Description Edwin Sharp 2013-05-01 18:01:03 UTC
Current state: Function Wizard - Help - OpenOffice help window opens showing help for many functions.

Proposed state: Function Wizard - Help - help on selected function ONLY is displayed WITHIN Function Wizard window.

I see this as a real bug, the current inconsistent behavior (sometimes the Help button finds the correct functions (ATAN2), most times only the more general area (ATAN: "Mathematical Functions"), sometimes only entry "AOO Help". That's simply not contemporary.

Needs a lot of study, but seems easy
Comment 3 Rainer Bielefeld 2013-05-12 06:27:24 UTC
It might be useful to use this one as a Tracking bug and create separate bugs for every affected function. If you want to add a new bug report concerning a Calc function with misleading help button please cite the summary line of that new Bug here in a comment so that everybody in CC here immediately knows concerning what function the new bug is.
Comment 4 Rainer Bielefeld 2013-05-12 07:24:14 UTC
This one is not really depending on
Comment 5 Rainer Bielefeld 2013-05-22 14:07:26 UTC
I add "Bug 122370 - Wrong Help reached by Help button in Tools -> Options -> Writer -> Formatting Aids"

Comment 7 Rainer Bielefeld 2013-10-05 07:22:54 UTC
It's not plausible that this CALC TASK Bug depends on a Writer Bug

The reported problem is not a general one for all Functions in Functions Wizard, only for particular ones. I will create some tools helping to keep overview concerning already tested Functions, soon.
