### pdflatex - hyperlink seems to extend too long across the page

OS: Kubuntu 18.04
Lyx 2.2.3
Class: Article

I was testing adding a hyperlink in but when it outputs to pdf, it extends way too long across to the right of the page (see pic below). I tried inserting the same hyperlink to the 'text' field but it doesn't make a difference, it doesn't break it down to the next line.

Thanks in advance, let me know if I've missed anything.

I don't see the picture. Please upload it to the forum as an attachment.

For URLs, you should use the url package.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

The picture is a link, can you try clicking again or viewing on a different browser?

It's easy to attach a picture here. The "Attachments" link is below the text editing field, when writing a post.

Here you can see how nicely it works at the margin by default:

\documentclass{article}\usepackage{url}\begin{document}\section{Test}Some long test to see the justification of lest and right margin.This is just a test. See:\url{https://www.reddit.com/r/learnprogramming/comments/61oly8/new_read_me_first/}\end{document}

Click on "Open in Overleaf" above the code, to see it.

Your document does something different. We can find it out, if you make a pdfLaTeX export in LyX and post it here, as attachment.
