Description Drew Jensen 2018-07-06 16:39:28 UTC
tested with ubuntu 18.04 (64bit) and build:
Build ID: 378e26bd4f22a135cef5fa17afd5d4171d8da21a
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk2; 
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); Calc: group threaded

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new Impress file.
2. Select from the templates (I choose Alizarin)
3. Go to the second page of the file
4. In the content section of the page, click on the icon for add table
5. The Insert Table dialog opens
6. Click on the HELP button or enter F1
7. After selecting a table size and inserting it, select a cell inside the table and enter F1

Actual Results:
The top level help page for Impress is displayed.

Expected Results:
Some help page that deals with Inserting and or working with Tables in Impress. I could find no such page when I searched in the help system.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Confirmed on Windows 10 Ent 64-bit en-US with
Version: (x64)
Build ID: 378e26bd4f22a135cef5fa17afd5d4171d8da21a
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: GL; 
Locale: en-US (en_US); Calc: CL

No local help installed so F1 to web help...

Think it should be linking to the "Table Bar" article, which does show in the shared "default toolbar configuration" article -> main0200.html for IMPRESS help, but on selection it is annotated as a WRITER article. Guess there is a whole class of these that need some sort of cross index?

Dear Drew Jensen,

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 http://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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
