Fixed in 10.0.
Works correctly since Mathematica 10.0.
The Mathematica help menu contains an entry Find Selected Function (Cmd+Shift+F on OSX).
If you are working with say
Transpose and want to look up its reference page, you just select
Transpose with the mouse, hit Cmd+Shift+F and Mathematica opens the reference page for
Transpose. Works beautifully.
Question: How to get this to work for your own packages?
So, suppose your package is correctly built, and it has its own functions:
MySuperFunc FunkyMonkey FunkMeister2
and the documentation pages are correctly created, correctly defined and correctly installed for each of those functions. You select
MySuperFunc with the mouse, select Find Selected Function, expecting Mathematica to open the reference page for that function but it doesn't work.
Instead, Mathematica opens up something akin to a Google search on "MySuperFunc", providing a list to anything it can find on that name. But that's not what I want. And it's also not what that menu function is supposed to be doing: Find SELECTED Function! Not a google-type search. Just open the reference page for the selected Function.
Anyone have some tips on how to make this work as advertised?
Addendum: If one enters:
... you get the usual Help blurb on the function, such as:
MySuperFunc[b] returns blah given b. >>
... and if you then click on those two little
>> arrows, Mathematica opens the Help Reference page for
MySuperFunc PERFECTLY, which is exactly what FindSelectedFunction should be doing, but is not doing. And if it works perfectly for the
>> info blurb, why can't it work just as perfectly for FindSelectedFunction?
