Have latest beta 2.0 (1.9.m122)- and followed Unruh's scenario for Hyperlink
insertion-save-reopen-Edit actions. There IS a definite "problem" with
Hyperlink editing in prior OOo versions and the beta.
Reviewed the bug repository and there are a few which relate to issues with
editing-moving hyperlinks in Impress. A sure defect is that the OOo
"Navigator" does not properly show the Hyperlink object either; which
results in it being not being a recognizable object for editing (with
associated properties, etc.). Definitely issues/defects here...
