    The last beta update I downloaded a couple days ago, neither row expanders nor modal popups worked.

    I suppose this is "some" progress, however, if I am searching for password information or filtering record information, I don't see how the WIKI will be beneficial with the F1 button?? Is it and I am missing the boat?

    It appears this is only beneficial if you know the function you are currently using.

    Anyway just my 2 cents.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    The F1 button is for context sensitive help. If you need to search for something, you would serach the wiki, as you do the current help file. If you set the help source to wiki, it opens up the wiki when you open help, not only when you hit the F1 key. That is what I took away from the video.

    I am running build 3539, and do not see the 'Wiki' help option; is there an update I need to download to enable this, or is it still a work-in-progress? Thx.

    I would imagine it will be in the next release. There are several items for which there are videos that have not been released as of yet.

    We are still testing the next release internally. We'll post a release candidate in the new Release Candidate forum when we think it's stable enough for wider testing.
