Is there a way to unlink the email field?

Hello All,

 

On Act 6.0, I notice that in my email field, which is set as characters, it highlights and makes the email address

entered a link that calls an email program. I don't use email with act, simply copy and paste that email address

that appears in the email field in my eudora email program.

 

How can I make it just display the contents of that email address in the email field without having it linked in blue and call an email program?

Yes to standard behaviour and No to disabling it.

Wait a couple seconds and it switches to edit rather than linked.

Re: Is there a way to unlink the email field?

when the record is open though it always stays linked, my question query actually was to never have it linked in the first place?

is that possible?

If you place your cursor over the field for two or three seconds it will switch to edit mode and you can copy the email address.

Hi Roy,

 

Thank you for your email. Yes, I know that, however, I was wondering if that is standard behavior and

is there a way not to link email addresses and just show the email address.

 

Thanks so much for your help

You could create a new field, make it a character field and use that for emails
