Description Stefan_Lange_KA@T-Online.de 2020-03-24 20:08:44 UTC
Jumps within a sheet document by internal hyperlinks are executed properly only in the case the addressed cell or cell area is located in the displayed area of the same sheet or a comparable area of an other sheet.
The adressed cell or cell area is marked - if need after a change to the other sheet.
If the addressed cell (area) is loacated outside the displayed or an comparable area LO Viewer marks the addressed cell (area) - if need after change to the other sheet. But this cannot be seen, because LO Viewer doesn't shift the displayed area to the adressed cell (area).
The behavior can be tested with the attached ods document. There are hyperlinks in both sheets in cells B1 and B2, in sheet "Tabelle1" also in column O ("wo?)" and in sheet "Tabelle2" in column S ("woher?").

A hard problem is that further jumps especially to targets in an other sheet (of the same document) often result in freeze of LO Viewer.

I can confirm with a current master build as of commit 7de7512718ac192fcad441d5500d056316f72d72.

* open attached file
* make sure that cell A35 is not displayed on the screen (e.g. zoom in if necessary)
* click on "-->Ende" in cell B2

-> cell A35 is highlighted, but you only become aware when scrolling there manually.

Successfully tested that it works now with the commit in place.
Comment 7 Stefan_Lange_KA@T-Online.de 2021-09-08 11:00:47 UTC
I think the problem isn't solved (completely):
In the build installed with android_2021-09-03_18.04.23_LibreOfficeViewer-strippedUIEditing-debug.apk (Build ID 889014c) jumps within one section (sheet) are executed correctly (in my small test document!) and also jumps from sheet "Tabelle1" to a target in the sheet "Tabelle2".
But jumps by a link from sheet "Tabelle2" to a target in the sheet "Tabelle1" do not work - nothing happens!

In the build installed with android_2021-09-07_13.44.18_LibreOfficeViewer-strippedUIEditing-debug.apk (Build ID a19e8dd) the behavior is again as described in the bug report, means without the fix!

I've tested this with the latest commit 16376cae68f4406ef9440bdcb7b9617de6a6f998 and can not confirm this problem. I've attached a document with "nSeite" at cell D1 to jump to next "Tabelle2" and "vSeite" to jump back to "Tabelle1".
