Just curious about this: the help file that can be accessed through the circle-? has (apparently) the same content as the one in the resource in my shortcut bar (see the two boxes in the screenshot). But it behaves differently. The resource-ish one has a table of contents, while the circle-? one does not.

I'd like to get rid of the one in my shortcut bar, as there's never enough space there, but like the functionality better.

Any chance the one that pops up through the circle-? can be made into the full resource?

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

When we first made Help available as a full resource, not just in the sidebar (v6.1), we wanted to get rid of the sidebar and make F1 open the full resource (which I think is what you're asking for). There wasn't enough time to get that feature in 6.1, but it's still scheduled for a future release. I've added a link to this thread to the case.

This has been removed in 6.5 Beta 1.

Removed Help panel since the updated Help file is available and best viewed as a Logos resource. All prior shortcuts and history items should open the Help resource from now on.
