[Libreoffice-ux-advise] [Bug 75563] New: Open Extension Manager from Extension button in the new Start Center

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=75563

          Priority: medium
            Bug ID: 75563
                CC: [hidden email]
          Assignee: [hidden email]
           Summary: Open Extension Manager from Extension button in the
                    new Start Center
          Severity: minor
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: All
          Reporter: [hidden email]
          Hardware: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: 4.2.0.4 release
         Component: ux-advise
           Product: LibreOffice

The new Start Center has an Extensions button in its bottom left.

The behavior of this button was never specified, so the new implementation
follows the old one in this regard: it opens the extensions website.

To me, it would make more sense to open the Extension Manager window instead
which shows all installed extensions and also has a prominent link to the
extensions website.

Then, having the Extension Manager in the Tools menu would be redundant.

Then how is one supposed to find the Extension Manager if LO is opened by
opening a document directly ?

Of course, that is when you don’t have any document open.

...but we also have the redundant "File - New - Text Document" etc. menu
entries in the start center.

Yes, but it is not a bad thing that should be avoided. To the contrary, that
increases the probability that new users discover this functionality.

Best regards. JBF
