I thought of this as I wrote documentation for the E-mail Support plug-in. (The only way you’ll ever see it is if you hold ⌥ when clicking the list of installed plug-ins.)
For those plug-ins that supply a pref pane, there should be a Help button above or below the pref pane’s view that opens the documentation for the plug-in that provides the prefs.
That would provide a more obvious way to reach documentation for a hidden plug-in (if it has prefs), and would also provide quick answers for users looking at the prefs and wondering “What does this setting do?”
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
I agree with this feature request. This help button should have the same shortcut as the one in the plugins preferences (I think ⌘⌥?).
If we want to be really fancy, we could define a dedicated preferences section in the help file and automatically scroll to that if called from the plugin's pref pane.
I think there should be a ? help button next to the i button on the plugin preference pane. Now that the help is useful, it's a pain to have to open the sidebar to get to the ? button. Also, since I'm already mousing to select the plugin and probably mousing to move (or at least close) the popup help window, I'd rather not have to move back to the keyboard to use ⌥⌘? to bring up help, clicking a button is easier.
