Help file switching language does not display

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums, wlpha.

The Help displays in the language you've chosen for the UI of the main application.

I have always assumed (dangerous, I know) that that was intentional, and that the language changer should not appear when you invoke Help via F1 or the Help menu. As invoking it directly via the file system is not the intended method of getting help, it will be interesting to say what the Serif staff have to say about this :)

Hi wlpha,

As Walt has said, changing the in-app Help can only be done by changing the language setting from Preferences. Opening the .html file will allow you to switch languages and you will have access to printing and copying.

We've left out some of those buttons from the in-app Help on purpose.
