LO ver. 5.1.0.3 calc - missing menu functions

This upgrade has destroyed the functionality of a spreadsheet I utterly
depend upon throughout my day.

So far, here is what I've discovered, in a mere few minutes working with
it, and this is just on the main menu ("file, edit", etc.):

* INSERT: missing - "Cells, Rows, Columns, Sheet" - LO Help says they are
there. Look at "Inserting rows", etc. But they are not.
* EDIT: missing - the "Fill > Series" function. Again, LO help says it's
there - Look at "filling;cells, automatically". But it's not.

This is a disaster for me. I'm reverting to previous version, just so I can
get my work done.

Tom

Re: LO ver. 5.1.0.3 calc - missing menu functions

Update - my apologies for omitting this information, although I doubt that
it much matters in this case:

I'm running Linux Mint - Cinnamon 17.2 (Rafaela), based on Ubuntu 14.04

You will find all these items under "Sheet".  The built-in help seems to be
out-of-date.

Graham's right of course. In fact, it takes less than a minute to find
the information in the online release notes.

BUT - I do have to sympathise with the OP's situation; things really
shouldn't move around like this without warning the hapless user.
Zero-order solution: how about a simple link from the 'Help' menu to the
release notes, plus a popup on first running a new version to remind the
user?

Best would be to correct the help :) So if anyone of you has some time
and want to help, you are more than welcome, no need to know how to
code, the only requested skill is to write.
In the meantime, we are trying to document the changes here:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Comparison_between_menus_in_LO_4.4.7.2_and_5.1.0.2
It's translated from the French documentation here:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Comparison_between_menus_in_LO_4.4.7.2_and_5.1.0.2/fr
Here also, if you have some time and know enough French to help with the
translation, you are very welcome. Of course, the documentation team
will guide you in each step, either for writing help content or to edit
the wiki :)

Kind regards
Sophie

O people! there has come to you indeed an admonition from your Lord
and a healing for what is in the breasts and a guidance and a mercy

Say: In the grace of Allah and in His mercy-- in that they should
rejoice; it is better than that which they gather.
