Description sawakaze 2020-07-26 01:23:08 UTC
On writer, after following steps, i can not view helppage.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open writer
2. insert table
3. select table and right click on Navigator. 
-> popup menu
4. select "Rename"
-> popup Rename object dialog
5. Press Help 
-> show "Could not find help page (404)"

Actual Results:
show "Could not find help page (404)"

Expected Results:
show help page.
note: not exist help page, but break to link
help page is text/shared/01/05190000.html

this page is able to open from "Drawing Objects" Rename page.
i think added rename function on libreoffice 7.0 can not open helppage.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
i confirm this version

I confirm it with

CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19041; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI: en-GB

Actual result: Help in "Rename Object" dialog opens https://help.libreoffice.org/7.0/en-GB/text/swriter/main0000.html?System=WIN&DbPAR=WRITER

Expected Result: ??? (Couldn't find an adequate help page)

STR gives me: https://help.libreoffice.org/7.1/en-US/text/swriter/01/04040000.html

NB 1.  bug 130733 has link to the patch that possibly gives WFM/Fixed for this bug.

NB 2.  If you click the Help button a second time (in the Rename dialog), then you will also get the Help Home page  (similar to:  bug 129745)
Comment 3 Rafael Lima 2022-01-04 12:44:27 UTC
Following the steps from the OP is leading to:

Which is not correct, because this is the help page for the Insert > Bookmark dialog, which has a Rename button. So the help page above is about this button.

Linking the Help button to the link below will not suffice, because this help page is about when you are assigning a name for an object (not renaming it from the Navigator)

There doens't exist a help page for this small dialog. So the solution is to create a new one and add the HID into this new help page.

Tested on:

Comment 4 Dieter 2022-01-04 12:57:05 UTC
We would need a general page for renaming options, because it's the same dialog (and therefor the same help-button) for every kin d of object. But is it really necessary to have a help-button for changing a name? So perhaps it's easier to delete that button in the dialog.
