Description Sean Carlos 2011-05-01 22:33:53 UTC
If I export a presentation to pdf and I include notes pages, external links are
broken.  Instead of http://www.externalsite.com/ they become local references
to the directory containing the pdf, e.g. file://home/user/pdflocation.  There is
an export option under the links tab, Export links relative to file system, but
I am not using that.

The problem has been fixed in OpenOffice cws[impress212].

I should add that this bug involves data loss in the exported file, although the native file is not impacted.

One for thorsten?
Comment 3 Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2012-02-07 07:13:54 UTC
the fix from impress212 is in 3.5 already.

surprisingly this also works for me in LO 3.4.3 release
and current libreoffice-3-4, which don't include the impress212 fix
(while OOo 3.4 beta is broken).

perhaps something else managed to fix this?

please re-open if it's still broken for you in current 3.4 release.
