The Draw TextBox is exported to OOXML .xlsx, but there is no _rels or .rels relationships file for a hyperlink associated with the drawing1.xml generated for the Draw TextBox.
Working with Word 2016, a link added to the TextBox drawing1.xml, is recorded into the OOXML "drawings" subfolder "_rels" as drawing1.xml.rels
LO Calc then correctly reads the hyperlink Excel 2016 writes for the drawing object.
So, the OOXML/MS Calc 2007-2019 Export filter of a Draw TextBox in Calc does not seem to parse the hyperlink. And it is missing on round trip. Looks like Draw shapes do get the _rels handling , but not so the Draw TextBox.
