Description snowshed1 2012-03-05 16:14:53 UTC
LibreOffice 3.5.0rc3 
Build ID: 7e68ba2-a744ebf-1f241b7-c506db1-7d53735

Firefox 10.0.2

OS X 10.6.8

If you are a user of the Spaces feature on a Mac, when you follow the steps below, please make sure the new writer document and your browser are in the same space.  If the document and the browser are in different spaces, the bug is apparently not reproducible.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Open a new document in Writer.
2) Enter X number of blank lines using the Return key.
3) Insert a hyperlink in one of the blank lines.
4) Click on the hyperlink, causing the link to open in your browser.
5) Return to the Writer document by clicking on a blank line in the document.
6) The hyperlink in the document is moved to the blank line you clicked.

If you have a page of text, a table, apparently anything, the hyperlink will be moved to the spot where you click in the document.

Please feel free to ask for clarification, and if you would like me to try specific steps.

[Reproducible] with LO 3.5.2 on OSX 10.7.3
Comment 2 Roman Eisele 2012-08-31 14:26:03 UTC
REPRODUCIBLE with LibreOffice (Build ID: e29a214), German langpack installed, on Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Intel). Following the steps given by the reporter gives exactly the same result. (Not using Spaces.)

And already
REPRODUCIBLE with LibreOffice 3.3.0 on the same machine.

-> Adapting Version information (NB: the version field should always contain the number of the 1st version in which a bug is reproducible, not the last one!).
