Help display settings
The Help system can be accessed in Help view, or separate Help window. The
window can be the default window with an embedded browser, or a full external
browser of your choice.
If the embedded browser is supported on your system, help will use it by default
to display help. If you prefer to always use a full external browser, you may
select this behavior in the
Help preference page
By default, context-sensitive help for workbench elements is displayed in
the Help view, and context-sensitive help for dialogs is displayed in the
dialog's tray, which is similar to the Help view.
If you prefer to display
context-sensitive help in infopops when working in the workbench, in dialogs or
both, change the selection in the help preference page.
A topic selected in the Help view can be displayed in place, in the Help view,
or in the editor area. You can set this preference in the Help preference page.
On some platforms, with no embedded browser, the topics will always be displayed
in an external browser.
