I have a document that lists image sources and corresponding links. This document will be both printed and digitized for distribution, which means those hyperlinks can't have a different name, all links must have the name identical to the actual link, needed for the printed version, so people can still see the actual source link.

The issue: all items are numbered and therefore all lines are tabbed, one tab to the right. Some of the hyperlinks are too long and won't allow being tabbed, so they remain nested in between the page boundaries left and right. I cannot find a work-around to have the hyperlink nested in between the tabs like all other text.

So from left to right the page looks like this (2 lines example):

(left page boundary of 2cm) -> item number (f.e. "1.5") -> TAB -> item text [break] (left page boundary of 2cm) -> TAB .................................-> source:[space]<hyperlink>

But because the hyperlink is too long it takes up two lines, and it automatically adds a break after 'source:[space]' and starts the next line at the page boundary. I can leave 'source:' on the line above, but I still cannot 'TAB' the hyperlink so that both its lines sit aligned with the 'item text' in the line above. I can TAB the hyperlink at the start of its second line but then it is no longer a working link because it literally breaks it up, because of the spaces added by the tab.

Should look like this :

(left page boundary of 2cm) -> item number (f.e. "1.5") -> TAB -> item text [break] (left page boundary of 2cm) -> TAB -> source:[space]<hyperlink................[break] (left="" page="" boundary="" of="" 2cm)="" -=""> TAB -> .................................................>

Can't find any way to do this, but I can remember from years ago with MsOffice this was never an issue... Only been using LibreOffice for a maybe I'm overlooking something. Any advice is much needed, I'm stuck with this.

I would upload a screen for illustration but can't see how to do that here...

here's a screen :

Ideally it would need to be sitting after 'source:' with a space in between, and the hyperlink indented to the right of the item number like all other text...

But even below 'source:' but indented like the other text would also be acceptable. This isn't though...

EDIT: nevermind, I found it.
