2016-10-23 20:30:58 +0100 asked a question problem with open action when converting to pdf

I need to send a pdf to a group which requires all documents be scanned by VirusTotal. My results from this scan come back as

This PDF file contains an open action to be performed when the document is viewed. Malicious PDF documents with JavaScript very often use open actions to launch the JavaScript without user interaction.

This isn't acceptable but I don't know what to do about it to get an "all clear." I created the original file, so I know the links are clean and that no malicious code has been added. Is there a way I can change the open action of LO so that I don't get this warning?

Er, it should read, "That was a typo on my part."

Yes, that was a type on my part. My version is 5.1.4.2, sorry! I started a new document and so far so good. I will wait until the very last to add the hyperlinks.

I notice when non-printing characters is engaged, the paragraph mars following a hyperlink carry the same formatting as a hyperlink. I'm not sure if it's related, but it must have something to do with the L.O. metadata. A quirk perhaps. It seems to help not to hit "enter" immediately after a hyperlink.

Thank you for taking the time to reply. My version is 5.4.1.2. I had been looking for "properties," and didn't think to look under tools, so I appreciate that. The default in application colors is set to black. I haven't touched my user profile. I'm somehow thinking I started having problems after I hyperlinked some of the text. I'll go take a look at bugzilla and see if anyone else has had this problem

I've upgraded from Ubuntu 12.04 to 16.04 and am getting a bit frustrated with LO5. I have styles set to default style, automatic text color and no decorations. When selecting custom paragraph styles, the text is changed to blue with underline. It looks like the text is one big link, but it is not. If I highlight the text, right click, and select "clear direct formatting," nothing changes. Then I go to "modify" the style but it is set up as I want it: auto color and no underline. The only solution is to manually change color and eliminate underlining. I don't appreciate all the extra work. I didn't have this problem with previous versions of LO and need to know how to correct the problem.

EDIT - It's not just doing this with custom styles, but with preset styles as well.
