Description Olivier Hallot 2018-06-05 12:44:41 UTC
The Format menu underwent changes in last releases. It's associated help pages must be updated.

Namely the file source/text/shared/00/00040502.xhp.

The current contents can be seen in


The task is to edit the XHP file with the current menu path. For example, there is no *Format - Object - Area* in Writer anymore.

This patch should get Format menu up-to-date:

But some submenus are needed to be embedded (so they can replace the control labels and short explanations that were added).

The needed submenus are listed, with some code pointers to existing fragments that can be used to construct some of these submenus, at: bug 137084, comment 9

Comment 5 sdc.blanco 2021-03-11 10:28:46 UTC
Four pages have Format menu information.  


Many appear to have been updated (sometimes as part of updating other pages), but there is still more to do.
