Re: Status of Help functionality for GNOME2 components

There is no issue for linking the "help" to multiple documents.
  But in this case applications need to take care to link 
  the "help" menus to different documents. I mean GNOMEUIINFO_HELP
  macro will provide a single menu "Help Contents" which can be 
  linked to one document . If the application has multiple 
  documets , it has to take care (creating multiple menu items)
  to link to many documents.
  something like 

  User Manual
  Quick Refernce Manual 
  For the above case instead of calling GNOMEUIINFO_HELP macro 
  application need to create the above menus and then link 
  individual menus to the respective help documents.
  This will solve the purpose I think.
