Soft menu in the Help system?

Post by H2X » Thu Feb 22, 2018 11:23 am

I finally came around to updating the OS of my beta unit to the latest version (3.3), and installing the help file.

Now that I have, I see that two of the soft keys have a special function when viewing the help file, as described in the Navigation section:
  • Press EXIT of F1 to exit
  • Press F2 to jump to Contents
Why not take this further? I'd like to see ways to jump back and forth from one top-level topic (the entries under Contents) to another, and perhaps also between sub-topics under the top-level topics. There are 4 soft keys currently idle when in the help system... And I wouldn't mind seeing soft key labels when the help system is active.

I'd also like to see a way to jump back in the "history" of links navigated by selecting a link and pressing ENTER.
