How to add a hyper-link to an action button in Open Presentation?

share|improve this question

This is from Oracle's OpenOffice Help TNT blog:

  • Right-click the new push button and choose Control from the context menu. This opens one of the two main
    properties windows.
  • Right click the Action list button and select "Open document/web page"
    from the list.
  • The URL text field is now enabled. Click the […] button next to the URL
    text field to select the document
    that should be opened when a user
    clicks the button.

The last step here is applicable only if you want to link to a document. If you want to link to a web page, enter the url in the "URL" field, right below where you selected the action.

Now you've got to leave design mode (button in the form controls toolbar) for the button to work.

Were do I find new push buttons? Is there a way I could attach a hyper-link to basic shape or symbol shape buttons? – Agnese Nov 22 '10 at 18:49
