Description Gabor Kelemen (allotropia) 2017-08-21 20:52:06 UTC
1, In the second step of the Mail Merge Wizard it is possible to select between Letter and E-mail message document types.
2, The title of the third step in the left side Steps list changes according to this choice: "Insert address block" if Letter is selected or "Select address list" if E-mail message is selected.
3, When selecting the third step, the wizard page title is always Insert Address Block in the right side. This is confusing if the E-mail types was selected, as there is no address block to be selected in this case, only an address list. 
See http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice-l10n-Errors-in-help-found-in-Pootle-td4218288.html for an example of such confusion.

I think it would make sense to change the wizard page title depending on the document type.

Dear Gabor Kelemen,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
