Description muso 2018-12-03 02:55:23 UTC
Hyperlinks to IDN websites are broken

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert a hyperlink to a website of your choice that contains non-ASCII characters (Internationalized domain name, IDN)
2. try to Ctrl+click on the link to get to the website

result: LO issues an error of a missing file despite the link is no file link but a weblink. The bug is definitively that LO doesn't handle the non-ASCII character not correctly in the URL field. See also the attached simple example file.

IDNs are already widely supported thus LO should support them too because they become more and more popular.

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
