snipp 1

I don't find any specific help for the choices after selecting paste-special in LO Writer.
snipp 1 is the window with choices pasting from a text
snipp 2 is the window with choices pasting from a sheet
snipp 3 is what I can see from offline help, but the online help does not say more.

Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1

If you want to paste a text or a CALC-table with a right mouse click into WRITER -> PASTE SPECIAL -> MORE OPTIONS -> calc8 or Libreoffice Writer and then click HELP then always the LO online help
opens, which deals with Paste Special in CALC.

If you check it in the LO offline help then there is no Paste Special at all shown.

For a partial help look at  http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/48734/inserire-e-collegare-aree-di-foglio-di-calcolo-in-un-doc/?answer=50706#post-id-50706

I posted a connected question in the forum, nobody replied, now I've solved that problem myself.

Why the title edit?
What do you mean for "LOCALHELP"?
If it only means "offline help" pay attention: help *when in Writer* is fully missing both offline and online (same when in Draw or Impress).

LO   Win10

It seems nothing has changed
 (look at https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Paste_Special)

(In reply to QA Administrators from comment #6)
> ** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **
Summary (01/12/2017):
Still in LO and still in ANY help (local, online, IT, EN) I cannot find any specific help about paste-special for Writer: how/when to use each format command? in particular with respect to the connecting areas of spreadsheet, I had the habit of using in MSWord (and this is a subject also treated in other bugs).

In IT I see:
<sshot 1> 
<sshot 2> 

and clicking on Aiuto (Help) this is all that I can see:
<sshot 3>

Further, going to  https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Edit
then to https://help.libreoffice.org/4.4/Common/Paste_Special
I can find something but only about When in Calc:
<sshot 4>
This is also the reason why I had not shared the addition of "LOCALHELP" in the text of the bug subject:
<sshot 5>
