Re[2]: [libreoffice-documentation] Extended tips and the "What's This?" menu option


Thanks Olivier,

Have you any opinion on a likely time-scale for fixing the problem? Is this something that the developers are actively working on?

Regards,

Steve

The extended tips are not solved yet in the Help for LibreOffice.

It may be removed in the Guide, but it will return when we fix the issue.

Good morning Olivier,

Before I joined the project, I understand that these options did
something useful. (I can't define exactly what or when!)

As reported in bug 120538, they have not worked for some time, since
the
Help system was upgraded.

In Calc, the Help > What's This? option on the Menu bar appears to be
available (not greyed out) but doesn't appear to do anything. Similarly
the Tools > Options > LibreOffice > General > Help > Extended tips
option isn't greyed out but doesn't appear to do anything.

In the latest Calc Guide, the text implies that these options will do
something useful. The 6.0 Writer Guide gives the same impression and I
haven't checked others. I am uncomfortable ignoring the fact that these
options don't anything and running the risk of confusing readers.

Do we have an agreement about how cases like this should be
addressed in
the guides?

Regards,

Steve
