Description Alan 2014-05-16 08:57:31 UTC
Selecting Help-LibreOffice Help from the main menu takes me to a useless web page that simply explains the help sub-menu items to me, but has no links to the help system. Impossible to get help!

If you are redirected to https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Help, simply click https://help.libreoffice.org/Main_Page link on the left.

Great! So what's the big deal with being able to go direct to the main page from the program instead of https://help.libreoffice.org/swriter/.uno:HelpIndex?Language=en-US&System=WIN&Version=4.2#bm_id3149178 (not the page you suggested) where it currently takes me? If I click on "Help - LibreOffice Help" I expect to get help. Other programs can do this!

Hi, if you install the help files, you'll be redirected to the main menu, this is a restriction of the wiki. Set it as an enhancement for the wiki help. Sophie
