Hello malekpatryk, *,
I can confirm it with LO Version: Build-ID: 1c1366bba2ba2b554cd2ca4d87c06da81c05d24 (with installed Germanophone lang- as well as helppack), with Version: Build-ID: 6c3586f855673fa6a1576797f575b31ac6fa0ba3 (parallel installed, following the instructions from https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel with Germanophone lang- as well as helppack) and also with Version:
Build ID: 6d9d0393f54d6a20a5c5b11b038fb1cb9dcfe492 TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86@45-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2014-04-09_06:28:03 (installed with en_US lang- as well as helppack) under Debian Testing i686 ... :( A further test reveals, that the Germanophone version of AOO (AOO401m5(Build:9714)  -  Rev. 1524958 2013-09-20 11:41 - Linux i686) under Debian Testing i686 also has this bug ... :( I have no older version of AOO/OOo here to test it, sorry ... :( Maybe someone else is able to do this work ... ;)

In PowerPoint the link colors can only be set in themes, not individually:

Not sure how LO can properly support that, though if there's a single given color this should be possible.

Dear malekpatryk,

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 with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

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) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

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: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
