Where are docs for Ideas? I'm sure it's obvious to you, but I can't make heads or tails of this thing. Is there a tutorial? A video? A PDF?

    Hi John,
    We’ve got a small manual in the latest update to Ideas (just published yesterday).

    We’ve also got some videos on YouTube showing some of the basic features:

    It’s the “Help” menu of Ideas, just make sure you update to the latest version.

    Ah. Perhaps a more descriptive menu is in order, like “Docs”, or “Product Overview”….

    Apple style guide pretty much enforce the use of the “Help” menu, same as “File” and “Edit”, I personally disagree with that style guide (why have a File menu if your application isn’t dealing with files?”, but there you go...

    I meant the “Help preview” menu item. It’s not very descriptive.

    Sorry, I don’t understand what you mean by “Help preview”.

    Right now, in the Help menu in the menu bar, there’s a menu item called "Preview Help”. This is what brings up the docs. My point was that this is not a very helpful description, and that perhaps a better name could be found, like “Docs”, or “Product Overview”….

    Ah right, that’s because the docs are a PDF and they get opened up in Preview.
