Notepad++ thinks punctuation and special characters at end of URL are part of the link

If there is punctuation (period, commna, exclamation point, etc) or special characters (parenthesis, braces, etc.) at the end of a URL, Notepad includes those characters as part of the link (see image below), so double clicking to open the link gives a 404 error in the browser. Is there anyway to exclude these characters from the link?

This will be fixed in next Notepad++ release (with new URL parser).

Yes, if you are creating your own URL text, do this:
( https://www.google.com )
Obviously, if there are URL text in documents you aren’t in charge of, this doesn’t help.
