    Default Help System

    Will there ever be a searchable standard windows Help system? (NON PDF)

    Default RE: Help System

    Yeah, I'm used to that too. The Acrobat reader actually works pretty well once you get used to it.

    What would be really nice is if you got contextual help when when you pressed F1 while the cursor was in a command or function. I'm talking about the user guide page, not the cryptic bubble help, which is mainly useful for syntax. Quattro Pro used to do this well, but has drifted way from it somewhat.

    Also the help file should start up with the search feature active. I doubt many people actually read the thing start to finish. That's what the paper books are for.


    Just my two cents.
