Description Andrea Pescetti 2014-05-15 18:16:49 UTC
We are not making clear in the application that users can report bugs, and what the steps are.

Current options are:
- Start Center, click on orb, go to, click on Contact us
- Help - About - License (!) will show you the README where you read "The OpenOffice Web site hosts BugZilla" (no link) and you must open the site.

Adding a "Report a bug" menu item to the "Help" menu as suggested by 
Brennan Novak in will improve access to bug reporting.

The best target is not Bugzilla directly (we would receive too many wrong requests) but the "Contact us" page at

The issue is not new: see for example bug 1039 and bug 55306. But, as of 2014, linking to online resources is expected.
