Bug report #8699

Context help - "?" in panel header all empty

Added by Jonathan Moules over 10 years ago. Updated almost 6 years ago.

Category:Documentation and Help
Affected QGIS version:2.0.1 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:fixed/implemented
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:17420


On Windows next to the "X" (close) icon there is a "?" icon on many panels. I.e. the Settings → options one.

However, after 5 minutes of searching, I've found very very little that actually has any help for it.

I've only found Settings → Options → CRS → "Automatically enable on the fly reprojection" option.
Most things on "Create a Layer from a Delimited Text File" (bonus points to them :-) ).

And one or two other things scattered around. But for the vast majority of stuff there doesn't seem to be any context sensitive help.

to help non windows users to understand the 'problem'.

see screenshot: as you can see there is both a help-button on some dialogs (which will popup the contexthelp (also visible here)).

But what is meant by this issue is the little ?-marked button..

Maybe a Qt quirk?

Nyall has committed 15e7d57f which will fix the issue when we move to Qt5.10 (not sure there will be more work on it).
Can we close this issue?

Please test with a recent QGIS release (2.18 or 3), if the issue/request is still valid change the affected version accordingly, if is fixed/implemented then close the ticket. Thanks!
