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).
Why not echo description to stdout (so it can be dumped to file)?
Why no "/?" alias for windows?
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: 126.96.36.199 release
188.8.131.52 - same thing
what about LibO 184.108.40.206?
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?
Confirmed, setting as enhancement.

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.
thanks for informations Mike.
let's set this as WORKSFORME
anyone feel free to reopen if you are not agree.
