Under "Comparing Versions of a Document", LibreOffice help instructs to choose "Edit - Compare Document". There is no such menu item; the "Compare Document" is in fact under "Edit - Track Changes - Compare Document".
This may not sound like much but as it was the first time I was using this feature, it took me quite a while to figure out that the help was wrong.
Please correct help documentation (and translations of course).
Help should indicate correct information, see above.

tdf#105070 'Compare Document' menu item has moved
Thanks for the detailed report, it really helped to fix this problem quickly.
This is not fixed in the web site help, which is what I get if I choose Help > LibreOffice Help. https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Comparing_Versions_of_a_Document still says to choose Edit - Compare Document. From the page's version history it doesn't look like this fix has been made yet.
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/Wikihelp describes a plan to create wiki pages from git, but doesn't explain how it currently works.

I'm guessing it's because the commit targets 5.4, which is not out yet. So let's keep it closed until 5.4 happens.
