Description

Up to version 5.7, Eraser's help file was a simple but decent HLP file. Then the decision was made to switch to the newer CHM format, a good decision. Windows Vista can't even display HLP files unless you install a special update from Microsoft. Today, a CHM file is a much better choice. Unfortunately, the result of the transition was not pretty. Now it's high time that Eraser gets a help file with a decent design. Preferably a really good design. The current help file has a dull and ugly layout and the choice of fonts and font styles is absolutely horrible.

Yes, we need a dedicated documentation team. I think we'll assemble one soon.

We still don't have any documentation work going. The Help menu item is a no-op.
