Description Pedro Neves 2015-02-26 14:41:30 UTC
In Writer or in Impress (those are the 2 components in which I've tested it, if you select some text and then insert an hyperlink, the "text" field on the insert hyperlink dialog is empty.

This happens with version (in Debian Linux and Kubuntu 14.10) and not with version

I can not confirm in Writer  with Version:

Can not reproduce either.

In a freaky case like this, you should try this: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/User_Profile#Resolving_corruption_in_the_user_profile

Change back to UNCONFIRMED, if the problem persists after deleting user profile. Change to RESOLVED INVALID, if the problem went away.

Comment 3 Pedro Neves 2015-03-14 10:37:08 UTC

I've tested it again on KaOS (with Libreoffice version and in Kubuntu 15.04 (beta 1) with LO versions and 

In both cases I was using a live image running from USB so I think both user profiles should be clean.

Steps to reproduce:

1 - open a new writer document
2 - write a word on the document
3 - select that word and insert an hyperlink (Ctrl+K)

A window shows up with the option to introduce a web link. The selected word is on the text field - this is as expected.
If one selects the option to insert a hyperlink to a document, the text field is blank (the selected word should still be in the text field). 
This behaviour also occurs if one chooses to insert a hyperlink to a Mail & News of to a New document.
