Description Joe Smith 2007-05-15 06:29:48 UTC
1. File > New > Spreadsheet
2. Tools > AutoCorrect > Options > URL recognition = ON
3. Tools > Cell Contents > AutoInput = ON
4. In cell A1, type: <Enter>
   * The link will be recognized and activated.
5. In cell A2, type: w (completion --> <Enter>
   * The link is not recognized.

Now, edit the inactive plain text link to prepend "http://"...

6. In cell A2, hit F2 (into edit mode)
   <Home> http:// <Enter>
   * The link is recognized but converted to the invalid link "http://www"

Expected result: The link should be converted to ""

Confirming with 2.2 on WinXP - as described.
Issue is related RFE.

I think this is from the break iterator which interprets the first dot as a
break and therefore converts only the first part of the string to a link.

As a workaround : Place the cursor at the end of the line and press return. The
link gets converted.

Point 5 of the description seems to be the single point of interesst in this
case. Seems to be the edit engine, therefore one for you.

I believe this issue can be closed.

Testing AOO 4.0 on Fedora Linux, I cannot reproduce the problem. The autocompleted URL is correct and recognized normally on entry.
