Libre Office tips

How do I open all past already shown LibreOffice tips or at least their list ?
I’m not sure which tag should I give to this question.

@max2, I can’t find the file where they are stored. But you could see many tips at the bottom of the official LibreOffice page.

Also, choosing menu Help - Show Tip-of-the-Day you will see the last tip displayed.

They are not stored in a file but hard-coded into the program - see tipoftheday.hrc (revision 03cafc2a) - OpenGrok cross reference for /core/cui/inc/tipoftheday.hrc

@anon73440385, I think that this is the best answer.


1) Shown tips-of-the-day are added to file registrimodifications.xcu within your user profile (which is a XML file) - but the info does not simply translate to what has been displayed to you.


<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Common/Misc">
    <prop oor:name="LastTipOfTheDayID" oor:op="fuse">
 <item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Common/Misc">
    <prop oor:name="LastTipOfTheDayShown" oor:op="fuse">

2) There is no file containing a list of available Tips-of-the-day. These are hard-coded into the program. See tipoftheday.hrc (revision 03cafc2a) - OpenGrok cross reference for /core/cui/inc/tipoftheday.hrc. If you have a language pack installed, then there is a file at <installdir>/program/resource/<langcode>/LC_MESSAGES/ which contains translations of the hard-coded tips-of- the-day into your language (+many other translations). On Linux: msgunfmt will uncompile the binary file to readable (.po) format.
