Description Daniel Espinosa 2011-10-27 12:52:31 UTC
When a Table of Contents is created not hipperlink is added for each entry. When building a PDF is very useful to have this hipperlinks.

The editing dialog for Table of Contents helps you to add manually hiperlinks to selected Levels, but isn't intuitive on where you "PUT" begin of hipperlink mark and where to "PUT" the end, I think this is hard for people doesn't knowing anything about HTML like markup (<a></a>) (just as an example, because you must need to know where to locate the bigging and where the end). 

May is more easy if the GUT have quick button to add an imperlink to all entry's elements automatically, or even to all entries in the table's showed Levels.

General +1 for this. Hyperlinks by default would be more sensible.

However, the default character style for TOC hyperlinks should Not be "Internet Link". People understand that blue, underlined text links out to the internet, but it makes no sense for a TOC entry.

I'd propose a default character style called "Contents Link" (which would conveniently come in the Style manager alongside other Contents styles like Contents Heading etc) which would be completely plain, and users could edit if they like.

Reported (and fixed) as → Bug 44281 - [FORMATTING] [TOC] Character style of [LS] and [LE] marks should be 'Index Link'.

- Auto-generated tables of contents now contain hyperlinks to the relevant pages by default.
- LS (Hyperlink Start) has Character Style 'Index Link' by default.
