Hello back.

Wow, that's a *very* good start ...


I hold back ;-) Just tell whether when some feedback is more helpful. I
found some minor description issues, e.g. the tooltips appearance isn't
configurable, but the length of the description (but since LibO doesn't
ship the "offline" help package per default, this checkbox does nothing
as far as I know ... another issue, not related).

I just checked again and my description is correct: the "Help tips"
check box lets you completely turn off tooltips. (The "Extended"
option activates the long tooltips.)
And yes, I had the same idea about what the problem with non-appearing
extended tips could be already – which you just implicitly verified.

Sounds very good - but we may add those whiteboards and mark them
accordingly (to be honest: I also created some half-finished
descriptions, since developers were not interested anymore ... so I
moved to other topics as well).

Before we can do that we'd have to clarify what actually is an
official proposal from our side, I suppose. For now, when I feel more
confident in the content on the new Whiteboard page, I'll create a
link to it.

All information, requirements, ... are here:

Ah, I had seen that page before ... now I know where my inspiration
came from (besides André's mail about the grid lines). I'll link to
it, at least.

It's already a bit old, but maybe migrating some content (I can have a
look what authors contributed) may be worth the effort.

Authors are you, Mirek2 (who is in the LibO community) and one Jason
Baron (whom I don't know). Relicensing Jason Baron's work could be a
mess*. But the migration idea sounds sensible as we don't know for how
long the Ooo wiki is going to last. Some Ooo websites, such as EIS and
Gullfoss, are down already. Let's hope the bugzilla and the wiki
remain (both seem very valuable to me).

One last comment: We also have some additional options in the
configuration files. So if we decide to "kill" things, it might be
possible to move them "out of sight", or in the configuration files - if
required in rare cases.

Yes, additionally there should be an entry point to the configuration
files from the application (what I call the advanced options panel in
the wiki).

Best regards,
