Description sdc.blanco 2023-07-17 13:52:37 UTC
1. View - Toolbars - (hover over) Navigation
2. Press F1

Actual: 404 error 
        Help ID: .uno:AvailableToolbars?Toolbar:string=navigationobjectbar

Expected:  relevant help page. https://help.libreoffice.org/24.2/en-US/text/swriter/01/02110100.html


3. Also tried with F1 from actual Navigation toolbar, with same lack of effect.

Actually, in View - Toolbars if you hover over any entry in the menu, no help page will be shown.

Each of them have their own HID though.

Can you confirm this?

BTW hovering on a menu entry and pressing F1 only works with "gen" (Linux) and "win"... it does not work with gtk3 nor kf5.

> Can you confirm this?
Yes, as generalised from the four additional cases that were tested,
where Help ID always starts:  uno:AvailableToolbars?Toolbar:string=

and toolbar identifier is shown after "=".

Tested with:

Toolbar Name            identifier

Standard                standardbar
Bullets and Numbering   numobjectbar
Find                    findbar
(custom toolbar)        custom_toolbar_53335f2b

Comment 6 Rafael Lima 2023-08-02 16:06:19 UTC
I am closing this bug as FIXED, since the original request is now fixed.

However, there's still work to be done in creating missing help pages for toolbars.
