Description Martin Srebotnjak 2019-06-12 07:36:42 UTC
When the new tooltip window opens on macOS there is a rectangle in it selected that does not make any sense. See attached screenshot.

BTW, all the text except for the bottom button bar is centered in the text area right of the bulb icon. However, the button bar is centered on the dialog width. This creates a clear mismatch in alignment and creates an unpleasant UX. Either the text above the button bar should be aligned left (to the bulb icon) or the button bar should start and be centrally aligned from the bulb icon right border (probably with reordering the check button somewehere else in the dialog).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open LibreOffice and one of its modules.

Actual Results:
See the screenshot attached.

Expected Results:
The area should not be selected.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

On Win10 with master sources updated today, I could reproduce this.
=> confirming.

I noticed that:
86      else
87      {
88          m_pLink->set_uri("");
89          m_pLink->set_label(CuiResId(STR_HELP_LINK));
90          m_pLink->set_visible(true);
91          //converts aLink into the proper offline/online hyperlink
92          m_pLink->connect_clicked(LINK(this, TipOfTheDayDialog, OnLinkClick));
93      }
(see https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/cui/source/dialogs/tipofthedaydlg.cxx?r=d1d44e1d#88)
Heiko: should STR_HELP_LINK be removed? If not, any thoughts?
Comment 3 Heiko Tietze 2019-06-12 10:10:46 UTC
Looked good on Linux, *grmpf*. We should explicitely set the focus on the Close button since the (hidden) link to the local help is needed (of course we could dispose and recreate too).
