Any way to edit the color of followed hyperlinks in 3rd Gen?

Any way to edit the color of followed hyperlinks in 3rd Gen?


I was wondering if there were some way to change the color of followed links in the new editor. Now they all default to purple and we'd like the option to change that or keep them highlighted.  It was easy to do in the old editor but I can't seem to find an option for this in the new one.

Hi @RoverLibrary,


Thank you for reaching out to us through the Community. At this time, we do not have the ability to change the followed hyperlinks in the new Third-Generation editor. I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. As a workaround, I would suggest to highlight the hyperlinked text itself to the color of your choosing. The text itself will still default to purple, but the highlighted background color should remain even after the text has been clicked. For more information on text styles, please click here. With that being said, I have submitted a request to our developers regarding this feature. Let us know if you need assistance with anything else.
