Hi operacreamcake

The reason for that, normally, is because the Hyperlink is broken. LO/OO Hyperlinks are prone to such link breakage, and there is no simple method to find nor to bulk-fix those broken-links. Damn frustrating.

A simple check:

  1. Place the cursor in the middle of the hyperlink
  2. (menu):EditHyperlink (Ctrl+K)
  3. click on search button (in this case for a Heading, and therefore for a Target in Document)
    (in the image below, note that the target for the link--"5.7.13.article..."--has been found & is therefore highlighted at the top of the right-hand side window)
    (if it cannot be found, then nothing will be highlighted)
    image description

In this particular case, the Hyperlink is NOT broken; therefore, Ctrl+Click works & jumps to the target of the link.

If the Hyperlink is broken it can be fixed by entering a valid link. That is your only current option. If you have 100 identical broken links, you will need to repeat for each of the other 99 broken Hyperlinks. Nice.

If this helps then please tick the answer (✔)
...and/or show you like it with an uptick ()
