There is no such information in the help file and writer guide 3.4
Operating System: Windows XP
Version: 188.8.131.52 release
I am confirming this bug. Changes:
- Status set to NEW.
- Component set to Documentation (although it also relates to WWW and the underlying Writer facility) as this is what the original report indicates.
- Platform to All.
- Importance to low, and severity to enhancement (refer next point).
- Dependency on bug 67619 added as this seems like the related enhancement request to get the Writer facility itself improved. It would be good if someone from QA could determine if one of these is a duplicate of the other or whether separate bugs can be kept to track changes to a facility and the related documentation.
- Summary edited to more clearly indicate that the problem is with edit and delete tasks of managing caption text, particularly in relation to graphics.
Under GNU/Linux running v184.108.40.206, right-click on an inserted graphic > Caption... > click Help button results in this link:
... which here displays "There is currently no text in this page. You can search for this page title in other pages, or search the related logs, but you do not have permission to create this page."
In the Writer Guide v4.0, pp.257-260 and pp.284-286 there is information on adding captions to graphics and tables respectively. There is no information on subsequent editing or removal. The problem of caption removal for graphics is especially difficult due to the caption paragraph, by default, being inserted into a frame with the graphic.
I feel part of the problem here is that there is a user expectation to be able to more simply alter caption details by right-clicking on the related object (graphic or table) selecting Caption... and THEN be offered clearer options for add / edit / delete. Currently the entire facility is centred on the task of adding captions. Changing / improving the documentation will likely depend upon enhancing this facility i.e., bug 67619.
