Description Heiko Tietze 2018-03-19 14:23:45 UTC
For example, "AutoCorrect" and "AutoAbstract to Presentation" both shows "Customizes and saves current menu layouts as well as creates new menus."  at the description field. That's misleading and we better leave the field empty.
Comment 1 Muhammet Kara 2018-03-19 18:01:40 UTC
If there is no help text for the selected command, it tries to get the help text of the parent class/widget, that's why this happens.
