I'm trying to use the href html attribute in a map composer under Qgis 3.4.4-Madeira.
The issue: When using code [1] and exporting my map as .pdf, the text is colorized in blue but impossible to click on it.
When I change to code to [2], with the complete url as a "text", then it works. I provide an output showing this issue.
I don't know it has already been reported and/or still exists in more recent versions.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

They are both not clickable to me.

I'm sorry but think this is a won't fix because of how the underlying libraries (QT) export data to PDF.

There is some ongoing work to support geopdf output but I don't know if that will be a game changer for this particular issue.
