Description Cor Nouws 2019-01-04 12:28:47 UTC
tools > Options > LibreOffice > General .. check Extended Help.

- then for example Writer
- context menu
- Style > Edit Style
- mouse over controls shows info
  > mouse over buttons Reset and Standard doesn't show info

one expects explanation (is the case in older OOo's...)

Hi Cor,
Do I need to have help installed to show these extended tips ?

I guess so - I do not expect the texts are retrieved from the www.

helpcontent seems real confused about these buttons, but the help is there is adjusted a bit

hmm, doesn't work for me.
But the Extended tips are are broken at more places.
The statusbar has tips when the option Extended tips is turned off, and not when it's on..
Will try to find out what works and what not.
Comment 7 Caolán McNamara 2019-06-08 16:26:05 UTC
extended tips are broken (see bug 120538) in the "new html help" configurations (--with-help=html) as used in the tdf build bots, but not the "old internal help" configuration (--with-help)
