Thank you for your patience as we transition from the Autodesk Wiki online Help pages to a new online Help environment. In this new environment you should enjoy improved performance and search options, along with a fresh new look.

 

Once the new learning environment is online, you will be redirected to it automatically when you access the Help from within your Autodesk product.

 

We are excited to bring this new learning environment to you and we look forward to your participation and comments. Stay tuned for our announcement when the new environment goes live.

 

Thanks and Regards,

The Mechanical Design Learning Experience team

Online help is great EXCEPT for us folks who spend a lot of time in the field working on laptops with no access to the internet.

After installing, If you always want to access the local help from within Inventor, you can modify the helpids.xml file located at:

Change the default value  - UseOnline="1" - to - UseOnline="0"

The value '1'  - This will always launch the online help by default

The value '0' - This will always launch the local help by default

 

Please let me know of any questions/concerns,

Thank you,

We are experiencing some performance issues on the site due to extremely high traffic and content volume and are working on some infrastructure upgrades to handle the situation. We hope to return the site to high performance soon. We appreciate your feedback.

 

The new online environment should address these issues.

 

Thank you, and again I am sorry these problems are occuring.

Why is there no way to download the tutorials (not the data set -- the actual tutorial text)?

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the "downloadable" help needs to be the "installed with Inventor" help.
