Online Wikihelp Sucks

654 Views, 10 Replies
09-24-2013 07:46 AM

I'm so tired of clicking the "?" Help buttons only to have it go to a page cannot be loaded page or website must be down page. It's soo frustrating when you are trying to learn something new. Really just venting but it's also costing me money with time.

There are other posts on this, but I tend to agree.

Things to know:
-You can download the help to your local machine and not have to deal with it online, period.
-They're apparently replacing the wiki sites with something new sometime soon.

Search this forum for threads on wiki help... you'll be overwhelmed.  There are some that give you the link to download the help files until AD gets the new system up and running.  Looking at an October-ish time frame.

 

EDIT:

 

Read this one, it was about 4 posts under yours.

btw... duplicating posts just makes things messy, always try a search first.

Ok - sorry !

 

I'm just working on an internal  teaching documentation for inventor 2014 update at our site and it worked really good using wikiHelp, but unfortunately only for a while.

i know how to download the help and we use it too, but in wikihelp there are some really good video(streams ?) i didnt find in the local help (such as using the new Controll Splines)

Please think of these videos - is there a possibility to download them ?

 

Thank you

You may be able to find them on YouTube... there are tons of Autodesk tutorial videos out there, some made by Autodesk, and a lot made by users like us.  Very helpful stuff.

Here is how you can install the local version of the help.

http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?id=16463987&siteID=123112

Edit the XML file in notepad, some editors had caused errors when editing it in another program.

Or Autodesk could just put the old wiki back up until they are actually ready to make the switch. :smileymad:
