Description osavill 2002-02-28 09:59:23 UTC
By default Word causes all lines in a TOC to act as hyperlinks. This is 
extremely annoying since trying to select the TOC by clicking in it almost 
always results in jumping to another page !

When imported into OO the hyperlinks are completely lost. Would it be possible 
to insert hyperlinks. Maybe around the "Entry Text" and the "Page Number" 
would be nice.

Michael: Please comment this in order to give an explanation of the current behavior before 
reassigning it to CJ.
Reassigned to Michael.

The import of hyperlinked indexes was not part of the filterlists
until now. 
I think, that one reason was, that the structure of those indexes in
Word is a bit weird. You can see this, when you use the "toggle field
codes" feature in Word, you can see that every entry of the index is a
seperate hyperlink field inside the TOC field. So it might be a bt
difficult to set the beginning/end of the hyperlinked parts on import.
A comment by ProdMan / Dev could be helpful in this case.

FT->AMA: This is your area now.

Caolán, our table of content is able to "hyperlink" the entries. It
could be enabled/disabled for every entry level. Is this sufficient
for import, at least for the most documents?
Comment 5 caolanm 2003-10-17 17:02:27 UTC
perhaps, accepted.
Comment 6 caolanm 2003-10-20 16:37:13 UTC
Ok, implemented for 2.0 in portlaoisefilterteam16, but we have an
outstanding problem with hyperlinks to "fake" content which will have
to be resolved to make this usable in word without using word's update

cmc->mru: Good in Fri-Nov-07-16-00 portlaoisefilterteam16 installset,
except for issue 21465 which is a general link to headings export issue.
Comment 11 michael.ruess 2003-11-19 12:34:02 UTC
Checked fix with CWS portlaoisefilterteam16. Import now uses
Hyperlinks for TOC's, when a Word doc also uses them for Web-Layout.
Comment 12 michael.ruess 2003-11-19 12:34:34 UTC
Verified. Fix will be included in OO 2.0.
Comment 13 michael.ruess 2004-01-28 08:44:55 UTC
Closed. Works in curren OO snapshot build 680m20.
