Description Unknown 2003-07-07 15:49:10 UTC
Please add this feature:
When an HTML hyperlink to another HTML file is clicked, open a new OO window with that HTML 
file, with the cursor at the location of the anchor specified by the link, if any. Currently, OO instead 
opens the linked file in the web browser, but that is not helpful for editing HTML or for linking 
documents that are not used as web pages.

MS Word has this feature, but Internet Explorer may have to be removed from the hard disk to get 
it to work properly.

Dreamweaver follows a link to the web browser by default, but a right-click (control-click) can be 
used to follow the link within the application. This does not work properly when an anchor is 
involved in the Mac OS X version.

With this feature, OO would meet my HTML-editing and document-linking needs better than Word 
and Dreamweaver.

SBA: Reassigned to Bettina from the User Experience team for consideration.

It might be an idea of checking this is actually a cross-platform issue, rather 
than a Mac OS X specific one.
Comment 3 rvojta 2009-01-26 08:07:39 UTC
This is definitely not Mac OS X issue. All platforms are involved.

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