           Summary: Impassible to globally style hyperlinks in Impress
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: LibO 3.4.2 RC2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: Presentation
        AssignedTo: libreoffice-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org

Usability guidelines say hyperlinks should be underlined to provide users with
a visual clue that text can be clicked on to navigate to another part of a
document or to another document.  This is of course important for digital
versions of documents (odp, pdf), less so (if not at all) for hardcopy

Unfortunately Impress does not underline hypertext links nor does it provide a
way to globally style text links.  The link color can be changed by using
LibreOffice's setting "Tools -> Options -> Appearence -> Unvisited / Visited
Links.  But there is no way to underline all links without manually changing
each one, a tedious task in the age of css and styles!

Writer provides a specific style for hypertext links, "Internet Link",
internally called "Internet_20_link".  Unfortunately, this text style is not
available in Impress.  I would like to see it added (actually Impress style
management should be brought up to the level of writer in general, but this is
the use case that most specifically impacts me).
