Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-02-12 00:40:54 UTC
Created attachment 56908 [details]
Sample Document.

Steps to reproduce with "LibreOffice 3.4.5 German UI [Build ID: OOO340m1 (Build:502)]" parallel Server installation on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit).

1. open a WRITER document with misspelled words containing a hyperlink, for 
   example attached sample.odt
2. Run spell check with <f7>
   Expected: spell check should indicate misspelled words and allow correction
   Actual: only misspelled words without hyperlink will be recognized and can be

Also auto spell check has problems. When you add a hyperlink to a misspelled word the red wavy underline remains, but when you close / reopen the document the misspelled words will no longer be indicated.

I use LT Language Tool extension, but I think the problem also will appear with the default spell check.

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice Portable 3.3.0  - WIN7  Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO330m19 (Build:6) tag libreoffice-]", seems inherited from OOo.

There is also another problem, sometimes after doing spell checker, the hyperlinks are removed from whole word but stays on a leeter for example.
