Description Jiri Kovalsky 2012-02-24 15:51:20 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE 7.1.1 RC1 (Build 201202141941)
Java: 1.7.0_03; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 22.1-b02
System: Linux version 3.0.0-16-generic running on amd64; UTF-8; cs_CZ (nb)
User directory: /home/cesilko/.netbeans/7.1.1rc1
Cache directory: /home/cesilko/.netbeans/7.1.1rc1/var/cache

System help in NetBeans 7.1.1 is not context sensitive for "Apply Diff Patch..." dialog. The Help window gets opened but it does not display desired content user needs help with.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install full distribution of NetBeans IDE 7.1.1 RC build #201202141941.
2. Invoke "Tools > Apply Diff Patch..." from main menu.
3. Press "Help" button.
4. Help window will get opened but the content panel will show default "This
window contains the master set of all installed documentation..." message or
previously displayed help page.

csh topic created, review and help id required, who can I ask for that?
Comment 3 Jeffrey Rubinoff 2012-03-06 13:50:07 UTC
Alyona, if there is a working Help button in the dialog, an id must already exist. I tested it and it appears to be org.netbeans.modules.diff.PatchAction.

Thank you, Jeff!
