OK, let me be more precise "has improvement potential in its current form" :)

This is a great document.... BUT (:-))... the need to write as the first
sentence on each item whether it requires a single or a double-click
already shows that the status bar items can be improved.
The help text on that page is great, eg. BLK is described really
nicely. My English within-LO help page say on BLK: "A block of text can
be selected." ahh, mmh, ohh,...right. WUT?
And the item has no tooltip at all by default.
If you need to point me to a 3rd party wiki page in German to explain me
how selection modes work mean that *we* (as in LO) didn't do a good
job. (which I exaggerate to 'useless')

Ahh, that is a nice one. Unfortunately, I cannot assign an icon to it,
so it is displayed as a very wide text. Thanks.
