Re: Wiki help retiring – Making way for fresh new look

When I'm in Inventor 2013 Pro and hit F1 I still go to WikiHelp? Do I need to do anything to get to the new help site?

Hello!

The new help site is not yet aviailable - We expect it to go live in October. Please stay tuned!

 

We will send out an announcement when it is Live!

 

We apologize for the issues with the current state of the wiki.

 

Thank you,

One more note: When the new site is live, you will be directed to the new site from within Inventor. There is nothing you need to configure.

 

Please let me know of any other questions.

 

Thank you,

Jeanie

Come on Autodesk - what do we do NO WIKI-HELP, NO AUTO-REROUTE to the new help

 

How about you just issue a hotfix so were all singing from The same hymn sheet.

Thank you for your post and we apologize for this inconvience. We are doing everything we can to resolve the issues with the wiki AND we are also working to have the  learning enviroment LIVE as soon as possible.

 

We encourage you to download the local help and set the local help as your default until we have transitioned to the new learning environment. As soon as the new learning environment is live, we will make an Announcement.

 

You can download the help for Local use here:

 

R2014 http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=16463987

R2013 http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/item?siteID=123112&id=21310054

R2012 http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/item?siteID=123112&id=18715627

 

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

C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor 2014\Bin:

 

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

 

Again, we sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

Please let me know of any questions/concerns,

Thank you,

Jeanie Wayker

"...  improved performance and search options, along with a fresh new look."

 

Dear Autodesk,

 

This applies to all of your software, interfaces, and web sites:  Skip the "fresh new look" part.  Entirely.  We don't care about the look.  Seriously, we don't.  Make it work better.

 

Thanks,

Dedicated users everywhere

I couldn't agree more.

 

Looks are ALWAYS secondary to performance.

Not exactly.  The "look" is always important when you are using a graphical user interface.  If the look is garbage, then the UI is garbage, which makes it difficult to work.  For example if a work process involves clicking three buttons, and they are at the top of screen, bottom of screen, and on a floating palette, the look certainly impacts performance.  Same thing with a help system - how difficult will it be to find things if there is no table of contents?

Personally I'll take something that is harder to find or navigateover something that flat out doesn't work anyday.
