Description jolatt 2013-06-25 18:21:55 UTC
In Options -> -> Security -> Options: "Ctrl-click required to follow hyperlinks" is set.

I would expect that this setting affects all AOO components not only writer, since the setting is part of the general preferences. 

Hyperlinks in Calc, Draw and Impress can be activated by a single click even with this option set.

Confirmed on Rev. 1491860 Debian.
Comment 2 Rob Weir 2013-06-25 20:38:01 UTC
Confirmed in OOo 3.3.0 as well.  So this is not new behavior. 

The online help describes this setting generically.  It does not restrict it to Writer.  So I'm classifying this as a defect, not an request for enhancement.
Comment 3 Rainer Bielefeld 2013-06-27 08:41:40 UTC
So it is, very old bug, already in OOo 3.1.

I doubt that related LibO Bug contains additional useful info
Comment 4 jolatt 2014-07-04 06:29:24 UTC
This behavior was introduced as security feature, AFAIK.

Therefore I don't understand, why this bug is still activ.

Not fixed in AOO 4.1.2 RC2
