Description Jean-Baptiste Faure 2016-08-23 10:43:34 UTC
In the case where the VCL plugin GTK3 is used, pointing the mouse to an hyperlink does not show its tooltip. It works if the plugin is GTK2.

Comment 3 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2016-08-27 06:39:30 UTC
As it works in previous versions with GTK2, set keyword regression.

Confirmed on LibreOffice on openSUSE Tumbleweed
Comment 5 Xisco Faulí 2016-09-01 08:18:30 UTC
Adding Caolan to the loop as he has done the GTK3 porting.
Comment 6 Caolán McNamara 2016-09-01 08:51:19 UTC
I think the problem is that writer is claiming that the tooltip area for the hyperlink is a pixel width line at the current cursor point. If the whole area of the hyperlink is reported the problem should like go away.
