Problem with help descriptions.

On the RS4 menu is the Help launcher. When I do, it loads MSDN help and I can't find any references in index for RS. Have I lost RS' help somehow?

I'd like to learn about some of the 'advanced' features of RS and what some of the options do in the configuration dialog, such as smart templates, profiles, that sort of thing. If I simply F1 while in that dialog nothing happens. Any ideas?

EDIT: Let me qualify that. F1 launches the VS.Net 2008 help only.

Hello Peter,

EAP versions often do not include help, because it is not ready yet.

Ilya,

RS contains some advanced features that are not always easy to understand when you look at them for the first time. Are there any online tutorials available? For example, creating a code template. Sometimes online help is a good source of reference but there are times when a practical example is better understood if there is worked example.

As they say: I read and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand.

Hello,

and I can't find any references in index for RS. Have I lost RS' help
somehow?


Currently, help integration into MSDN 9 is not available. You can see the
integrated help if you install R# for VS "2005" 8.0, or, in any version,
the help files could be viewed standalone, running dexplore.exe without opening
MSDN.
