Description Jan Holesovsky 2015-09-07 08:34:44 UTC


the sections with id="howtoget" were renamed "SectionN", where N is a number >2.

This is probably to keep section id's uniqueness inside the file.

But we loose the "To access this command" sections, except the first occurrence.

Manually naming id's as "howtoget" in the xhp file does work and the "To access this command..." sections are displayed.

I cant reproduce this in 3.1.1 or my modified version of 3.1.0.

Was the section id renamed on open or on save and what steps are needed to reproduce.
Comment 2 Regina Henschel 2015-09-15 21:52:36 UTC
I cannot reproduce either. Jan, can you please give a step by step description to reproduce it?
Comment 3 Jan Holesovsky 2015-09-16 07:50:48 UTC
Actually, Olivier reported this, I've only copy/pasted that from bug 93580 :-)

Olivier - can you please check & provide more info if you still see the issue?  Thank you!

Setting back to NEW so Olivier can give his input.

To avoid the issue, just do not issue 2 sections with the same name under HelpAuthoring Tool (section id uniqueness)

So, in files where the issue shows, break the contents into different files.

One case that shows up is in the statistics help page of Calc.

Helpauthoring extension is deprecated. closing wontfix.
