Hi,

I have AD 1.6.1 on MacOS Mojave 10.14.3, and when I tried looking up Help on transforming (as I need the one thing missing in the default shapes, a parallelogram) I got.. well, nothing.

Is this me or is there something broken here?  Is this not-help stored locally or does it have to be pulled in from the Net (in which case it isn't)? 

First I used the pulldown menu, and I drew a blank after selection of the topic that appeared viable to me.  Next I re-entered the search term in that window I got and got something which after a mouse click led me to ..

.. nothing again.

Don't get me wrong, I like the minimalism 9_9 but it's just a tad unhelpful.  I also have AD beta 1.7.0.4 installed which DID give me an answer after some prodding (screenshot added), so I'm guessing that's what I'll have to use for the moment.  Bug, feature or me?

(BTW, not to worry about the parallelogram, that turned out to be as stupidly easy as I was suspecting - no need for transformations :))

Cheers, Binc
