Description Frank Winklmeier 2019-06-12 11:57:23 UTC
When using "Clear Direct Formatting" on selected text within a text box that contains a hyperlink, the hyperlink is lost even if the hyperlink was not part of the selection.

To reproduce:
- Open new Impress document
- Create a text box (F2)
- Enter some text, e.g. "My link to http://www.google.com"
- On hitting Return the URL should be auto-formatted to a hyperlink
- Select e.g. "My link"
- Click "Clear Direct Formatting" (Shift+Ctrl+M)

The auto-formatted hyperlink disappears even though it was not part of the selection. Note that other formats (e.g. if part of the non-selected text was bold) are maintained. So this bug is specific to hyperlinks.
