Description sasha.libreoffice 2012-03-30 03:10:32 UTC
Step to reproduce:
in Impress do Insert->Animated image
Expected: dialog has button "Help"
Actually: no such button

Help contains topic "Animation" about this dialog. So, problem is in absence of button "Help"

PS: though help exist, not so easy to understand how to create GIF animation using this dialog. May be it is makes sense to add step by step instruction how to create animation? Like this:
1. Select "Bitmap object" option
2. Select object in presentation for first frame
3. Press button below word "Image"
4. Select object in presentation for next frame
5. set time delay for this frame
6. Press button below word "Image"
7. Repeat steps 4,5,6 for all needed frames
8. Press button "Create"

Inherited from OOo, we never had a Help button there.

Sure I'll take it. Working on another one right now but I'll get this one done at some point.
