Tips and Extended Tips provide help while you work.


Tips provide you with the names of toolbar buttons. To display a tip, rest the pointer over a toolbar button until the name of the button appears.

Tips are also displayed for some elements in a document, such as chapter names when you scroll through a long document.

Tip.png Tips are always enabled.

Extended Tips

Extended tips provide a brief description about buttons and commands. To display an extended tip, press Shift+F1, then point to a button or command.

Tip.png If you always want extended tips instead of tips, enable the extended tips on Tools - Options' - LibreOffice - General'.
