Best way to display links on Nintex Form?

So, since the Attachments in Nintex Forms try to download rather than open in Office Online, and that doesn't appear to be fixable/customizable, I'm working on a workaround.

 

Leveraging both this SlideShare from Alan Richards and this great blogpost: Attachment links in 'Send e-mail'  I am able to successfully generate a link to the attachment which opens in Office Online Apps! Great! But now, they're ugly on the form. If I try to set them into a "Hyperlink" field, I can't set the "display text" and I'd have to have enough link fields for each attachment which, depending on how many, could be a really ugly and terrible deal. If I set them into a text field of any type (rich or not) it just puts the link, not clickable, and again, I have no way to make it pretty.

 

I tried to mess with the Calculated Field to see if I could get something going, but couldn't quite get there. Any tips or suggestions?
