Description ace_dent 2014-03-01 11:07:53 UTC
Icon themes contain 'localised' images for certain help topics, e.g.:

This would require that online help supports the same run-time image fallback as occurs when rendering icons in the UI, e.g.:

If no localised image is found (res/helpimg/XX/), it should fallback to the images in the parent directory (res/helpimg/). During testing, I discovered this doesn't occur; guessing all images are simply hardcoded links from help content to the current icon theme.

- Select a different locale (after installing), which has different images in res/helpimg/XX ... Korean (ko) is a good choice for clear difference in images.
- View online help topics, such as:
> Text Formatting Bar
> Line and Filling Bar
- Non-localised help images are used from res/helpimg/. It should display the localised  version.
- Additionally, icons are not localised (check Bold, Italic, etc.) and should be taken from /cmd/ko/ ...

I'm not sure if this ever worked? Is there a reasonable user expectation for localised images in help? Currently the 'cost' of bundling localised helpimages is ~1.5MB per install.

Testing: Version:, Mac.

Isn't this the same as, or very similar to, bug 75637?

Similar but a different Issues. One deals with images *across* different icon themes (75637) for customisation; this deals with localisation images *within* an icon theme.
