Description john 2018-03-05 12:27:45 UTC
I create a small text box in LibreOffice. I create the text "veolia woodlawn bioreactor" and then I make the box small enough that the text wraps, one word per line. Then select the last two words ('woodlawn bioreactor') and Insert->Hyperlink. I paste in the hyperlink 


After doing that, my word-wrapped text has un-wordwrapped, and now shows

woodlawn biore

(and the last bit of the word 'bioreactor' is chopped off).

After I press escape, I can see that my text was wordwrapped BADLY as follows

woodlawn bior

In summary, hyperlinks in LibreOffice are not properly treated as multiple words, but are instead wordwrapped as though they are one single word.

Preferred behaviour would be that hyperlinks are wordwrapped just like normal text (as they would be in a browser, for example).

Steps to Reproduce:
Description as above.

Actual Results:  
As above

Expected Results:
As above

Reproducible: Always
