There are two types of Help currently: Documentation and Tutorial.

==General Thoughts==

  • Both should be available off line, online, and as part of the GUI application
  • Above means that sphinx should build a PDF as well HTML output #510
  • Re-order Menu list to move Analysis next to the perspective menu item it has chosen (currently only Fitting has a separate menu) #515
  • Rename Tool to Tools #515


  • Model parameter names convention seems wrong?
  • how do we deal with changing screen shoots?


  • Should redo completely around example data in SasView
  • Tutorials for each topic that can then be bundled together if desired


  • General help documentation
    • Remove all reference to term perspective which confuses users — replace with "Analysis" or other appropriate wording. #513
    • Add a help topic on menu items (go through menu list) #512
    • restructure tree to #511
      • collapse tool help under a top level Tools entry
      • collapse Fitting, Pr an invariant into an Analysis heading
    • All of it should then be reviewed to verify for readability and that it matches the actual functionality (does pressing the button do what it says) #514
  • Model help documentation #19
    • review for all models for
      • Clarity
      • That units on parameters are correct and properly formatted
      • That Equation matches what the code does
      • Completeness - elements of documentation are:
        • title
        • tool tip
        • Parameter table
        • Paragraph describing what the function does
        • equation used
        • Fig obtained when model is run with default parameters as listed in table above
        • Reference
          • Added by: name, ON: date
          • checked by: name, ON: date
          • Can us name such as "DANSE" if old models with no name of who added, or source if imported from other package, etc.
