In-app help in the works


A big thank you to everyone who sent along your words of encouragement!  I really appreciate the support.   Based on your feedback, I’m putting the manual on the back burner and focusing on an in-app help feature.  The good news is that I have been working like crazy to get the documentation together and should be done faster than I originally expected.

How will it work?  Currently, the concept is to have the help accessible by pressing and holding (for a second or two) the key for which you want help.  At that time, a help screen will scroll in with a HTML help page for that key.  Related keys will be hyper linked.  It will be interesting to see if this will suffice for all projects.  Knowing that this concept will require some code, I’ll likely be firing up xCode this weekend.
