MS really really really want you to use their on-line help in Office 2007. Even though its slow and rubbish.
They are watching where we go, so don’t be surprised to see an even bigger deterioration in help in future Offices as they misapply their new skewed data.
Anyway, maybe you want to use the help that got installed with your applications, like I do. I finally found out how to:
Click help, then down at the botton there is one of their classic user interface blunders – a button cunningly disguised as a statusbar ‘information only’ panel. Click this apparently unclickable panel and it drops down to allow you to select to use offline content only.
Yay people with intermittent internet connections rejoice.
(Isn’t this effluent UI discoverable!)
