      Description

      Pentaho Product: Report Designer
      Version: 5.4.0
      Operating System: Windows 7
      Repository Database: Postgresql
      Database for Data: N/A

      Please can functionality be added to display html links within a report designer element (e.g. a label field), so that when the report is rendered as html or pdf, the links are clickable.

      In the attached report, the label element in the report header has an html link added. This displays as normal clickable link, but when the report is viewed as pdf or html it is not active.

      Currently, we can make the whole element a link using Format > Hyperlink, but you would need to split up text into multiple elements to achieve the required result. This is a rather awkward workaround and is demonstrated in the report footer of the attached report.
