Hyperlink Properties

P: n/a
I have a textbox on a form which has hyperlink as the data type.

The default format for a hyperlink is a file or web link. Is it possible
change the default to an email address for all records without the need to
select hyperlink/edit hyperlink/select email address for every record?

TIA

There's no setting for the default type.

Personally, I gave up using a Hyperlink type for storing email addresses. I
find it easier to use a Text type field, and then use the properties and
events of the text box to make it look and behave like a link.
