If I want to create a hyperlink in my Editor document, I press Ctrl-K to open up the Hyperlink dialog window. There are 2 fields under Hyperlink Type: URL and Text. If I paste my URL into the URL field everything appears fine. If I leave the dialog window open and go back to the Writer text and select the text I want to copy and paste into the TEXT field , as soon as I select the text, it will clear the URL field in the Hyperlink dialog. Now if I go back and select the URL in the Writer document, it clears the TEXT field I just pasted in.
The only way to paste the information in, is to copy the Text before opening the Hyperlink dialog and paste it in. Then close the dialog and go back to Writer and select the URL and copy that, then press Ctrl+K to reopen the Hyperlink editor and paste it into the URL field.
This looks like a bug
