Start & wait for approval email

I am creating a flow which sends a mail to a primary & secondary approver. The "details" section and even the "item link" appear as a picture within the mail, so the approver , for example, cannot click on the link. Is there anyway around this please ? Thanks

I have tested this and found no problem.

Can you please share screen of your flow?

Is this an issue for all approvers of just one of them?  How are they accessing their email?  Not all email clients can deal with the approval emails.  If they are using the Outlook desktop client, make sure that they are using the most current version.

I am using the flow for purchase requisition approval. At the end of the "start & wait for an approval" process I have added a link.

When the first approver receives an email for approval, the link ( like the rest of the message ) is an image and can't be selected. Please advise if it is possible to have either the whole message ( or just the link ) as a normal mail rather than an image. Thanks again for your help
