harassing underlining!

Paolo Alberto Rismondo
Hi,

I use Windows 7 etc. (my question has nothing to do, I believe, with
operating system etc.)

I wrote a paper with a lot of links to another document(s), done with
'Insert-Hiperlink' etc. (pointing to 'Document', of course, not to
'Internet', 'Mail & News') etc..

All text linked is underlined, however, while I find it rather ugly
(since there are a lot of them, as I said).

Is there any way to eliminate these annoying underlining?

Any suggestion will be appreciated, best regards,

Paolo

Re{Re}: harassing underlining!

Paolo Alberto Rismondo
Hi,

Many thaks for your quick answers. Some observation about them:

 1. The document is for 'strictly personal' use; it is a list of other
    documents etc. (so that the first document is a sort of index to
    many other ones).
 2. I don't need to known that they are links; in fact each line is a
    different link, so that underlining becomes annoying instead of useful.
 3. I tried to control underlining with character formatting (Ctrl+T),
    but with mixed results: sometimes it works, sometimes (I would not
    say 'most of the times') don't.

Unfortunately, it seems that no one of the suggested solutions are
working; control 'Tools | Options... | OpenOffice | Appearance | Custom
colours | General | Unvisited links and ... | Visited links.' refers to
the whole characters affected by the link, not to the underlining.

Many thank again for your kind attention,


all best,

Paolo

It's worth saying that any user of the document will need to recognise
your hyperlinks, and having them in blue and underlined is standard, so
will be easily understood. Hyperlinks without underlining may not be
spotted.

You can remove underlining from hyperlinks in the normal way - simply by
selecting the text and applying local formatting, using the formatting
buttons in the Formatting toolbar or Format | Character... | Font
Effects. The text colour of hyperlinks can be controlled at Tools |
Options... | OpenOffice | Appearance | Custom colours | General |
Unvisited links and ... | Visited links. If these options are not
ticked, the colour is controlled by local formatting, as for any other
text.

I trust this helps.

Click Format > Character > Hyperlink
Under Character styles for Visited and Unvisisted,
edit your choice.

Hmm however, if the links are the only thing
underlined in your document, CTL + A to select
all,  remove underline. That worked for me
in my document.

Just change the color to black for visited and unvisited links.
Then create a paragraph format where you set the Underlining in Font Effects to (Without) or the Underline color to white.
