test case create a normal text document include a hyperlink in the document select all set your text style to default hyperlinks are still active (undesired behavior) second test case create a normal text document include a hyperlink in the document select hyperlinked text right click select default hyperlink disappears (desired behavior) setting all text to default should wipe hyperlinks as it does when you individually select hyperlinks workarounds for eliminating all hyperlinks in a text document aside from saving it as simple text? rtf does not work at removing at hyperlinks. thank you Dennis

Dennis, thanks for posting this issue. If you don't want hyperlinks in your document, you can always turn off URL recognition in Tools->AutoCorrect/AutoFormat->Options. You can always select all the text, right click and choose "Default". If these options are not reasonable, please change this issue to an enhancement request. Thank you for using and supporting OOo.

In OO 2.0 it's much better - I can select the text and choose "Format/Default Formatting" to get rid of pre-existing links. BTW, the suggestion about turning off the URL recognition is useful, but a bit off-topic. It won't help if a user wants to remove an existing hyperlink. In OO 1.1 it's extremely frustrating - the conversion from ordinary text to URL is irreversible, one can only select the URL, call the URL edit dialog box, copy the text, close the dialog, paste somewhere near, then delete the URL.... However, the current "Default Formatting" is not intuitive for some users, too. Many users expect to simply right-click on the URL, and find the "Remove hyperlink" command there (or maybe "convert hyperlink to text"?).

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
