Description rvojta 2006-08-09 11:36:13 UTC
I use on both platforms - Microsoft Windows and GNU/Linux. I have
no idea how this really works, but main entries of help content are displayed in
different order. It's really annoying when you get accustomed to one order and
... Look at my screenshots.

What is different but should not be different, and what is Windows/Linux specific?
I only see two different language versions in your samples. If you mean the
contents of the Contents page, this is contained in the *.tree files which are
can be translated as every translator thinks is best.
Comment 4 rvojta 2006-08-09 14:55:26 UTC
Look at the order of the main entries (Contents page, -cs version):

 - Windows - first entry is "Textove dokumenty"
 - Linux   - first entry is "Instalace"

Look at the third attachment. Help window in front comes from Linux version and
help window in back comes from Windows version from VMWare.
Comment 7 Uwe Fischer 2006-08-09 15:27:17 UTC
fpe, please research how we can ensure the same order for translated *.tree file
lines as in the english source
Comment 8 frank.thomas.peters 2006-08-09 15:35:11 UTC
The sequence of top level entries is not determined by the tree files 
since these entries come from multiple tree files. It's a question 
of what sequence these tree files are read by the application.

Peter Burow may know.

pb -> abi: please take over. The help app doesn't sort these entries.

->2.x due to limited resources, P3 is also questionable as this task
probably does not match the P3 Priority condition: "P3 marks non-
trivial problems which probably affect a noticeable number of users.
I doubt that many users use OOo on multiple platforms. Anyway
keeping P3 for now.

-> 3.x
