Description:
Libre Office 6.4.2.2 Tip of the Day: 12/222 path does not exist on my Mac OS 10.15 user interface. It says "Select a different icon set from Tools > Options >LibreOffice > View > User interface > Icon style." I don't have "Options" under Tools. Under View menu there is User Interface but it does not have Icon style. Did not find Icon style.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the app from desktop computer
2. Have the option to show tips on startup enabled
3. See the Tip (I don't know how to choose a specific Tip)

Actual Results:
"Select a different icon set from Tools > Options >LibreOffice > View > User interface > Icon style."

Expected Results:
I expected to find Icon style somewhere in the menu items. Give a correct path to selection of a different icon set if there are still different icon sets. If there are no different icon sets, eliminate this tip.


Reproducible: Didn't try


User Profile Reset: No



Additional Info:
There is no "About LibreOffice under "Help". Under the LibreOffice > About LibreOffice there is this info " Version: 6.4.2.2

Thanks for reporting this bug.  Unfortunately these tips are a bit Windows/Linux centric, and not well tested for macOS.

I believe the macOS equivalent of "Tools > Options" menu item is "LibreOffice > Preferences".  Would you please have a look there, and if not, look through the menus to see if there is a "Preferences" item anywhere, that should be what this tip is refering to.

I found Icon Style choice under Preferences/View, where the window is titled "Options"

Glad to hear that you've found the setting you were looking for.  I'll change the bug summary and see what the developers can do to clarify the tip on macOS.

This problem is probably not limited to just tip 12/222.

Setting to NEW as this is a valid report.
macOS uses LibreOffice > Preferences > LibreOffice > View > Icon Style.

A cursory search of cui/inc/tipoftheday.hrc on master says there are 19 matches for "Tools ▸ Options", so indeed, a rather widespread problem.
