Yes I copied the extended tips from the Help to the dialogs for 7.1 (the
<ahelp> tags in Help when applied to dialogs only).

The "?" button in dialogs is not working (it may depend on the windows
manager of the operating system).

Hi Felipe,

Olivier has done a lot of work with the extended tips through
Bug 118148. You can now view some extended tips if you enable the
configuration option and know where to hover your mouse pointer. (There
are clues in the Bug about where to hover!)

As for the "What's This" facility, I'm not sure of its status; I have
not witnessed it doing anything useful. Maybe Olivier can comment?

I would certainly remove the note about the extended tips not being
fully functional.

Hello Team,

In the Calc Guide 7.0 Preface, there is a note on page 5, saying:

*The What’s This? facility and extended tips are being improved but in
LibreOffice 7.0 this work is incomplete and so they are not fully

And the LibreOffice 7.1 Community: Release Notes report this feature:

*Reactivated extended tips in dialogs*

It's safe to say that the work is done and the mentioned Note can be

Hi Felipe,

I hope that you are well.

Regarding a 7.1 Calc Guide, great news that you are starting on it. Let
me know how I can assist you.

I have recently created a folder structure in NextCloud and drafted a
major upgrade to Chapter 13 (Calc as a Database) to remove the macros
and (hopefully) improve the description of the 12 Database functions.
This was discussed at various Documentation Team meetings.
