screen for menu

The DATA menu in SCALC is a lot different from what we can see looking at both local and online helps.

As a result of the change to the help structure, the bug is no longer contextual.
I believe we can eliminate it.
Comment 4 Rafael Lima 2021-09-02 19:34:58 UTC
As an update to this bug, I checked the Data menu in LO Calc 7.2 and compared against the help page:


There are a few things to consider:
- "Filters" is actually named "More Filters" in the menu
- "Live Data Stream" is actually named "Streams" in the menu
- Data Provider for Spreadsheets is listed in the page but is not in the menu (should we add it to the menu? or remove it from the help page?)

The only issue here is the "Data Provider" feature which I could not find in any of the menus. However, this feature is accessible through the Tabbed interface in the "Data" tab.
Comment 5 Rafael Lima 2021-10-01 22:47:15 UTC
Just for the record, the "Data provider" feature was removed from the menu after this patch:

Hence, I'll remove it from the menu documentation as well.

BTW, this command still needs to be removed from the Tabbed interface, which will be done in a separate patch.
