Creating Customized Help Menus

Customized help menus that reflect local modeling practice and are accessed by clicking the ? button on the Link Attributes or Profile View menus are easy to create. Simply edit the associated help file in a text editor.

The help files are stored in the help/ subdirectory of your installation directory. It should be obvious which files are associated with each help button: for example, lanes.hlp is the file displayed when the help for Lanes is selected.

Tip: When a help file is displayed, the 2.11 Toolbox will not attempt to wrap long lines or perform any other text formatting. Therefore, when editing a file, it is important to consider how it will appear on the user's display.
