Description sophia 2002-11-24 01:37:09 UTC
I read the issues 6975,7749 and 7311.
I don't think that
1.  Select the text.
2.  Right click and select the option "Character"
3.  Choose the "Hyperlink" tab.
is a natural way to use
for removing a hyperlink.
I found this way
by searching in oo issues
because I wanted to say
that we could not suppress an hyperlink.

My opinion:
- Hyperlink should not be linked (for end-user)
  to a characters but instead
  to a group of characters.
- Why selecting the text ?
  Right clicking on the link isn't enought ?

I propose a more natural way.
Right click on the hyperlink text.
Then you get an 'hyperlink' entry
because text you were on was a hyperlink.
Selecting the entry open a dialog box
which allows to suppress the link.

I put a relative high priority
for this issue
because I can't export proper RTF
with hyperlink.
Micro$oft Word 97 writes on the place
of the text of the link:
"Erreur! Référence de lien hypertexte non valide"

Please try using the latest OOo 1.1 Rc4, 
Your version already old enough, and many bug fixes since your version 
and 1.1 RC4. If the problem still happend in 1.1 RC4 please report back
Comment 3 Rainer Bielefeld 2003-10-08 07:10:20 UTC
I agree, removing a hyperlink actually is not a "natural" way.

Additionally, no one will understand why it is impossible to remove a
hyperlink from some text by using the hyperlink dialog, as I tied:

1. mark text with hyperlink
2. click OOo-button "Hyperlink dialogue"
3. delete hyperlink target
4. "Apply" and OK
   Expected: Hyperlink will be removed from Text
   Actual: not removed

Same with rightclick "Characters":
11. mark text with hyperlink
12. rightclick,  "Characters", card "Hyperlink"
13. delete hyperlink URL
14. "Apply" and OK
    Expected: Hyperlink will be removed from Text
    Actual: as expected

So: NEW, but it is not so very important, so P4
It is a DEFECT if it is not possible to delete a hyperlink in the
special hyperlink dialog (see steps 1. to 4.), so --> DEFECT and TM 2.0

Reporter, I can not reproduce your "error-problem" with 1.1.0 German
version WIN98SE: 645m19(Build8693).

Because we can only handle one bug per issue, we will ignore this
problem here. If the bug still exists for you with OOo 1.1.0 , please
open a new issue for "Erreur! Référence de lien hypertexte non valide"
- problem.

Utomo, _please_ stop that stereotype "please try latest version ...."
commenting. This is a truism and not helful at all for issuese which
can be reproduced easily like this one.

This is a DUP of issue 7311

*** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of 7311 ***
Comment 6 Martin Hollmichel 2005-01-18 15:08:14 UTC
close issue.
Comment 7 Oliver Specht 2008-11-07 14:40:33 UTC
As issue 7311 handled the context menu I'm reopening this one for the dialog.
Component changed to framework as it applies to all modules supporting hyperlinks
Comment 8 sophia 2009-04-30 13:04:55 UTC
Currently, how to detach an hyperlink from the text ?
Comment 9 Mathias_Bauer 2009-05-25 16:16:02 UTC
As os has written: there's a new feature: "remove hyperlink" in context menu of
a hyperlink
Comment 10 bettina.haberer 2010-05-21 16:13:21 UTC
Changed the owner to 'requirements'.
Comment 11 sophia 2010-05-21 19:24:36 UTC
I think this feature has now a lower priority since we can now remove the
hyperlink from the contextual menu.

However, I didn't see the way to remove the link from the menu bar.

We should be able to remove the hyperlink:
- either from the hyperlink dialog
- or from the menu bar.
