Problem Description

The documentation I see in the Integrated Help window does not agree with what I see in the Settings window for a particular feature.


We are aware of this and are working on a fix. The reason this happens is conflicting licenses which, for example, makes the documentation from the RF Module appear even though you are looking at a feature from the Wave Optics Module. The documentation is not missing though, it is just not shown correctly in the Integrated Help. There are two ways to find the wanted information:

  1. Open up the Preferences dialog and go to the General page. Change the Help mode setting to Web Browser instead of Integrated help. This will give the right HTML version of the documentation.
  2. Use the pdf documentation.
