Description Corné Beerse 2019-09-13 08:31:45 UTC
Description:
This morning I got a 'tip of the day' in LO-calc that I liked. Unfortunately, I needed to close/confirm the window to follow the tip. I wanted to return to the tip window but it was gone.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open LibreOffice Calc
2. Look at the tip of the day
3. Try to follow it 
4. See the tip of the day window is gone.

Actual Results:
left over with the idea of a tip and a loose route to the solution.

Expected Results:
Be able to return to the tip of the day 


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No



Additional Info:
There are alternate ways to return to the tip of the day. Like a new option at the help menu. I think about creating an alternate enhancement request for that.

The idea came while working on Libre Office Calc, hence I started this bug on calc.
Since the TipOfTheDay and the help menu are on every Window of Libre Office, I changed it to UI.

On the version: This is the version I work on. If it is not to much work, it could be transferred to older (supported) versions too.

This is fixed since the dialog is no longer modal after https://git.libreoffice.org/core/commit/97bcd0e416b1fb725b5aaade811e80d46fdaf1e2

The dialog became modal again in 
https://git.libreoffice.org/core/commit/9be58fddb9c88d0fb058dcb7936a17c9d45d0237, thus, moving it to NEW...
