Description Ulrich Windl 2015-04-16 06:44:45 UTC
When you enter an URI at the end of a paragraph, the URI is "autocorrected" to a hyperlink if you press Enter to start the next paragraph. When trying to undo just the autoformatting by pressing ^Z, the new paragraph is also undone _before_ the autocorrection is undone. That is: Effectively you cannot undo just the autoformatting of the URI (unexpected behavior).
However if you don't start a new paragraph, but just press Space the URI is auto-corrected also, but with a single ^Z (undo) you can undo just the autoformatting (expected bahavior).

Comment 2 Ulrich Windl 2015-04-20 06:42:04 UTC
I found out that it's not only happening for URIs, but for any type of autocorrection that happens after you press enter to start a new paragraph (so I changed the summary accordingly).
Changing the priority to "trivial": So is it expected be be fixed very easily (and very soon), or does it mean daily usage is hardly affected? If you mean the latter, I strongly object: It causes a lot of extra efforts in daily usage!
Comment 3 Ulrich Windl 2015-04-20 06:44:54 UTC
My work-around goes like this (explaining comment #2): Add a space at the end of the paragraph, the press ^Z to undo the formatting change, then start a new paragraph, then go up and delete the extra space added.

Fair enough, let's set it to medium - minor then: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/images/0/06/Prioritizing_Bugs_Flowchart.jpg
