Modifying simple hyperlink seems to work. So it looks like problem is with changing hyperlink in design mode, with either document or internet hyperlink.

You only need to activate design mode after saving a file, but with a blank document design mode is already on.

repro 24.2+

Note that since LO 6.4 the existing link does not work, because "Slide" has changed to "Page" internally.
See LO 6.4 942d1d2ea59bf4605f2c464a6b29c967fa9f8de8.

The URL can be changed by the control's properties.
Comment 8 Justin L 2023-11-01 16:03:46 UTC
The problem seems to lie in DrawViewShell::InsertURLButton. While we have
SdrInventor::FmForm == pMarkedObj->GetObjInventor()
we don't have
pMarkedObj->GetObjIdentifier() == SdrObjKind::FormButton
because it is a SdrObjKind::UNO.
