In Writer 3.3 beta3 "Clear formatting" (and "Default formatting" from menu Format) doesn't work.
may I suggest to fix this before 3.3.0 release?
In OOo 3.3 RC7 (m17) works well, so bug must be somewhere in LibO patches.
This is intentional and part of the fix for this OpenOffice.org issue:
might well happen again in the nearby future, that changes are reported as bug ;-)
So how can user remove links from content if "clear formatting" doesn't do that?
I don't mean "remove hyperlink" from context menu because this method is time consuming (if we have many links in text).
Hmm, applying Character style Default (to a selection) does not help.
I just see, that when I have a selection with more hyperlinks, click somewhere in the selection and chose: remove hyperlink, it works for all selected hyperlinks.
(Personally I would prefer two functions:
- Ctrl-M: remove all not style based-formatting
- Ctrl-Shft-M: remove all not paragraph-style based-formatting
[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.3.0 RC1 - WIN XP English UI [OOO330m17 (build 126.96.36.199)]", I see the intention, but it seems that some inconsistences are left, so that I reopen this bug until all aspects will have been discussed. At least HELP contents will have to be corrected, pls see
(may be we will have to open a second Bug for that)
In CALC "Default Formatting" still removes Hyperlinks
Should we not have a menu item in 'Edit' or 'Format' to remove Hyperlinks?
Here also. In the LibreOffice/BrOffice Writer the formatting of link isn´t clearing with paste button > only text nor right button mouse at remove link option, being need i change color for black and i remove underline. Only remove the "reference" of the link.
>In CALC "Default Formatting" still removes Hyperlinks
This problem concerns Impress/Draw too.
Can We expect unified behaviour for whole suite before 3.3 released?
Still broken in 3.3.4. Docs aren't changed either. Since this worked in OOO, and is very useful, I hope it will receive some higher priority.
I frequently cut and paste from Bugzilla into a document, and no I don't want to start using CSV instead.
reproducible with LO 188.8.131.52 (Win7 Home, 64bit)
Trying to make something of this bug. Wanted or unwanted behavior is the big question.
Help says: https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Clear_Direct_Formatting
There's already is the option to right-click any hyperlink and select "remove hyperlink".
After discussion in the QA IRC channel with Mechtilde and Michael Stahl we came to the conclusion that the current behavior is intentional and complaint to what the help article says.
So closing as NOTABUG.
there are basically 2 different opinions about hyperlinks in documents:
1) hyperlink is a content entity, like a field or a frame
2) hyperlink is formatting, like "bold"
depending on how you see hyperlinks you may get different opinions :)
more generally (and as described in OOo issue 47893) there is a definite
use case for a "Clear Formatting" feature that removes only
hard formatting, and leaves character styles, hyperlinks etc. alone.
this should be the most visible, easily accessible "Clear Formatting"
thing in the UI.
for hyperlinks in particular there is a "Remove Hyperlink" option
in the context menu to get rid of it, and Cor points out in
comment #8 that this actually works on a selection too.
but i'm not at all opposed to add a separate "Clear More Formatting"
or whatever menu entry that would remove things like character styles
and possibly hyperlinks and rubies (don't forget those :) too;
that would be a valid enhancement request.
but i'm re-opening this because it says that hyperlink removal
is "inconsistent" - and that is true, in Impress and Calc
the hyperlinks are converted to plain text but not in Writer;
i think that Impress and Calc should be changed to work like Writer.
please file a separate enhancement bug for the "Clear More Formatting"
if you like. and think of a better name :)
REOPENED is incorrect status for this one. Setting to NEW per comment 15 from Michael Stahl.
** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice
(5.1.6 or 5.2.3 https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave
a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa
Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Still the same in current master

Should do that, yes. (ping..)
I've the same opinion of Michael Stahl in comment 15.
For me, hyperlinks are no formatting, they are text elements like a list and no style like red text color (beside the fact, that links have a specific character style - but deleting them would make links in text unfindable). Therefore please do not remove links or default link for. If the behavior is anywhere different, please change that to make it work like in Writer.
As hyperlinks in Writer are automatically converted to use the 'Internet Link' character style, there is no way for 'Clear Direct Formatting' to work with it. I think this can be closed as wonfix or wfm as i doubt the behaviour can be unified between apps.
Closing the ticket once again (nice history, btw) as NOTABUG since it wasn't filed as enhancement request.
Following comment 15 the function "Remove Link" known in Writer should be introduced in Calc and Draw/Impress in order to convert links into ordinary text. Please file another ticket for this.

see bug 111707 and bug 102911
Now also Clear direct formatting in Calc and Impress should nót remove the Hyperlink?!
