Description Unknown 2002-05-31 12:27:47 UTC
Once an email address had been turned into a URL, you cannot edit it as you can 
in Writer.  If you misstype something you have to delete the whole thing and 
start over.

Try this:

- Go to the cell (do not click on the hyperlink, i.e. use cursor keys)
Menu Insert->Hyperlink

Expanding the cell so that there is white space allows me to enter 
the cell, but using the arrow keys, the cursor simply jumps from 
start to end or visa-versa.  It should be editable as it is in 
writer.  Using the cursor keys, you can go to the problem and add or 
delete characters.
  Selecting the URL then clicking the Insert -> Hyperlink allows me 
to edit, but it is extremenly user unfriendly as I don't think the 
average user would figure out that "Insert" means "Edit" in this case.
  One should be able to enter the cell and use the arrow keys to go 
to problem and add or delete characters as needed similar to the way 
writer handles hyperlinks.

Hi Falko,
1 4 U.
I think I complained to someone about this behaviour too.
Best regards, Peter

To edit an URL in Writer one can permanently switch from "HYP" to
"SEL" mode within the status bar. This allows tro easily edit hyperlinks.
It is desired to add this feature also to all other office
applications to make editing of Hyperlinks easier.
