    It is found that all browsers except IE do not auto convert text into hyperlink. eg. abc@xyz.com is auto created to a link - <a href="mailto:abc@xyz.com">abc@xyz.com</a> in IE


    I want to know what is the way to avoid hyperlink creation in IE.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Information of how to disable this IE feature can be found in the following stack overflow article: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3519665/disable-automatic-url-detection-for-elements-with-contenteditable-flag-in-ie/7568958#7568958

    As noted in the stackoverflow article, that solution doesn't work in IE11.

    Hi Wes,

    It appeared that Internet Explorer 11 does not support the AutoUrlDetect property of the execCommand method as one can see in this MSDN article: Commands A-C and this is regression.

    Since the auto URL creation functionality is entirely controlled by the browser (IE), it is up to the browser developers to provide an option to enable/disable it for the editable content area elements such as the content area of Kendo Editor.

    Best regards,
