Help in YAAC
YAAC's built-in online documentation is bundled into the YAAC
installation, so no Internet access is required to read help.
The Help menu provides six functions:
- Help->About YAAC... describes the release and build of YAAC you
are using, and credits the appropriate authors. It also displays the console
debug log of YAAC, and provides a way to copy the log for pasting into e-mailed
bug reports to the author.
- Help->Release Notes displays the release notes for all the recent
builds of YAAC, so you can see what changed. This is downloaded from the YAAC author's website, so
is only functional when YAAC is used on the Internet.
- Help->Contents provides access to the online
documentation, searchable by table of contents (default), index, or full-text
- Help->Index provides access to the online
documentation, searchable by table of contents, index (default), or full-text
- Help->Check for Updates queries the YAAC website to see if
a new build of YAAC has been released, and, if so, provides the
option to download and install the upgrade.
If you choose "Yes", YAAC will display a progress dialog as it downloads the new
distribution, then it will display another dialog asking if you want to install
the upgrade now. Note that upgrading YAAC requires stopping YAAC, as some operating systems (such
as Microsoft Windows) prohibit altering files that are currently being used to execute
a program. The upgrader does allow restarting YAAC once the upgrade is finished.
- Help->Install Plugins queries the YAAC website to see what officially supported
plugins are available versus which plugins are currently installed. If new plugins are
available or currently-installed plugins have a newer version available, you will be
given the option to download and install these plugins, should you desire their
