Description Jan Kratochvil 2020-04-16 14:07:55 UTC
libreoffice-writer-6.3.5.2-5.fc31.x86_64

oowriter
1
shift-left
right-click on the highlighted text "1"
Character->Character...
HyperLink
URL
http://a.com
OK

Nothing happens, the text "1" has no underline, URL is ignored/lost.

If I make the text longer (such as "a1a" instead of "1") or maybe if I highlight it by mouse from left to right (and not by keyboard from right to left) it starts working.

It is not 100% reproducible but the reproducibility instructions above never disappointed me.

Jan, http://a.com doesn't seem to be a valid URL. Please add correct URL.
=> NEEDINFO
Comment 2 Jan Kratochvil 2020-04-19 06:50:58 UTC
Instead of http://a.com you can enter any other URL, I have tried now:
  https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=132150

The behavior is the same.
Comment 3 Jan Kratochvil 2020-04-19 06:59:55 UTC
Verified it is still broken also with:
  libreoffice-writer-6.4.1.2-1.fc33.x86_64
Comment 4 Dieter 2020-04-19 10:40:01 UTC
I've tried with

Version: 7.0.0.0.alpha0+ (x64)
Build-ID: 1c9ced04189c9d23ffea05d5570960b54b05ef28
CPU-Threads: 4; BS: Windows 10.0 Build 18363; UI-Render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win; 
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE); UI-Sprache: de-DE
Calc: CL

and http://www.example.com and couldn't reproduce it. Is it possible for you to insert hyperlink with Insert => Hyperlink?

Comment 8 Jan Kratochvil 2020-04-19 11:07:08 UTC
I see now it is unrelated to hyperlinks.
Just for short selected text right mouse button will deselect it before showing the context menu. So then with no text selected the Hyperlink does set it to no text - I will file another Bug for that.

I think this is a duplicate of: Bug 72266
