Description lars 2002-09-02 15:21:30 UTC
it'd be nice if one could press F1 and get a cause and solution to an error if 
an error appears.

For example if a cell inn Calc gives the result Err:522.

Or rather than F1 perhaps click in the corner of the cell because there is an 
Questionmark icon displayed (this is a suggestion) which then gets the help.

Perhaps use the help technique descrobed in the issue mentioned below.

Or perhaps if an error occurs, fade in a help window automatically immediately 
like described in issue 7185.

F1 is reserved by ordinary (contextual) Help.

Ok, if an error occurs, its cause should be told to the user, ie 
when "a cell in Calc gives the result Err:522."

use the functionality of issue 7185
Comment 5 falko.tesch 2003-10-08 15:25:26 UTC
DO NOT re-open issues if you
a) agree with the decesion and
b) have already provided an alternative in another issue
This creates a lot of unnessary work.

what's wrong!
