@Brando I’m still plagued by this, so I’ve got some more detail on how to reproduce it consistently.
Also for some reason I’m not able to get the Clear Styles to work. All of my other text styles disappear, however the dashed box persists.
My workaround so far is…
- Never ever allow a link to be the last thing in the paragraph. Always have plain text after it, even if it’s just a period.
- When select-deleting a link always select & delete at least one non-link character after the end of the link.
- If at any time the dashed box appears, undo your last change. Because once the dashed box appears there is no way to remove it ( including clear-all-styles ).
If you need to delete a link that IS at the end of the paragraph, unlink it first, before deleting that text.
