Some test cases with the bug.

Writers offers the possibility to insert hyperlinks into text documents and open the links either with a left mouse Click or with Ctrl + Click. I tested this function for several cases and found some cases where the function is erroneous. In order to reproduce these issues, open the attachment and test some of these cases.

These error patterns occur alone or together:
(1) The tip with the hint how to follow a hyperlink and with the URL of the hyperlink is not displayed.
(2) The appearance of the mouse pointer does not change to a symbol with a hand.
(3) The appearance of the mouse pointer changes the appearance at a wrong situation to the symbol with a hand.
(4) Click or Crtl+Click does not open the hyperlink in your browser.

Sounds to me like a duplicate of bug 112543, although you mentioned some more cases. What do you suggest, Harald?

Bug 112543 complains about 2 things: The missing context menu and that the hyperlink can't be opened, if it is in a text box. The first thing is not described in this bug report. The second thing is described in more detail in this report. Hence I suggest, that in bug 112543 only the context menu problem should be treated further on. Then there is no intersection between both reports and each bug can be pursued independently.

Comment 4 Dieter 2018-12-10 10:25:27 UTC
Links in text and links in tables (following the description in your attachment: Can't reproduce

Links in shapes and links in textboxes: I can reproduce (although I wont expect, that link works, if textbox or shap is selected.

So I propose to narrow down the bug summary to shapes and textboxes and change it to NEW. But then it seems like a duplicate of bug 121014 plus "Ctrl + Click does not work, if cursor is inside a form or a shape". What do you think, Harald?

Example document in order to reproduce the bug

Yes, we can narrow down the bug to text boxes and shapes:

Do this:
[1] Ensure that option “LibreOffice > Security > Options... > Ctrl+Click required to follow hyperlinks” is checked. 
[2] Open example document 2.
[3] Put the cursor into a text box with a double-click.
[4] Move mouse pointer above hyperlink of this text box and then above the hyperlink in normal text. Expected: In both cases display of a tip: “Ctrl+Click to follow...” and no symbol change of the mouse pointer. Observed: With the mouse pointer above the text box no tip is displayed and the mouse pointer changes its appearance to “Hand”.
[5] Move mouse pointer above the second text box. Also in this case no tip is displayed and the mouse pointer changes its appearance.

The behaviour is the same if you use shapes like rectangles, circles, etc... instead of text boxes.

Last comment is covered by bug 121014, so let's dupe to it.

Regarding comment 5 of this report there is a difference between bug 121014 and this bug: In bug 121014 the cursor is somewhere in the text. In this bug it is in a text box (see step 3). In this case the behaviour is different to bug 121014. Hence it is not a dupe of bug 121014. So set status back to UNCONFIRMED.

If it is not a duplicate, we can change status to NEW (see comment 4)
