For example:

Screen Colour(n) shown in the "Instant" help as:

Screen Colour n

Omitting the parentheses in the example could be quite confusing!
This particular example could be even more confusing, because a * appears in the example>
(See screen snapshot.)

ALL of the functions for the "Instant" help need to be corrected to include the parentheses!

  • Status changed from New to In Progress

The specific example I gave has been fixed in the F5 help, but it still is an issue for the F6 help.
We need to check all of the functions to verify that they're correct in both help systems.

QUESTION: Why do we have different data for both?

It seems like we should be able to create a single set of help files that will work with both help methods, so we don't have to change it in two different places.
