This tool provides information on a selected command by opening the offline Help documentation to the appropriate page.

How to use

  1. Press the Std WhatsThis.png What's This? button.
  2. Click on a toolbar icon or on a menu entry.

Note: on Debian/Ubuntu and possibly other Linux systems, the FreeCAD documentation is not included in the FreeCAD package and needs to be installed separately. The package may be named freecad-doc or freecad-daily-doc (for the freecad-daily PPA).


Some commands are not documented, in that case the offline help will open on a blank page and report that the page could not be found.
