  • 19480 Please make context-sensitive help more context sensitive

    E.g. here this http://i.imgur.com/jMijVuY.png -> Text Compare Overview

    In this the 21st century, one should not have to hunt manually in the Help.

    Nor then discover that Find is missing from the Index. Please tell me, how actually am I expected to find the Help for the Find panel?

    Thanks for the feedback. Previously, we had a link because the Find dialog was a separate dialog. I'll open a tracker entry to see if we can get similar behavior with the new Find panel.

        For now, you would need to use the Search tab within the Help.

          In case you were unaware, that shows 33 titles none of which include the word Find.

          IIRC, about it has been about four years since Scooter Software said it was going to try and get the docs up to date w.r.t. the program. Have you got a target date?

            No set date for delivery; the Help file project is constantly evolving in what it needs. For example, this Find issue is new to BC4 and wasn't around 4 years ago. I've noted it for update and we'll see if we can improve it.

              It's easy. Just write a topic for each command. Windows programs have had this for decades.
