Description Frank Schönheit 2005-06-02 09:00:29 UTC
If you have a bibliography entry referring to an online document, you will
usually format the Bibliography Index to contain the URL of the document.
Currently, there is no possibility to format this URL as hyperlink - that is,
the reader of the document can click onto it to open the referred document.

Would be nice to have some "[X] Hyperlink" checkbox, or something like this, on
the "Entries" tab page of the "Edit Index/Table" dialog, which tells OOo to
interpret and format the selected structural item as Hyperlink.

This issue still remains unresolved (OOo 3.2). I tried to put the appropriate
character style (web link) onto the URLs, it doesn't do the trick. 
I have a (quite bad) workaround, however : I allow the bibliography to remain
editable, & reedit it. Just put the cursor at the end of the (expected)
hyperlinks, and type a space in order to see the (inactive) hyperlink magically
transformed into a real hyperlink.
