Description Mike Kaganski 2018-12-18 05:10:34 UTC
https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/176575/mailmerge-wizard-doesnt-show-6132/

> Start LibreOffice Writer and it shows Untitled 1 empty document.
> Select Tools -> Mail Merge Wizard...
> Nothing happens. No Wizard. Nothing.
> ...
> It seems the default OpenSuse install includes all of LibreOffice - except Base.

So the proposal is to show an informational message in this case.
