Description David 2013-03-22 06:08:25 UTC
In the attached document, I am unable to select the word  "test1"  (by itself)  nor for the word  "test2"  (by itself)  in order to change the formatting of either   (the font size, or color, for example).

"test1" resides within a textbox, and "test2" resides within a "note."

Marking this as "off-topic" as this here bug report talks about hyperlinks in text boxes and comments (see David's attachment 76892 [details]).
Clearing direct formatting in those removes the hyperlinks.

Reproduced for both text box and comment in OOo 3.3, so marking as inherited.

Still reproduced in:
