Description Rainer Bielefeld 2013-08-18 14:47:42 UTC
Steps how to reproduce:
1. In BZ start to report a new bug
2. Select Product "Calc"
3. Click Component hyperlink, what leads to component selection page with help
   Help text: "...  related to programming ...", that's all

That hint is not useful at all, an expert should improve text so that a normal user can find out for what that component should be used.

By the way, some other help texts contain the same useless trivialities (inherited from far past), nobody needs explication that Component "Printing" is concerning "... printing tasks ...". Texts should be improved.

IMHO not meaningless but save-export is missing help and ui should be related to ui issues and not to issues the reporter can not decide upon.

If we can agree on some suggested new descriptions I can add them.   

From looking at the existing issues under "programming" it looks like they are mainly related to macros.  But why are they not then under the App Dev product?
