Description yoddle 2020-01-17 14:12:37 UTC
Add any hyperlink to a text component in .ODT (hotkey: ctrl+K) will correctly make text blue and underline it.

Once converting to .DOC (via save as..), closing the document, and reopening it as the .DOC file, loses the hyperlink color and underline.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. CTRL+K add hyperlink to text in .ODT file
2. save as.. .DOC
3. close document
4. open .DOC document

Actual Results:
no underline nor blue color for hyperlink

Expected Results:
underline and blue color

Reproducible: Always

Bugged file

This is extremely weird, I couldn't reproduce it easily..

I removed the most data I could but for some reason changing some of the text might cause the bug to disappear and the text to be formatted correctly. I really have no clue whats going on.

Either way, try to save the file I attached as .DOC, close the file, then open the .DOC file created and the bug appears.

Regression, but sadly not bibisectable as it appeared between 3.3.0 and 3.5.0

Also true when exporting this document to DOCX.

In DOCX, direct formatting overrides the Internet Link character style.
<w:rStyle w:val="InternetLink"/>
<w:color w:val="000000"/>
<w:u w:val="none"/>

So, this must be a difference in implementation, where LO allows Internet Formatting to override direct formatting.

130056_hyperlink.odt: made from scratch example.

a.) Insert a hyperlink
b.) Apply some direct formatting. An "Internet Link" character style by itself IS overridden, but not (usually) when it is controlled by a hyperlink.
