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

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….
