Hyperlinks

WA.TWORSX via AOL
AOO 4.1.5 on desktop WIN10-64.

I am trying to insert a hyperlink in Calc spreadsheet. I want to open up
a PDF/document file or to display an image file from my local hard drive
while working on a Calc spreadsheet file.

The Help file says to select Format->Character->Hyperlink tab; but
"Character" is greyed out.

What am I doing wrong?

Regards,

VinceB.

Not much.

o Format | Character... is greyed out if you select a cell or range
of cells. To enable it, you have to have the text (or part of it)
within the cell(s) selected. Click enough times for this to be the
case. But it has no Hyperlink tab.

o The functionality you require seems to have been moved since the
help text was written. You will find it at Insert | Hyperlink. Or you
can use the Hyperlink toolbar; see View | Toolbars > | Hyperlink bar.

I trust this helps.

Hi Brian:

Yes, I was successful in using the View | Toolbars> | Hyperlink bar.  TNX.
I have many Calc files in which I will want to add hyperlinks to locally
stored document files on C:/ drive, (or perhaps located on a CD-ROM or
USB thumb drive), if that is also possible.

I did not get anywhere with Format | Character, for unknown reason,
remains grayed out.  I am not clear on your instruction to enable it
(Character). Do you mean that I must already have a full URL within the
selected cell? For me, my fingers are challenged when typing, e.g., :
file:///C:/Users/username/Documents/My%20Bowling/League%20Bowling/2018-19%20FRI%20Senior%20League%20Roster.pdf.


When selecting As Button under the Hyperlink icon on the Hyperlink Bar,
at first attempt (yesterday) I was not getting any response by clicking
on the button; I saw controls for resizing an object image. But it is
now working as expected. :-)

Ciao!
VinceB.

Re: Hyperlinks

I am now having a new difficulty: deletion of a hyperlink button in Calc
cell.

I confess, this is a problem outside of AOO as well.  I simply do not
know how to delete (what I think is HTML for) an image object.

Help, please.

VinceB.
