Description Alex Thurgood 2017-11-24 16:06:03 UTC
1) Start LibreOffice Vanilla
2) Click on Help > LibreOffice Help
3) A message is displayed that says : "Vous pouvez soit l'installer depuis notre site web ou votre dépôt logiciel, soit lire la version en ligne."

which translates to "You can either install this from our web site, or your pakcage manager, or read the online version".

This error message is manifestly incorrect for Mac users.

Possible solutions :
- make the help available to download from the AppStore
- correct the message to indicate that only online help is available

Steps to Reproduce:
See above

Actual Results:  
No possibility to download and install LO Vanilla Help bundle

Expected Results:
Either the help package should be made available, or else the message changed to specify that only online help is available

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

The 5.4.4 build is configured with --with-help and will thus include the help files.
