Feature request #10731
html formatted text boxes do not create links in pdf outputs
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:|

Not sure if this is a feature request or a bug,
if I create a text box in a composer and add a tag
when outputting to PDF the link text is formatted as expected (blue, underlined), but the link does not work (maybe it does not exist as it is not clickable).
It does not depend on the platform (tested Linux and Windows) and also does not depend on how the PDF is created (the QGIS function or other virtual printer).

it seems there was a bug in QT 4.7 , solved in 4.8.. I guess we just have to wire that feature:

I doubt this is a bug fixed in Qt 4.7. The link in the previous comment points to post about wicked, not Qt and QGIS uses Qt to render PDFs.
This bug has been fixed in Qt5.6:
Therefore we'll have to wait for the port to Qt5 to be done and we'll be able to close this issue.
