Description genial.daneben 2014-04-02 07:44:22 UTC
Starting LibreOffice.../program/soffice.exe --help from command-line, a window/dialog opens with command/switch descriptions, the text goes past its height, but no scrolling option is available.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start soffice --help from CLI
2. "Help Message" window opens
3. Maximize, try to Ctrl+A the text, etc the "Help Message" window, no way to read the whole text.
4. Close button doesn't work too (probably the "textbox" overlays it).

Also:
Why not echo description to stdout (so it can be dumped to file)?
Why no "/?" alias for windows? 
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: 4.2.1.1 release

4.2.2.1 - same thing
Comment 2 tommy27 2014-07-22 04:44:16 UTC
what about LibO 4.2.5.2?
Comment 3 genial.daneben 2014-08-16 13:21:33 UTC
Basically same thing. The message window does fit into a 1920x1080 screen (couldn't try before), but on lower resolutions it again lays over the close button/past dialog bottom; text cannot be selected.
Why not just add a memo/textbox?

I believe that changes to bug 100826 have made this bug obsolete. Now the --help output is shown in a console window (either caller's if used from CLI, or a new one), and it has usual console's scrolling capabilities.
