From Colin

  • [Writing Context Sensitive Help (coming in GNOME-3.0)]
  • I guess we should convince pygmee and Kevin to change their manual so that it fits for that purpose, whatever change is necessary.
  • That glossary could be section and subsections of the big manual I'd say.


Mail from Bob Jamison

  • Context-sensitive help is one thing where I think they

are spot-on. How hard would it be for us to provide "F1 Help"? If only to pop up a browser on a given html page and #anchor.

  • kind of 3 levels of needs : instant help (already existing, but not for effects/extensions :( ); than a kind of embedded glossary, and finally a big user manual
  • yup, a short explanation text should be integrated in the inx file or the extension code and then displayed (in a tab for a dialog ?) with the effect... I don't know what would be the best display place for it
  • ok, got another idea, let's start from the Inkscape terminology page. Filling it might help creating some content for an embedded help
