Incorrect Links Answered

For the last month or so, when I place multiple links near each other in my instructables, one tends to copy the other. So, while I copy and paste the proper url into each separate link, they end up being the same. It's happened multiple times with multiple instructables. I've been able to fix it, but it usually takes a couple tries for it to stick.

I've noticed the same thing.

I noticed that too ages ago, comes and goes for me with no reason.
As we all love our workarounds I am doing links in the HTML editor.
The manual way works most of the times this way:

Where you want a link in a text press enter,
paste the link (or use the button in the menu),
press enter again - now there should be the right link visible.
Remove the previously made extra lines and the link is where it should be.

At least for me this way in 99% of cases the links are correct but if in doubt, especially if I know there are more links to come I paste them in the HTML editor.
