Description Regina Henschel 2018-12-01 14:30:51 UTC
The "Structure"-field in a user-defined index allows to set hyperlink-start(LS) and hyperlink-end (LE). But they do not generate a hyperlink.

The feature request for hyperlinks is in bug 71385.

This bug report is about the fact, that the UI gives an option, which does not really exists.
Comment 1 Gerhard Weydt 2018-12-19 17:49:37 UTC
This bug applies to a user-defined index in the strict sense, using index marks, but it works for a user-defined table of contents.
So it seems only one step to solve bug #71385 has been done but the rest is still missing.
I can reproduce it too in

Comment 2 Michael Stahl (CIB) 2019-01-08 10:13:49 UTC
IIRC Caolan added hyperlinks to some index or other?
Comment 3 Xisco Faulí 2019-01-16 22:45:50 UTC
I guess we can use the same version as bug 71385
Comment 4 Regina Henschel 2020-05-30 20:25:14 UTC
The hyperlinks work in Table of Figures, Index of Tables and Table of Objects in addition to TOC in LO 7.0, but still not in User-Defined index. To be clear, the link marks are in the entries and are preserved in save and reload, but they do not work as links. That is different from bug 71385, where hyperlinks neither exist in LO nor in ODF 1.3.
