Description Tony 2016-09-21 03:02:48 UTC
Some of the krunner plugins don't have a "help" or "configuration" button showing how to use/configure them. 
Ex: the "Dictionary" plugin lets you "define" the keyword need it to run it, the web shortcuts can be change on system settings BUT  the spell checker, although it can be configure in system settings, does not show how to use the krunner plugin or the unit converter which can't be configure on system settings and does not have a "help" button either.

The lack of this may lead users (like me) to believe they do not work, are broken or something alike due to the lack of this information.

Reproducible: Always

I am working on that. There will be (hopefully) an extra usage button where the config/info buttons are.

Maybe inline help will be integrated too.
