Description ddaniels 2002-09-16 19:31:25 UTC
test case
create a normal text document
include a hyperlink in the document
select all
set your text style to default
hyperlinks are still active (undesired behavior)

second test case

create a normal text document
include a hyperlink in the document
select hyperlinked text
right click
select default
hyperlink disappears (desired behavior)

setting all text to default should wipe hyperlinks as it does when you
individually select hyperlinks

workarounds for eliminating all hyperlinks in a text document aside from saving
it as simple text? rtf does not work at removing at hyperlinks.

thank you

Dennis, thanks for posting this issue.

If you don't want hyperlinks in your document, you can always turn 
off URL recognition in Tools->AutoCorrect/AutoFormat->Options.

You can always select all the text, right click and choose "Default".

If these options are not reasonable, please change this issue to an 
enhancement request.

Thank you for using and supporting OOo.

In OO 2.0 it's much better - I can select the text and choose "Format/Default
Formatting" to get rid of pre-existing links.

BTW, the suggestion about turning off the URL recognition is useful, but a bit
off-topic. It won't help if a user wants to remove an existing hyperlink.

In OO 1.1 it's extremely frustrating - the conversion from ordinary text to URL
is irreversible, one can only select the URL, call the URL edit dialog box, copy
the text, close the dialog, paste somewhere near, then delete the URL....

However, the current "Default Formatting" is not intuitive for some users, too.

Many users expect to simply right-click on the URL, and find the "Remove
hyperlink" command there (or maybe "convert hyperlink to text"?).

This issue is similar to 7311.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
