Description Olivier Hallot 2014-06-22 22:43:02 UTC
Feature in Calc: Data - XML Source has no help button nor any Help content to explain its purpose.

User unfamiliar with the concept of XML input will overlook this feature because of the missing documentation.
Comment 1 Owen Genat (retired) 2014-07-19 10:43:47 UTC
Confirmed. The dialog displayed via Data > XML Source... does not link to any online Help page under GNU/Linux for any of these versions:

- v4.1.6.2 Build ID: 40ff705089295be5be0aae9b15123f687c05b0a
- v4.2.5.2 Build ID: 61cb170a04bb1f12e77c884eab9192be736ec5f5

v4.1.6.2: Scalc/sc.ImageButton.25773.11
v4.2.5.2: Scalc/sc.ImageButton.25774.11

Also tested under v4.3.0.2 and v4.4.0.0 (display: Scalc/modules/scalc/ui/xmlsourcedialog/selectsource) but I imagine these are not expected to have valid help pages yet.

Status set to NEW. Version set to v4.1.6.2. Summary amended for clarity.
