Description Spaz 2018-08-19 13:48:56 UTC
After entering data in the "Hyperlink" dialog, the field "Name" data doesn't stay persistent in THAT particular field after clicking the "Apply" button. The other fields seem to stay persistently.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate and Open "Hyperlink" dialog box for editing.
2. Enter a web URL in the "URL:" field, and then Navigate to the "Text:" field repeating additional data entry.   
3. Navigate to the "Name" field, enter some text in the field.
4. Click the "Apply" button, then click the "Close" or "OK" button(s). 

Actual Results:
After editing in this dialog box ONLY the "URL:" field and the "Text:" field hold data. The data in the "Name:" field erases after clicking the "Apply" button.

Expected Results:
The data that was entered in the "Name:" field should hold the data, as with the other fields in this dialog box.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
The purpose of ANY and ALL data entry is to store that data entered until EXPLICIT action is performed, by the end-user; to change that data as necessary.

Inherited from OOo happens also wit AOo 4.1

I can confirm this with:

Build ID: 1:6.2.2-0ubuntu0.18.04.1~lo1
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 4.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: en-AU (en_AU.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

What is the purpose of the Name field, by the way?

Good question. Set to lowest possible priority since no one has ever indicated why this has any meaning.
