Displays a help text when you rest the cursor on an icon, a menu command, or a control on a dialog.

Document status

Printing sets "document modified" status

Specifies whether the printing of the document counts as a modification. When this option is marked, the very next time the document is closed you are asked if the changes should be saved. The print date is then entered in the document properties as a change.

Year (two digits)

Defines a date range, within which the system recognizes a two-digit year.

In LibreOffice, years are indicated by four digits, so that the difference between 1/1/99 and 1/1/01 is two years. This Year (two digits) setting allows the user to define the years in which two-digit dates are added to 2000. To illustrate, if you specify a date of 1/1/30 or later, the entry "1/1/20" is recognized as 1/1/2020 instead of 1/1/1920.
