Help System

The following !set variables affect the help system.

HelpDefaultTopic
Value: string.
If this variable is set to an empty string (i.e., as a boolean) the default help window which normally appears when the Help button in the Help Menu is pressed does not appear. The help mode is still set, so help can be obtained in the usual way by pressing buttons or through other actions, only the initial window is suppressed.

Otherwise, this variable can be set to a URL or help system keyword, which will be shown in the initial window when the Help menu button is pressed.

HelpMultiWin
Value: boolean.
This variable, when set, causes the help system to use a new window for each menu item or screen element clicked on in help mode. If not set, the original help window is reused.

The state of this variable tracks the Multi-Window Mode button in the Help Menu.

See also the HelpPath and DocsDir variables in E.3.
