Help (F1) should just go to online location

Postby thomas.beale » Mon 10 Mar 2014 12:39

At the moment, Help > Help gives me the message:

The documentation isn't installed.

The ".tar.gz" or ".7z" archives are available here:
Extract an archive and set the environment through the Miscellaneous menu to indicate where the directory "doc" is then close this dialog and redo

This isn't very helpful! I think the modern way would be to just launch the default browser with a help documentation URL at To make help available offline, maybe you could provide a button 'download and install help' on the tool, which would do a http get to obtain a .zip, but I think realistically this isn't that important - being able to get to the online help is!
