Description Gerhard Weydt 2019-08-09 21:30:24 UTC
The help page "Query Design Bar", which can be reached by clicking the link 'icons' in the help page "Query Design", contains some icons which are not displayed, at least with Windows, and an incomprehensible sentence:

The help page for "Query Design Bar" is something like https://help.libreoffice.org/6.3/en-GB/text/shared/explorer/database/02010100.html?DbPAR=BASE#bm_id3153323 (Online-Help), for "Query Design" it's https://help.libreoffice.org/6.3/en-GB/text/shared/main0214.html?&DbPAR=BASE&System=WIN.
Four of the symbols in "Query Design Bar" are not displayed, although they are present, as can be seen when copying the page via the clipboard; I'll attach a writer document with the copied content, where the sections with missing symbols are coloured.
In the last section, "Run SQL command directly", the second sentence "If you do not display these changes in the design view, you cannot change back to the design view." is incomprehensible for me: I don't know what "these changes" refers to, so I even cannot propose a better wording.
By the way, the text "The following icon is on the SQL tab page:" just above irritated me, I took some time to understand that it refers to the last section.
I propose to add a line break above, to better separate it from the previous section, and a subclause ", which is displayed when you switch Ded´sign View off," after "following icon".

Steps to Reproduce:
1. in Base call help
2. choose designing -- queries (Base) or design view -- queries/views (Base)
3. select lin 'icons'

Actual Results:
see above

Expected Results:
see above

Reproducible: Always
