Description sdc.blanco 2020-10-12 00:17:29 UTC
This report is motivated by bug 108007, which notes that it is difficult to use help to find out how to change page margins (e.g., as a new user).

Here are some illustrations, with suggestions for simple concrete improvements.

1. Search in index with "margins"

Result:

GLOBAL
margins -- pages
margins -- shadows

WRITER
page margins on rulers
margins -- setting with the mouse
adjusting page margins and cell widths
paragraphs -- indents, margins and columns

------------------
2. Search in index with "page margins"

Result:

WRITER
page margins on rulers
adjusting page margins and cell widths

------------------

3.  Search in index with "changing"

Result:  "changing -- margins" does not appear.

-------------------

Problems:
1.  Searching for "page margins" should also show "margins -- pages".  
    (This may possibly give a solution to bug 108007 )

2.  Searching for "Changing" should have a "Changing -- margins" index item.

    Maybe that is enough to resolve bug 108007, or if that bug is followed and
    a special page is made, then it should link there.

Additional problem:

3. The help page linked to "adjusting page margins and cell widths" does not discuss "cell widths"
