    dont know if this was reported before...
    will the help key be back? i mean in max4 you pressed help after selecting an object and the help-patch of that object popped up
    somehow in max5 it's not working now it seems to be shift-apple-h which i have to do with two hands

      I bet most people just option-click on an object to open the help file. I've never used the help key.

      The help key will work again in our next update. So you won't have to feel help-less and alone any more!

      YAY, force of habit prevails! I don't think people understand that you can alt+leftclick any object and get help for that object. I am not sure if it works the same way on the Mac.
      But this is a slightly more complicated way. When you select the object and type in a object name, your hands are already on they keyboard. Selecting F1 is very easy. Having to move your hands to the mouse to alt+leftclick delays my access to help by 2 seconds! Most annoying....
