Right now I have to press ctrl and click the link to open it.
The behaviour you experienced is made default because it reduces the risk of inadvertently activating a link. Links can trigger malign actions.
You cannot change this for any single link. If you consciously made the decision to take the risk you can change the setting under
‘Tools’>‘Options’>‘LibreOffice’>‘Security’>‘Security Options and Warnings’>‘Security Options’ third item
concerning every link then.
I would prefer to not change the default.
Thank you. As I work documents created by myself mostly this is good for me.
