I finally got around to downloading the latest alpha, along with this newest
help file-- but I'm seeing a problem with the help file: Although it loads
successfully, the entries in the 'index' list don't produce any results; that
is, they don't 'connect' to the relevant portion of the docs. (That pane of the
help file remains blank.) I also tried this with an earlier alpha release and
got the same results, so it doesn't appear to be a particular alpha-release
problem.

As a last resort, I *removed* the original 3.7.0 help file from the 'Help'
folder (to see if the two files were interfering somehow), but that didn't fix
it.

I *could* be doing something wrong on my end-- that's always a possibility, ha--
 but I don't think so.
