Description Timur 2019-12-15 17:17:09 UTC
Tools-Options-Writer-Print opens wrong help:
(there's https://help.libreoffice.org/6.5/en-US/text/shared/01/04050000.html)

I'll confirm for this, as noticed in bug 122706.
But we should check all Options dialog help here.

This may be the same problem as bug #94503 - which I don't see anymore in GTK3 vclplug, but its still present with QT5 and gen.

You did only click on the left treeview and not inside the tab itself?

Also it is useful to set the environment variable HELP_DEBUG to true and enable extended help on Options - General page. 
That should put the HID into the extended tooltips bubble (if offline help is present) which then can be looked up in the helpcontent2 git repository.

If I click just on the left treeview, I see general Writer help.
If I click in the tab itself, I see Advanced help.
So both are wrong.

Dieter, when documentation needs to be updated, it's Documentation.
Here, Writer needs to be updated, so I set back component.
