Description h.goebel 2017-09-01 10:21:41 UTC
The help for "Save a copy" is missing at least for Writer and Calc (I did not check the others), at least in English and German.

"Sava a copy" seem to have non-obvious features: In addition to what is explained at [1]
"Save a copy" seems to only save the current version and strip older versions. This is
very useful do know – and needs explanation in the help

[1] https://askubuntu.com/questions/398969/what-is-the-difference-between-save-as-and-save-a-copy

Having at least a short explanation of what this does would be really useful. Thanks.

By chance, help for "Save Remote File" is missing, too. But this function is much more obvious.
