Can F1 jump to the tool help again?

I used to love being able to press F1 to get help immediately on the tool - can this be added back on now we have online help or is it technically not possible?

I don't think we ever took this out.  Works for me here on my 10.0 release.  

 

Maybe I am misunderstanding...

Doesn't work for me in v10 - via Chrome.

It appears this is a Chrome Windows 10 bug

From what I can see they fixed it September 1st, but not sure when that means it makes it to an update.

 

Check if your Chrome is the lastest version.  If it is I guess you may just have to wait for Chrome to get patched.

Hi Chris,

 

If you don't want to change your browser, you also have the option to set Alteryx to point to the offline help.

 

Go to: Options > User Settings > Edit User Settings > Advanced > Help Source tab.

 

Change Help Source to "Offline."

 

Once you do that, you should see the functionality return.

 

Nice find!

Chris,

I just wanted to confirm...I'm using the latest Chrome (Version 45.0.2454.93 m) and the F1 key does bring me to Alteryx online help.

So don't want to make this 'personal', but...  ;-)
