Description Mike 2020-06-14 07:16:57 UTC
Some properties in the sidebar do not have tooltips.
Affected properties can be used in Draw and Impress.

It's "width" of the "line" properties and all properties of "shadow". That are "Enable", "Angle", "Distance", "Color" and "Transparency".

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Draw
2. Create a shape
3. Open "Shadow" in "Sidebar" -"Properties"
4. Enable checkbox "Enable"
5. Move with the mouse above the properties of "Shadow"

Actual Results:
LO does not display tooltips, if you move your mouse arrow above the properties.

Expected Results:
LO displays tooltips, if you move your mouse arrow above the properties.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
IMHO those tooltips were never implemented.


Since the implementation of sidebar

Dear Mike,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
