why does tips dialog always open at start of libreoffice 6.x

Every time I open LibreOffice the tips dialog pops up. Even if I unselect the dialog it still comes back. How do I opt-out of this?

May be your selection doesn’t find its way into the user profile due to it being corrupted. Hence I’d suggest you reset the user profile, make your choice once more and check again.

Can you add more details about your installation? Show the About… dialog, and the first group of data there is the part that’s helpful. In my case:

Build ID: 4e471d8c02c9c90f512f7f9ead8875b57fcb1ec3
CPU threads: 8; OS: Mac OS X 10.13.6; UI render: default; VCL: osx;
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

There could be OS level differences that are relevant to providing and answer here.
