Has anyone else noticed that searching help for more than one-word search phrases will crash Google Chrome every time?

Nope, works fine for me.

Thanks Joe,

I did see that one and that is what I ultimately ended up doing. At least they gave us this work-around in an easy to access spot.

What happened to 2012 Array command? It was so simple to use it in previous versions and now I can't get my head arouund it!!! On path selection it doesn;t allow me to space them out at the distance I want, on rectangular it doesn't give me the option for following a path !!...

That dialog box was much easier to use rather than typing all the data as you go along, let alone the preview possibility that allowed you to rectify before the final result!!


.... And the help menu has totally gone mad... no logical navigation and less information for learning/remembering stuff.


I am so disappointed with this 2012! Crash after crash!!.. Once I just left it open for 2 minutes without touching it and it crashed. Unbelievable!


E.g.. I hit the escape button twice and it crashes .. How's that possible? I have been using 2011 again because of all these issues!!!


Hello!.. Autodesk people! ... You can do better than this!

Just to add that the help system is still messed up. Trying doing a search for "OVERKILL" and there are no results from any book. However, once I'm in the dialog box for overkill, I can click help and it goes to a command reference webpage with it.  Why doesn't the search on the help page find the same thing?  Also, it's set to look in all books and still won't return anything.
