That would help people like me who only have a vague idea of the syntax.

Great! :-D

I downloaded the file and will look at it.
One thing though. When I opened the file I got a security warning saying 
that it did not have a valid digital signature. I gave it permission and 
when the help file opened the RH pane had the message:

   Navigation to the webpage was canceled
    What you can try:
      Retype the address.



The problem went away.

I am using Win 7

I have noticed a couple of things already, such as:

Open, prism goes to the entry above. 3.4.1.10 Parametric
Open, sor goes to 3.4.1.14 Superquadric Ellipsoid.

In fact most of the few sub entries that I have looked at go to the 
entry above in the RH pane.

A bit Irish that. (N.B. the Mc in my surname.)


resize the help window. You lose your place in the RH pane?
