Rick Brewster Posted April 10, 2007 Share Posted April 10, 2007 The Help file in Paint.NET is accessible by going to the Help menu and clicking on the first item labelled "Help Topics": Anyway, I want to know how often anybody even reads this thing! The reason I want to know is that for the next release I am strongly considering moving the help file online. It is already available online (http://www.getpaint.net/doc/3.05 for instance), but this change would simply remove the local copy. Doing this reduces the download size from 4.5 MB down to less than 1.2 MB. This means faster downloads, faster update speed, and less bandwidth for myself and anyone mirroring the software. It also enables me to provide a "Search:" text box, as I can just use the services provided by Google or Windows Live Search to let you search the online help file. The cons are that you must be online to read the help file. My hypothesis is that most people do not use the help file, or they do not use it very much. Therefore, why force everyone to download it? So tell me what you think about all this.
