Why not embedded HELP document in bts Client????
« on: January 12, 2015, 05:21:46 pm »
F1 shortcut----HELP document
first startup -----wizard mode to introduce  main fuction usage method& Advantage

when  the newbee don't know  how to do next step  a assistant can Prompt the user how to operate

Usability has been a cornerstone of the software.

Sounds like an opportunity for a paid delegate

Yes, I think this is a very much needed feature, not necessarily a separate documentation, but I like my software to show me a detailed explanation tooltip on everything (with a setting to turn it off once I'm familiar with the software).

I love tooltips which I call "hover help". A massively under utilized and little thought of UI feature.

 :o  We can do that in the early future . check out the works that we've done so far on www.aboutbts.com   .

But ...... I think the point of the OP is "why not there" to begin with .

hmm..........into deep thinking mood ......

The reason is simple, developer bandwidth. If you submit a pull request we will merge it. If you have a suggestion for reallocating developer resources we will consider it.
