1) Open Writer

4) Open the styles & formatting sidebar deck and click on the character styles button
5) Notice that 'Default Style' character style is selected rather than 'Internet Link'

Repro 6.2+ from scratch. 
For some reason, behaves correctly with attachment 112853 [details] from 88846.

However, I wonder what actually happens internally in LO to apply the "Internet Link" and "Visited Internet Link" styles to links. It seems to be somehow hardcoded.

Using the new UNO Inspector (see attached image), notice that the hyperlink actually has no char style applied. That is why the "No Character Style" option is selected by default.

If I manually apply a character style to a link, LO sort of merges both styles... for example, applying the "Emphasis" style to a link makes the link italic and also applies the color and underline to the text. And now if you select the text, it shows that the "Emphasis" style is applied.

IMO there are 2 possible outcomes:
1) This is NAB and documentation should highlight this behavior
2) This is indeed a bug and the style name should appear in the CharStyleName property

Comment 10 V Stuart Foote 2024-04-24 16:47:08 UTC
Still reproduced.

But with Spotlight of Applied character styles enabled--shift Stylist deck from CS to PS and back--and the CS for the Hyperlinks is picked up.

But seems an issue with the Spotlight applying to canvas for the Hyperlinks. They are styled as visited on document canvas, but the applied spotlight notes them just as hyperlinks.

And a bit less clear with changes for bug 132253 to remove the Hyperlink formatting from the Character dialog.
