Libre will sometimes automatically format an email addy as a hyperlink. Sometimes it does not. Trying to do a document, and this needs to be corrected before the doc is complete. Thanks for any help.

If you type an email address (address@domain), it should automatically be converted into a hyperlink for mail (when autocorrect is set to recognize URLs). I guess that either your emails are not recognized, and/or you want hyperlinks for texts that aren't properly formatted as mail addresses. No problem: select the text that you want to be the hyperlink for mail. Click Insert > Hyperlink (or press ctrl-K on Windows). In the Hyperlink dialog window, select the second category Mail. You can now provide the mail address under Recipient, and if you wish, pre-define the subject of the mail under Subject.
