Hi Yifan,

Thanks for reporting. I can reproduce this behavior using Linux Mint 14 x64 with LibreOffice Versie .2.2 (Bouw-id: 4c82dcdd6efcd48b1d8bba66bfe1989deee49c3); Dutch UI; and Libreoffice Version: Build ID: 7b515a57eb6a644860715018656ac0b843b62ba (build today).

Therefore I mark this as NEW.

@Yifan: I think you have also a non-master version installed on your system which you can reproduce this behavior? The bug report should always be reported against the oldest reproducible version (in this case it could be inherit from AOo off course). Therefore I mark this bug as a bug of LibreOffice for now. Feel free to decrease that number if you still can reproduce this behavior using an earlier version.

*Medium: does prevent you to make high quality work
*High: a bit higher then default value medium.

Kind regards,

This bug cost me a month of my sad and miserable life.
I used docx files for my resumes (cv). Have been sending these files for a month, responding to really a lot of vacancies... And not a single reply! I already thought I am so very bad nobody wants me. Untill today, when I accidentally found out there's no bloody hyperlinks! 
I am very, very upset. And angry. It's almost 4 in the morning and I swear I will follow this bug report, watching the status every day, untill I see nobody else loses month of their life because of this little nasty insect.
