Context help by CTRL-Click on Menu items or icons


#1

Just an idea.

Similar to Modo’s ‘Activate Help’ - just click and help would open to the area. With Rhino’s instantly updating help it feels very slow? Don’t know how to express it… Just a CTRL click or even tooltip (with switch activate settings) would be very fast to explore the UI even for lazy newbies

Hi Hannes - I am a fan of context help, myself - we began experimenting with it in a small way, currently only in Options > Toolbar> Tools menu > Workspace editor…" with little “?” buttons here and there with brief hints. I like this, as far as it goes - obviously there are fancier ways to access the tips, as you suggest, but I quite like the “?” for discoverability’s sake.
