Hi,

I'd like to know what kind of contents would You like to see in Help Tool? This information will be very useful during my work. Thank a lot for your suggestions. Of course, time is ticking away and I don't know how much I'm going to do.

Best regards - Michal

Hi,

Michał: I've got a question.
Will this be something like KDE Help Center (central help system, everything in one place)?

Hi Michal,

I think something like the contents of the FirstRun document with images/(partial) screenshots would be good candidate:

I hope there is no major technical difficulty left. Please consider to start committing code to the incubator CVS!

In addition to increasing the amount of contents, how about considering ways to enhance the usability of the help possibly by leveraging the 3D-ness? Could you think of any good idea of help contents arrangement, etc?

I'll do my best. How about putting some other informations which are spread over WIKI or on the LG3D home page?
