Using the hyperlink bar, it is impossible create a hyperlink by copy and paste. One is forced to type manually the text and the related URL. If one attempts to do a copy and paste into either field the contents revert to the previous hyperlink as soon as you reposition the cursor to location you want to place the hyperlink. Typing a very long URL is error prone and time consuming
I'm trying to do the copy and paste using texts and URLs that are already in the document I'm editing.
in an attempt to hide the URLs
NOT reproducible with "LibreOffice 3.3.1 – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO330m19 (build 8 / tag 18.104.22.168)]". I create hyperlinks by copy / paste dozens of times a day, this is an user error.
Please feel free to reopen this Bug if you find out that the problem still exists in the latest release of LibO, if you are really sure that it's a real bug and not only some faulty operation and if you can provide requested additional information.
