Description Antonio Gómez 2015-11-05 11:00:18 UTC
I insert a URL in a cell. When I try to change it and add something different always appended to the end of the text and I have to delete all URL and recreate it again. For example, if I write "http://www.google.es" and I want to modify it and I put "http://www.google2.es" the software makes me "http://www.google.es2"

I can confirm with LO win7, Version (Build ID: 7545bee9c2a0782548772a21bc84a9dcc583b89) and Version:
Build ID: 8bde421ccec9c10fe1382ad68485852889dd4c74

Editing hyperlink via icon works correct.

Part solution?: I have been told by "Which? Computing", which does not address all the anomalies, the following regarding Autocorrect Options (these I have changed as suggested by them):

The program tends to recognise text with dots as links, and automatically insert them as such, due to one of its settings. Although you can remove the hyperlink created with CTRL+Z, it will do it again the next time, as long as this setting is still active.

To deactivate it, please see these steps:

Load a document of the type for which you want to modify the URL recognition.
If you want to modify the URL recognition for text documents, open a text document.
Choose Tools - (AutoCorrect) - AutoCorrect Options.
In the AutoCorrect dialog, select the Options tab.
If you unmark URL Recognition, words will no longer be automatically replaced with hyperlinks.
In LibreOffice Writer there are two check boxes in front of URL Recognition. The box in the first column is for later post-editing and the box in the second column is for AutoCorrect as you type.
