Can I configure links from context help to open in Help Browser? [message #613226] Wed, 07 May 2008 11:16

I have the following issue with help system.

When using Eclipse 3.2.x, when the user press F1 for a Wizard the help
system opens context help content in a "docked" help view. The context
help contains links to further explanations. If the user presses a link to
open a topic I have seen two behaviors:

(1) the link opens in the Help Browser with navigation tree on the left
and search box etc.
(2) the link opens in same narrow "docked" help view.

I have see this behavior both in different versions of Eclipse 3.2.x and
3.3.x Respectively reusing the same plugins the behavior is transfered to
my application also. In 3.2.x the links were opened in Help Browser but in are opened in save docked view.
I am not sure what is causing it, probably some setting of some of the
help plugins. You can see this in eclipse File->Export (press F1, follow a
link of a topic). Probably different users will report different behavior
based on the plugins they have.

I want always the links to open in help browser (1) window as the content
of the help does not appear well and is not designed for narrow window

How can I control this? Where are defined the settings of the help system?
