User Defined Help

Besides this static teTEX/TeX Live documentation, Kile also supports a more flexible variable way for help documents. In the Help menu Kile has a special User help submenu, where the user can add documents of his or her own choice. These can be the most important documents of the teTEX/TeX Live documentation, or even self-written documents. It is also possible to enter URLs.

Go to SettingsConfigure Kile...Kile+Help and choose the Configure button to configure this User help menu. You can add, remove or move menu entries around, and insert separators to optimize the structure of the menu.

Dialog: configure user defined help entries

Pressing the Add button will open another dialog, where you can edit the name of the menu entry, and choose the corresponding file or URL. The second button to the right of the text field launches Konqueror, which can be used to determine the correct URL.

Dialog: add a new helpentry

After finishing the configuration, all the entries will appear in the Help menu of Kile as a special menu entry User help.
