Displaying underlying URLs

I have a file with styled text, which appears like this:

সত্যের পুজারি1 week ago

"Under" the first two words (which are of variable length) is one URL, and under the "date" (here, 1 week ago), is another URL. There is no space between the two different hyperlinked texts, making selecting them challenging.

I am trying to figure out if there's a way to turn the underlying URLs into text while keeping them associated with the text they're connected to, sort of like this:

সত্যের পুজারি <URL1> 1 week ago <URL2>

I seem to be able to highlight text and using the Insert => Hyperlink menu, add the link to a file or bookmark, but I can't seem to just copy it into the copy buffer, for instance. And removing the URL makes it disappear altogether, entirely undesirable.

Of course I can click on the link and copy the URL from the browser, but I'd like to avoid leaving NWP if possible, as I have thousands of these bits to process.

Is this possible?

Hello Vika,
if you use <control>-click the link you should see options such as "Edit Link" and "Copy Link".

But if you have 'thousands' of such links let me suggest that you use a macro.
