Description Heiko Tietze 2019-03-21 09:13:06 UTC
The awesome list of tips being showed on Twitter should become available for everyone by presenting a Tip-Of-The-Day dialog on startup.

Heiko, where will this dialogue get text for "Tip-Of-The-Day"?

We do have a long list here https://pad.documentfoundation.org/p/marketing (line 388ff) that will go into strings.hrc for translation. I'd also appreciate to show small images on the tip a) for aesthetics and b) to illustrate the tip.

You can open Options, navigate to Libreoffice -> General, and tick 'Show "Tip of the Day" dialog on start-up'.

You cannot open the dialog manually, I don't see need for this. Just reactivate the daily tip per Tools > Options > View.
