Description Tuomas Hietala 2023-10-20 20:40:03 UTC
There's an extended tip in LO that reads "contributor accessible description". I assume this is a forgotten placeholder that should be replaced with a proper sentence.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See https://translations.documentfoundation.org/translate/libo_ui-master/sfx2messages/en/?checksum=a5e915a57b801969

Actual Results:
The extended tip is not a proper sentence.

Expected Results:
The extended tip is a well-formed and descriptive sentence.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

The dialog starts per Writer: File > Properties: tab Description and has some more fields than shown including "Contributor". No idea how to enable/show, but the a11y tip on this control is "contributor accessible description" (PS: obviously requires a more recent version than 7.6, it was introduced by Sarper for bug 138792).

And the string is in fact kind of a placeholder. Could be "Enter the names of contributors" or the like.
