Description Mike Kaganski 2020-01-10 09:33:38 UTC
There are a lot of keywords in Math (like "sin", "setQ", etc) [1]. But there's no help on them. Some (not all) of them are present in Math elements sidebar, and that's all.

This makes problems when (1) looking for a way to do something where a keyword is needed; and (2) looking why something doesn't work (like in [2], where iser is unaware that "in" is a keyword, and needs to be shielded).

We need a page (or pages, like in Calc?) for all the functions with their keywords in Math.

Seems most have coverage in the Math Guide [1], but agree the Help needs them as well.

Still valid (though last update at 4.4).

I beg to differ, e.g 



Is the issue actually a bookmark for the panel?

(and Help page rendering can improve, I agree).

I stand corrected! Somehow I failed to find the pages :-(
Please just check if everything is covered then; feel free to close INVALID.
Comment 4 Olivier Hallot 2020-01-15 02:06:16 UTC
Help pages id's (hid) for the elements panel exist (inherited from the old Elements window):

STARMATH_HID_SMA_UNBINOPS_TBX in /text/smath/01/03090100.xhp
STARMATH_HID_SMA_RELATIONS_TBX in /text/smath/01/03090200.xhp
STARMATH_HID_SMA_MISC_MENU in /text/smath/01/03091600.xhp

But they are not defined in starmath/inc/helpids.h 

Class is starmath/source/ElementsDockingWindow.cxx
