The text in the green button tooltips in the new Start Center of LO 4.2 probably needs rewording. It looks like these were taken from the toolbar icon tooltips without any modification:
All of the tips say "Icon" although these are Buttons. However there are also other problems.
Start Center with Extended tips is something, which perhaps many new users will often see. So I think this needs to be as good as possible.
The Open a Document Icon presents a file open dialog
The Open file Button opens a file open dialog
The Templates Icon opens the Templates and Documents dialog
The Templates Button opens the Template Manager dialog
The Document Icons each open...
The Document Buttons each open...
Currently, the Extended tooltips are not displayed in English. See https://www.libreoffice.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=73228 for more
Hi Milos, could you recheck with 18.104.22.168? Maybe I'm "holding it wrong"(TM) but I can't seem to reproduce.
Maybe I cannot reproduce because a) I've set language to german and there are no translated tooltips? b) OSX specific?
Strange thing is, I also tried 22.214.171.124a0+ (no localization there) and als ono tooltips showup.
Please re-check with 126.96.36.199 and set back to unconfirmed if this perists.

I've tested it in 184.108.40.206 (64 bit ubuntu). Meanwhile, I've installed also the Czech and German version and tested them too. They behave exactly the same.
For example, in German, if Extended tips is checked, all document thumbnails and the also the Hilfe and Extensions buttons show this tooltip:
Klicken Sie ein Symbol ein, um ein Neues Dokument...", which is nonsense - this text does not have anything to do with those buttons.
In English, no tooltips show at all (which I find to be a bug, too), but those, which are displayed in other languages, are translation of "Click an icon to open a new document..."
I guess that the mechanism which assigns the extended tooltips does not work well, since they display differently in English vs. other languages:
Other languages: incorrect tooltips
English: file path (perhaps this is the right thing)
Other languages: meaningless tooltip text
"if Extended tips is checked"
If you tell me where that option is, I'll happily set it to active and test and most likely will be able to confirm this bug.
Maybe all this seems obvious to you, but the more details the repro steps are the faster we can get this bugs in to NEW status.
a screenshot would be helpful as well

you did not read the alert when changing version field.
I'm reverting it now.
you should have seen it saying: "You are changing the version of the bug to a later version. As the version field of the bug should show the earliest version manifesting the bug, please reconsider, if you really want to do this. Please do not change a version, because it also manifests in a later version. for details, please see the guidelines"
version should ALWAYS indicate the FIRST version where the bug is present, not the last.
Reproducible for me in branch 4.2 (tested in 22.214.171.124+) under Ubuntu 13.10 x86-64
Extended tooltips are not correctly managed in the new StartCenter:
1/ in green area: icon instead of button
2/ more important : in the recent files area, extended tooltips do not show the minimal information given by the tooltip. In this case these "extended tooltips" do extend nothing but give only a general information which is not related to recent files.
Best regards. JBF

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.4 or later) https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT:
- Update the version field
- Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
- Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug 3. Leave a comment with your results. 4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa
Thank you for your help!
