    Question LibreOffice built-in help files?

    Hello

    Two days ago i brought my Tower up to the same standard as my Lappy, ie, i replaced its OS [a different Linux distro] with openSUSE Tumbleweed KDE [after weeks of prevarication, i finally did it - yay]. Today i was creating a document in its LibreOffice Writer [Version: 5.4.0.1] in which i need to use some Outline Numbering. I don't like its default indenting, so was going to change it, & thought that first i'd see what advice LO's built-in Help files might have. Unfortunately after clicking on the Help button in the Bullets & Numbering popup dialog, another popup appeared, telling me [the bolding is its, not mine; i'm simply mimicking it]:
    LibreOffice Help Not Installed
    The LibreOffice built-in help is not installed on your computer.
    You may either install it from our website or your system’s repositories, or read an online version.
    I've not yet examined the LO website, but i did use YaST2 to see if i could download/install from the openSUSE repos [which for me are, btw, as follows]
    Code:
    linux-3l20:~> zypper lr -dRepository priorities are without effect. All enabled repositories share the same priority.

    I searched for "LibreOffice", then examined each package not yet installed, but none seemed to be the Help documentation.

    Can anyone please guide me to where i find these built-in help files in the repos?

    Hi
    If you look at the LibreOffice change log... it was dropped last year to point at the online wiki version (configure option --without-help).

    Code:

    * Disable bundled help and point to upstream wiki always (speeds
        up build quite a bit)
