The Help menu is quite simple.
The Help menu connects users to this manual, to the list of functions available for use in Gnumeric and to the list of people who created this wonderful application.
These menu items allow the user to obtain help from several sources or to report a problem with the program.
Contents — This menu entry allows the user to launch the local help system and display this manual.
Gnumeric on the Web — This menu entry allows the user to launch a web browser and explore the web site dedicated to Gnumeric on the server used by the GNOME project.
Live Assistance — This menu entry allows the user to launch an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client to join the GIMPnet network and the #Gnumeric channel. This channel is used by the Gnumeric developers. There is generally someone around who will, after a few minutes, notice a nice question and attempt to answer it.
Live assistance is provided on a purely voluntary basis. There are no guarantees that your question will be answered or that the answer will be correct. We generally try our best to answer questions when they are asked politely and when the user shows that they have at least looked in the User Manual for an answer.
Report a Problem — This menu entry allows the user to launch a web browser and open the page on GNOME's Bugzilla bug entry system for the Gnumeric program. This page includes instructions on submitting reports of problems. The first time a user reports a problem, they will be asked to login to the system.
About —Shows basic information about Gnumeric, such as the authors' names and the application version number.
