Description ivand 2010-02-15 08:23:55 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
- start a new presentation, type in a text, mark it, use "insert hyperlink"
- press F1, find "hyperlinks > character formats" or "hyperlinks > editing". 
Both documents suggest to change attribute of all hyperlinks by opening Styles 
and Formatting > Character Styles > right-clicking the "Internet Link" or 
"Visited Internet Link" character style > Modify.
- when following the instructions, you'll find out that there is no such 
character style as "Internet Link" or "Visited Internet Link"

Googling has confirmed to me the documentation says a bullshit and the problem 
has no viable solution except temporary changing styles of all hyperlinks in all 
documents on your Openoffice installation without a chance to save this change 
to the style of your document. Which sucks indeed if you are handed the 
obligatory enterprise template made in Microsoft Office... <insert complaints

Reproducible. It seems that the impress help shows pages that are actually ment
for writer. Reassigned.

Hmm... I expected a solution that would allow me to change the hyperlink colour 
while you seem to "solve" it by removing the howto instructions instead? Oops...

We will fix the documentation to reflect the current feature set of Impress & Draw.
Resetting this issue to "requirements" as a feature request.
