Absolutely not so. It was there. I complained about it when it disappeared,
which was sometime after 2011.

I have tried this. I have failed to make the "Insert hyperlink" command
appear in the RMB menu.

Sorry to have bothered you. Thanks for your help re. the Context menus tab,
the amusing revision of history, and the pointer to the Get Help page,
which does not actually lead to help but which does explain much about the
LibreOffice organization.
