Using LO6.4.7.2 on UbuntuStudio 20.04 LTS     (same in LO in W10)

I'm preparing a contents list for a document where lots of clickable links are required to sections 
within the document and this has reminded me of previous poor experiences.

In the hyperlink dialogue box, your first selection has to be made in the left hand column where I 
select 'document' (rather than Internet, mail, ...). The next selection has to be the target within 
the document and to make the choice, you have to move the mouse right across the dialogue box to 
click on another icon at the extreme right hand side.

That's the first annoying bit. If you're only making one link, it's a very minor effort but if you 
have loads to make, it becomes a chore which aggravates a hand already damaged by years of computer 

A click on that target icon opens another target dialogue where a selection has to be made, in my 
case 'bookmarks' which opens a dropdown list requiring a scroll down because I'm in the mid 20's of 
bookmarks at the moment. The bookmark is selected and the 'apply' button is clicked and then the 

For the next link, all this has to be repeated.

It would be nice if a click on the 'document' selection in the hyperlink dialogue box could 
directly open the target dialogue. If that is not possible, then a second best would be to place 
the target icon over on the left hand side of the hyperlink dialogue, right next to the 'document' 

It would also be good, too, if the target dialogue would remember your last choice and reopen with 
'bookmarks' already dropped down and even scrolled to where you last left it.

Any thoughts?
