Hyperlinks do not seem to work in RTF at all.
Steps to Reproduce:
(1) Create *.jrxml file that has a single text field with a hyperlink (e.g., use the attached file).
(2) Fill and export the report to RTF format.
* The RTF file will contain a single text field with a hyperlink.
* The RTF file will contain a single text field but there is no hyperlink.
As a customer using Jasper Reports we are repeatedly bitten by this issue. Out of all the issues with the RTF exporter this one is the most severe.
For example, we use Jasper Reports to create one main report with hundreds of smaller detailed reports. We structure the product so that each detailed report is accessible through a hyperlink in the main report. This way we do not have one long report that is ten thousand pages. When the main report is RTF format, the user has difficulty navigating into more detail because they cannot use hyperlinks and cannot quickly locate the detailed report file.
