Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-12-04 08:05:27 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. Start LibO
2. Open Help - Find Tab
3. Search string "Resets modified values" <Find>

You will find lots of items, and clicking you mostly will find:

Resets modified values back to the LibreOffice default values.

That's wrong, "Back" resets properties in the dialog to those from the moment before the first edit in the dialog.

The help text is for "Reset" buttons.

It might be that you find some few buttons with wrong text in it (Back button does reset or vice versa), for that problem please submit an extra Bug.

This one is related to "Bug 39452 - Back button in Options dialogs does not work as expected"
"Bug 43515 - [Task]: RESET / BACK button text and function interchanged" (there please comment if function does not match with button text)

Please feel free to reassign (or reset Assignee to default) if it’s not your area or if provided information is not sufficient. Please set Status to ASSIGNED if you accept this Bug.

No "Back" is found, only "Reset"

And if this is the right way to search on "Back" 


then there do not seem to be any instances of help texts that use "Back" to refer to "Reset" ==> WFM

Indeed, I did a git grep -i in helpcontent2 and the situation has changed.
