In the Tools > AutoCorrect Options... dialog, there is a Reset button. This button doesn't seem to be documented in the Help topics that open when the user clicks the Help button. (A different Help topic opens depending on which tab of the dialog is active.)
The user may have some questions about this Reset button, such as:
* Does it reset options to the "factory defaults," or to what they were when the user most recently opened this dialog?
* Does it reset all tabs of the dialog, or only the active tab?
* Is there a confirmation dialog once this button is clicked?
Issue noticed in LO 126.96.36.199.
actually the reset button deletes any of the new autocorrect entries you entered in the replacement table until you click ok.
I mean, if you add a "yellwo -> yellow" new replacement and you click NEW, then if you change your mind, instead of clicking OK (which stores the new autocorrect and exits the replacement table) you click on RESET which deletes the new entry
but keeps the old one.
so it doesn't resets the whole dataset to the factory default but just to the last saved version... and there's no confirmation dialog.
regarding the documentation, it's true that that function is not documented.
see link here: https://help.libreoffice.org/4.3/Common/Replace
to be honest, also the OK and CANCEL buttons have no description in the help (and never had since LiO 3.3.0).
so I'm editing summary notes, changing version field and adding this report to Bug 80430 - LOCALHELP: Features x Documentation gap meta issue
basically the functions are:
OK -> stores changes and exits the replacement table
CANCEL -> discard recent changes and exits the replacement table
RESET -> discard recent changes but leaves the replacement table open for further edit
tommy27's comments don't seem to confirm the following:
> * Does it reset all tabs of the dialog, or only the active tab?
I verified as follows:
1. On the Exceptions tab, add an entry under "Words with TWo INitial CApitals."
2. On the Replace tab, add an entry such as "aobut -> about".
3. On the Replace tab, click Reset.
4. Verify that the entry just added on the Replace tab is gone, but the entry just added on the Exceptions tab is still there.
So it appears the Reset button affects only the active tab.
Maybe the documentation team would have noticed this, but I'm mentioning it again just to make sure.
I have also updated the bug summary with "all tabs of dialog" per the first paragraph of comment 0.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.4 or later)
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
