Default Changing color of hyperlink in paragraph text

Someone on the coreldraw.com forum asked if there was a way to change the color of a hyperlink in paragraph text. It always defaults to the standard blue text with underline. If you try to change the text color in the normal way, you loose the hyperlink. Is there a way to change the color with VBA?

Default link color

I can't find anything.
A crazy work around would be to have a duplicate text on top, while the active linked text is underneath.
I did find some settings in the registry regarding HTML export and links. Just go to Corel 15 and search link. I didn't test any of these though.

Default HyperLink

Agreed I believe this is hard coded, I do not know of a way to change it.

Thumbs up

1. Remove the LINK in your text and leave the text without any hyperlink. Change the color of the text that you will use as a link (if you wish to use other color)

2. Create a transparent square shape, right click it, properties and create the link (use the cross-hatch, it is better) - Put the shape in front of the text.

3. Export the PDF, voil√°! (on export pdf, dont forget to enable the hyperlink option)

why do you guys complicate so much?
