i am unable to scroll the cursor (using the keyboard) to the middle of a link
(in the text) or right click it to get to change it.

once i made a link, it seems lost. 

if i want to change it i need to delete it and made a new one.

i expect that right clicking a link will have a properties menu entry of the
clicked object or "edit this link's url" menu entry.

When you select the text link with the mouse (so it gets inverted) you can edit
it by opening the hyperlink dialog. The rest us true but it would be an
enhancement. Reassigned.
Comment 2 nadavkav 2009-01-05 14:16:52 UTC
you are right.
i finally managed to select it by double clicking it
and then i was able to change it when clicking the link icon
which, in turn, opened the link properties dialog.

i guess the rest is an improvement wish :-)

After highlighting a hyperlink, there is a Open Hyperlink item added to the right-click menu. This "Open Hyperlink" item may confuse a user expecting to also find an item to open the hyperlink properties dialog so it would seem to be a reasonable enhancement to add such an item to the right-click menu immediately below or above that item.
