Quote from: GarryP on March 20, 2017, 10:43:35 AMA simple modal dialog can then pop up (possibly using the Qt WebEngine Widget) where the user can browse to the required page - or manually enter a URL - and then they OK the dialog which then closes.
QuoteOne issue that springs to mind is how the user can be shown that a hyperlink is allocated to a piece of text. In other words, what (if any) formatting could be automatically applied to the text without messing up the user formatting? I don't think Scribus should change the text formatting so would putting a box round the text be reasonable? (The preview mode would also need to change/remove whatever automatic formatting is applied to show the real formatting.)
Quote from: GarryP on March 20, 2017, 02:27:15 PMCould you explain what you mean by "unmarked" hyperlinks please? Do you mean URLs in the text that are not formatted as links...
QuoteI'm not sure if I like the idea of using automatically applied styles for hyperlinks. Unless Scribus creates the styles on the fly - creating a character style from the formatting of the text and keeping it updated - it would have to apply a default style which will probably not be formatted the same as the rest of the text. The user would then have to go in and change the style formatting to match the text.
QuoteAs for intersections of hyperlinked text, I would say that it might be easier for Scribus to just override anything that already exists.
