Description ffelder 2010-10-03 05:24:57 UTC
Hyperlinks between slides within an Impress presentation are broken when opening the document with an Impress installation using a different program interface language. Consequently, links also do not work after exporting to PDF.

Easy explanation: English interface sets 'Slide 2' as link reference, German interface expects 'Folie 2', and vice versa. 

Easy fix: Have all Impress installations set to the same interface language. ;)

Original document created using OOo 3.2.0 build 9483 on Ubuntu 10.04 (set to English), links are broken when opening in OOo for Windows and Ubuntu (both set to German).

Well, it's not the same... Radek, any idea?
Comment 3 Roman Eisele 2012-05-03 08:35:14 UTC
This is an Impress bug, therefore changed Component accordingly.
Comment 4 Julien Nabet 2012-08-06 08:59:49 UTC
ffelder: do you still reproduce this bug with last LO version (3.5.5) ?
If yes, could you attach a brand new Impress file created with LO set to German so we can easily try to reproduce the problem ?
Comment 5 Alexander Karner 2012-09-25 13:12:33 UTC
I see the same behaviour in the latest level of LibreOffice (Version (Build ID: e29a214)

It doesn't even matter if I rename the foil to a specific name.

I'll attach a file for this.
The Group Object on slide 3 should link to slide 20. 
It works while the file is open but fails after I cloese and reopen the file.

Created attachment 67683 [details]
Presentation that demonstrates the behaviour. Please see my comment

Groupobject 23 on slide 3 should link to slide 20. This is corrupted after I close and reopen the file. I have to fix manually
Comment 7 Julien Nabet 2012-10-06 06:16:20 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated yesterday, I reproduced the problem.

Radek: one for you?

Comment 10 tommy27 2014-08-01 05:04:09 UTC
are you still reproducing this with current 4.2.x or 4.3.x releases?
I tried it on Windows and it seems it's working. maybe a Linux specific issue?
Comment 11 Julien Nabet 2014-08-09 12:46:32 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with 4.2.6 LO Debian package, I don't reproduce this.
I put it as WFM.

If someone still reproduces this, don't hesitate to reopen this tracker.

(however, links in exported pdf don't work since they link to local directory where the file is instead of a expected slide)
