Removing a Link

Removing a link is just as easy as adding it. When the cursor is placed in a link, the  button on the toolbar becomes active. Pressing the button removes the link and leaves plain text. Alternatively you can also open the CK Editor menu by pressing the right mouse button and choose the Unlink command.
