolkit+ <http://editorium.com/>.

Found it. Thanks much. On my setup it seems to be available only with a document open, so cannot be set as a default preference. Bummer, if so, because I cannot think of a time when I'd want Word to create hyperlinks for me.
