Description Joe Smith 2006-09-27 06:13:55 UTC
Hyperlinks enclosed in plain text become inactive when the cell contents are
center- or right-aligned.

Steps to reproduce:

1. File > New > Spreadsheet
2. Enter this text in any cell: Visit today
   On typing the space after "" the site name should be 
   automatically recognized and converted into a hyperlink.
3. Test the hyperlink: the mouse cursor should change shape when hovering over
the link .
4. Select the cell with the text/link and change the horizontal alignment to
5. Test the hyperlink again--it is no longer active.

See attached Calc document for an example.

Please can you replicate the issue with version 2.1

Comment 4 jolatt 2006-12-28 10:06:01 UTC
With the attached document I found this:
As decribed the shape of the mouse cursor doesn't change, but the link can be
activated by double click.

I tried this in a new document by entering another text with a link. Behaviour
is o.k. Copying the text/link from the attached document the behaviour is buggy
as described.

OOo 2.1
Comment 5 jolatt 2006-12-28 10:17:45 UTC
After trying it again I can confirm the bug with the new document. Shape of
mouse cursor doesn't change, when 'center' or 'right'. Activating with double
click is possible.

Confirming jolatt's report using 2.1.0 [680m6(9095), from] on Fedora 5.

The double-click activation seems to be related to putting the cell into edit
mode. If I highlight the cell and hit F2, then the link behaves normally: the
mouse cursor changes to the pointing finger and the link activates with a single
click, no matter what the cell alignment is.

Confirming (2.1 OS X). Changing summary ("are inactive" -> "appear inactive").
