Cross-References Hidden in Exported PDF

Problem description: 

The cross-references inserted and shown in the ODT document exist in the corresponding exported PDF document, but are not shown: the reader cannot see that there is a link behind a group of words within the PDF document.

Cf. attched pictures.

Hi action,
The repro steps and attached screenshots look good, but I can't repro your results without an example ODT. Could you please attach one to this bug report?

Thanks,
--R

I have a guess:
since one of the last versions, LO does not honour the stacking of frames, a frame with text as content - like here - will always be set to top - and covers up everything below - incl. Text with Links - OP should send original ODT for test

I don't understand your guess. Is there a workaround and how can we implement it?
Comment 5 tommy27 2014-12-14 19:45:44 UTC
please upload source ODT file and let us retest with 4.3.4.1
Comment 6 actionmystique 2014-12-15 10:06:32 UTC
- LO Windows 4.3.4.1: same limitation
- Lo Linux 4.3.4.1: same limitation

How difficult is it to reproduce the issue with a 2 words file, one of them being a heading and the other one the cross-reference and exporting it as PDF?
Comment 7 tommy27 2014-12-15 13:56:40 UTC
if you wanna speed up QA you should better uplaod such a test file.
we have a lot of UNCONFIRMED bugs to process, so please take your time uploading a test file.

sample odt and pdf

The attached documents are an exported pdf and the original odt.  Viewing the pdf in Sumatra PDF does not show any shading or visual clue except a bookmark for the heading.  I don't know if LO's export function has always been doing this.  I've looked for, and couldn't find, a setting in Sumatra to see if it is something that can be turned on or off.  I don't know how other pdf viewers handle the pdfs from LO.

Version: 4.4.1.2

Comment 9 actionmystique 2015-03-31 16:16:13 UTC
Now it is confirmed and you have an odt.

> Now it is confirmed and you have an odt.

Was your original report about:
1) the link doesn't have a background color

or

2) the link is not clickable

Because the link in the pdf in attachment 114501 [details] is clickable (+ mouse pointer turns to hand) in Sumatra PDF on Win 7 and Evince on Ubuntu.

Set to NEEDINFO.
Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the information.
Comment 11 actionmystique 2015-04-09 09:53:01 UTC
the link doesn't have a background color nor is underlined.
Comment 12 Buovjaga 2015-04-09 12:21:14 UTC
Thanks. I'll actually set this to enhancement and adjust title a bit.
