In Impress and Draw the hyperlink color comes from [1] which is an "Application Color" that depends on the color scheme you chose.

[1] https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/UI.xcu?r=0aa61812&mo=17649&fi=483#478

In Writer it comes from the "Internet Link" style, hardcoded as COL_BLUE here:


The main problem is that a Writer style / template is not sensitive to the UI color scheme. So I wouldn't know how to proceed here because we cannot simply change the template.

Dark links not readable

I set to New, because this is a problem that makes content unreadable.
