Test file for reproducing the bug

Issue in short:
in some documents I am unable to remove underlining for hyperlinks and change font color without extra steps to avoid the bug.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the attached file.
2. Select "Gentoo" word and try to remove underlining - WORKS.
3. Change color to black - DOES NOT WORK. Instead of making the word black, it makes it blue and underlined again.
4. Make the same text italic - now it works as expected.
5. Hit Ctrl+I again and you can see that it is only now what I was supposed to get in step 3.

Reproduced with LibO 4.1.2.3 on Win7

Deals with direct formatting :
- select the whole line, Ctrl-m to remove direct styles : after that, it works
- Writer seems confused by the multiple formats applied to the word "Gentoo" : the format of the underlying paragraph component, the character formats attached to the status of "hyperlink entry" and the formats (color, underline, etc) that the user try to apply to the word.

Bug.

Shouldn't this be marked as confirmed by now?

Still present on version 4.4.2.2 on ArchLinux
Comment 7 Kumāra 2016-04-29 03:33:59 UTC
Still (annoyingly) present in 5.1.1.3. (Much thanks to Ernestas for reporting and for showing a workaround.)

For most people who likely wouldn't even think there's a workaround, it's a major accessibility issue when you need to use a dark background.
