The main thing I miss is the speed. On my Vista system with IE8 it seems to come up slower than the chm based help.

Has anyone tried it with a text-based browser such as lynx to see if it runs faster that way? Is there an option to specify which browser to use for help? mailing list Received on Sun 01 Nov 2009 - 23:07:18 GMT
