Rewritten Help

Guest Author

I've recently completed rewriting the Help for the PHP editor. Some of you may be surprised to learn that there is product Help documentation. To be fair, it wasn't very good. I hope you'll take the time to look at the new Help in 7.1 builds and leave comments in this thread.

Help is available in the following locations:

  • In the Table of Contents, opened by selecting Help > Help Contents. I've rewritten and expanded the topics under PHP Applications.
  • Context-sensitive help, available by pressing the Help button in dialogs with Help buttons. I've added about 12 new topics.
  • Editor window help, available by placing the cursor in the Editor window and pressing F1. Note that there are context-specific Help pages for most windows, opened in the same manner. Also note that I have added such help for the Navigator window in PHP applications, for the HTML file editor, and for the CSS file editor.
