Hyperlinks in OOo docs


When I create a document in OpenOffice and have a URL in it OO always wants to set it up as a hyperlink. In MS Word, if you right click the URL and choose 'remove hyperlink' it changes to a straight text URL. Is there an option such as this in OO? When I print a doc I don't want the URL to come out blue and underlined (which is what I assume will happen). Thanks.

Hi.

I don't think there's an easier way to do this, but if you highlight the link text and right-click on it, you can change the character attributes from the 'Character...' dialogue. There's also a 'Hyperlink' tab in the Character dialogue, but I can't see a way to change the style to 'normal'.

I unselect that feature in AutoCorrect/AutoFormat...
[ ] [ ] URL Recognition

That way, it's not a hyperlink until I make it one.
Actually, I uncheck most everything in AutoCorrect as I don't like writing programs telling me how the text should look.

That was it, thanks. Found all sorts of goodies in there that I can adjust.

http://download.openoffice.org/1.1.4...ity_patch.html

here is a security patch for OpenOffice-1.1.4 it is fairly simple to apply for Linux, there is a single file you need to replace libsot645li.so

i simply deleted the origional one in /usr/local/OpenOffice1.1.4/program then copied the new one in to the same directory...

depending on where you got your copy of OpenOffice could determine if you need to download and apply this patch, if your distro supplied your copy of OpenOffice you may have already got it from an update by your distro's update tool, it may be a good idea to determine if you need it or not...
