Description sdc.blanco 2020-01-02 17:01:33 UTC
The summary says it all.

Open a paragraph style dialog box, select Highlighting tab, click on Help button.

Actual result: "Area" help file is opened.
Expected result:  "Highlighting" help file.

Additional information:

- could not find a relevant help file for highlighting, which may explain the origin of the problem.

I have checked it on Writer:
Version: (x64)
Build ID: 60da17e045e08f1793c57c00ba83cdfce946d0aa
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: default; VCL: win; 
Locale: pl-PL (pl_PL); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

I can confirm the bug, choosing "help" for "highlighting" displays help for "area".

This is actually correct - sort of - because the dialog opens the Area tab page (with the fill buttons).
