Enable automatic URL recognition while wrapping text with <a> tag

  • If this checkbox is cleared and you attempt to wrap an URL address with the <a> tag, PyCharm simply encloses the URL address in <a href=""></a> and positions the cursor inside the double quotes in the href attribute. For example, wrapping will result in <a href="|"></a>:

    emmet recognize url off

  • If this checkbox is selected and you attempt to wrap an URL address with the <a> tag, PyCharm inserts the URL address inside the double quotes as the value of the href attribute and encloses the URL in <a href="<wrapped URL>"></a>. For example, wrapping will result in <a href=""></a>. Moreover, PyCharm highlights the wrapped URL green as a recognized URL:
