Help not working
« on: October 23, 2012, 12:23:06 pm »
Hello,

I'm new to Scribus and wanted to use the help function inside the program which you should get when you click the question mark icon. But by clicking it no help appears.

Please help. Thanks in advance.

a/ the help files must be installed (and -- by default -- they are not on debian and ubuntu, since they are not 100% free).
b/ the help only works if you have an english GUI (you can change the language on the fly; italian may also work)

Is there a time frame when the German help would be available?

i don't know of anybody who has plans to work on a german translation.

... who knows, maybe creating a really 100% free of the documentation could help in getting people to translate it...

... it may be even be built in a way that it can give help based on the context...

ciao
