Problem description: 

When I insert a hyperlink on a graphical object, the link is saved as an absolute link, not a relative link. 

In contrast, when I insert a hyperlink on a text, then the link is saved as a relative link.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Draw
2. Draw a graphical object, e.g. a rectancle
3. Select the object - Insert - Hyperlink - Document, let's say a PDF file
4. Write some text
5. Select the text - Insert - Hyperlink - Document, to the same PDF file as above
6. Save the Draw document to the same directory as the PDF file and close Draw
7. Move the Draw document and the PDF file to a different directory
8. Open the Draw document
9. Check the Hyperlinks on both the text and the graphical object => the Hyperlink on text has changed to the current directory, but the Hyperlink on the graphical object still points to the old directory

Current behavior:
see above

Expected behavior:
I would expect Draw to save all hyperlinks as relative links.
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

   *Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.1 or later)

   *If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
   *If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

   *Update the version field
   *Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
   *Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 

1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug 
3. Leave a comment with your results. 
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa
