Say you have your text bolded and green...hypothetical. Do this:

select text,

insert, link or use the Link icon on the HTML toolbar

in the insert link properties dialog box, insert the link's URL as you normally would (don't click ok yet)

at the bottom, under appearance, you should see Style...I am going to assume that you do not have any styles as of yet

click on Edit Styles

click on Add Hyperlink Style Sheet dialog box

click on Linked in the Add Hyperlink Style dialog box and change the color to the blue, leave the background as is, select Bold, and deselect Underline

click ok to close out of that box

repeat the last two steps for the remaining 3 link formats. When you are done, click ok to close out the Add Hyperlink Style dialog box

click ok to close out the Hyperlink Style Sheet

select the style that you just create from your style dropdown menu

click ok

PS: sometimes, when I go through all of this, my text still does not hyperlink, but the style is created. If you find yourself in the predicament, just following the steps up to where you get to create a style. Instead of doing this, just select the style you just created from the dropdown menu.

hope this helps
