Description defrost 2006-11-03 13:46:56 UTC
When a presentation with links is exported to flash the links are stripped.
Instead the whole presentation is clickable which advances to next slide.

I would prefer if the links remains active. A click anywhere else than on a link
should advances the presentation to next slide.

Successfully replicated in Open 3.3.0 Build 9567 on Windows 7 64-bit

Exporting an ODF Presentation that contains a hyperlink to a Macromedia Flash file (.swf) causes the hyperlink to be removed. This results in text that appears to be a link but is un-clickable.

Users expect the original functionality of their presentation to remain the same. Since the project loses the hyperlink when it is exported this could be problematic.

Steps to Reproduce
1.	Open Open Office Impress 3.3.0
2.	Create an empty presentation
3.	Type: “Test” where it says “Click to add title”
4.	Type: “” where it says “Click to add text”
5.	Press enter to turn it into a hyperlink
6.	Go to File ->Export…
7.	Type: “Test” as the file name
8.	Save as type: Macromedia Flash (.swf)
9.	Press save
10.	Navigate to the previously saved file and open with Macromedia Flash
11.	The link should not be clickable
12.	Close file

Expected Results
The link should be able to be clicked like it was before it was exported.

Actual Results
The link is un-clickable and it just appears to be a hyper link but functions like regular text.

Follow-up tests
1.	Tried to use the File->Save as function in Impress and saved the file with a .swf extension. The result was a Flash file with a blank page.
2.	Inserted a picture instead of text and hyperlinked it. The results were the same as the bug.
3.	Exported as an HTML file which saves two files one with a .htm extension and one with a .html extension. Opened both with Google Chrome. The one with the .htm extension appears to have the same problem as this bug.

This was not hard to reproduce, especially after Kiah Jones' comments.
Defrost's description of the issue is enough for me to reproduce it, however I would like to have a bit more detail and a walkthrough of how to reproduce it.

This bug could be a bit of a problem if someone is to give a presentation of something and had done the excact same thing. Imagine their suprise/chock when they notice that the links are not working.
