I'm using libreoffice to compose HTML documents. I have some other HTML files in the current directory that I have made. I've setup links in my index.html file.

Everything seems to be working at this point. The problem comes when I try to edit one of my html files that has relative links in it. Upon opening the file Libreoffice changes links like "./abc.html" to "file:///home//Desktop/abc.html".

Is there a setting somewhere that will keep Libreoffice from changing my links?

Version: Version (Build ID: 360m1(Build:2))

Running on Ubuntu 12.10

Thanks for the response Jean. I have played with every permutation and combination I can think of with those settings and for some reason, when I go to edit a link the changed version is in the box. I'm beginning to wonder if this is a bug.
