Screenshot of the dialog in recent master

After the FTP type hyperlink support was removed from the Hyperlink dialog in bug 146386, there is now a single Web radio button, which makes no sense to have.

1. In Writer go to Insert - Hyperlink
-> dialog has a single Protocol: Web radio button

This can be removed at this point, and whatever settings/behaviors depended on it under the hood just made default.
The "Hyperlink Type" heading also could be renamed to "Hyperlink Settings" to make more sense.

Comment 1 Julien Nabet 2023-11-25 09:00:53 UTC
I gave a try here:

As indicated in commit message, I also removed "Protocol:" since it's also useless now.

I wonder if the blank space at the middle is useful.
