Online and Local Help

Access help topics online or from your local installation.

  1. To access the online help, press the F1 key or select File > Help.
    The online help home page or topic page opens from the Altair-hosted website.
    Note: Online help requires internet access. If you do not have internet access, the help pages open from the local installation. The topics are generally the same in both the local and online help, but the online help may include updates between releases.
  2. To set your help to open from the local installation, select File > Preferences. From the Preferences dialog, Workspace category > Help, deactivate the Use online help option.
