Hyperlinks in ios Mac Mail

Hi all. I’m trying to use the “Create Hyperlink” shortcut to create hyperlinks in Mac Mail on my iPad. In short, I want to have the same functionality that I typically have on my laptop by typing cmd K and pasting the url.

It’s stunning to me after all these years this functionality is still not possible. What workarounds are you using? I know I can create the email in another app and paste it into Mail, but I’d rather not go that route for typical use.

I thought the shortcut above would work, but every time I try it just says, “enter link text” and I’m not sure what to do. The URL is already on my clipboard.
