1) Open Writer

3) Start typing some words and the tooltip still wont appear
4) Press ctrl+enter for page break and then the tooltip will appear

The tooltip was introduced in 4.4 in bug 82708.

@Jay: I tried to reproduce it with LO (Win 8.1), but I also do not have a tooltip after inserting a page break.  Was there any difference in, that you know or am I doing something wrong?

@Andy: Still see it with 4.4 daily.

Also noticed that if you open a document with multiple pages, the tooltip wont show until a new page is created in the document.
