I see no issue here, except we should of used the term punctuation on a path.... a very flat and invisible path... O.o

But in all honesty, a good find.  So i take it this is Designer/Publisher on Windows?  I won't be able to confirm anything till Monday when i'm back with my Windows machine but will raise it with the Docs team :)

It is indeed Designer on Windows. Clicking on it takes me to a topic (I forget what the topic was and am at work right now) so I think you just need to add a title ('How To Do Five Question Marks In A Line' might work).

Six, actually! ;)

The Help in my AD on Windows installation (version 1.6.5.123) looks different. Instead of ‘Tools’ and ‘Panels’ appearing at the top level of the index, they’re nested under ‘Workspace’ alongside ‘More’ and ‘Customize’. I couldn’t see where that row of question marks is lurking.

Do you have an option for Text down the left?  Thats where it is on my Mac.  

Having said that from the screenshot @Phil_rose doesn't show anything on the left as selected, as i would expect.. Can you just confirm which version of Designer you are running @Phil_rose

Sorry this is not the right help for Designer. It has Tables! I think it is the Publisher help and it is not finished. It is identical to my Windows Publisher help which has ????? as a reminder to the documentation team to do more typing!

Yes, I do, but clicking on it just expands/collapses the tree. The right-hand pane displays the selected topic, rather than a list like the one in Phil’s screenshot.

Thanks Patrick.  On Mac, you have the Text option down the left, click that to expand the menu, get the heading Text Styles and it take you to text styles. So does seem to function correctly on the Mac. But as you say, the help is a work in progress so i'd expect some difference at this early stage of the Beta.

Damn it, It IS Publisher. I'm an idiot! Sorry to send everyone into a flurry! I was only initially adding it as I thought it was funny!

I found it funny, so if you find anymore just post them :) It's always nice to see these glitches and means we can get them resolved for final release :)

I just didn't want to get on anyone's ass about what I know is a beta! It's looking REALLY good, by the way.
