I cross posted this because IMO it belongs on both lists.

Vern,

you mean there is no context-sensitive help - I can't press F1 on an opcode,
for example, and have the help open up to that part of the documentation?  I
just tried it on my home pc install of WSDc and it doesn't work, and the
links in CODEEDIT under ILE RPG Help don't work either.

The help included with WDTS 5.1 is a major selling point.  It's the single
best 'PRO' I have found to get people (my coworkers) to migrate away from
seu!  I talk it up every chance I get at work.  I've been working hard to
get it installed on programmer's PC's (a bureaucratic hassle to say the
least), I help them get set up, give them Jon Paris's quick start guide,
yada yada yada.  Then an upgrade comes out that takes things away!

I've been working with WSDc casually at home to learn it.  The other day I
worked from home and found it to be much quicker to use CODE and CPO then
RSE.  I'm hoping it's because I haven't used it enough yet. (I didn't need
help, though, so didn't come across that problem.)

This is very frustrating - it's like 1 step forward and 2 steps back.  It's
no wonder seu has stood the test of time.  There are only a handful of
people willing to spend more time configuring their pc software than
coding - everyone else is using seu and leaving the building by 5pm!

I really, really hope there is simply something I have to configure.

Phil
