Description Cao, Chen 2009-01-15 03:33:48 EST
Description of problem:
OOo failed to redirect to files or URLs, as being set to redirect.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
OpenOffice.org 3.0.0-9-10.fc10

How reproducible:
100% reproducible on my machine.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a OOo document by 
'Launch OOo, File -> new -> Text Document'.
2. set OOo to redirect to some site, for example 'http://www.google.com', by 
    1) 'File -> Properties... ', and 
    2) choose the tab 'Internet'.
    3) choose 'Redirect from this document'.
    4) after '5' seconds, 
       to URL : 'http://www.google.com' (or whatever site or file you like),
       to frame: '_blank' (or whatever value you like to select)
    5) click 'OK'.
3. save the file and reopen the file.

Actual results:
after about half an hour, nothing happened.

Expected results:
OOo opens the site set in 'to URL' in a window of the web browser.

Lets see if there's anything we can do about this
Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2009-01-15 11:22:03 EST
The code is set to only do a redirect if the document is read-only

OOo does work if the file is read-only.

and this is just not mentioned in the help document.
