Just read the advice given to someone who's having probs with their 'help' not working - me tooo. some one wrote this.... "Make sure that you repair permissions on a weekly or biweekly basis to get the best results out of OS X. Also I run disk warrior once a month and my computer never has a single problem." can anyone explain in simple terms.. "repair permissions' ??? also have tried advice about moving other files out of library>documentation.... and help still doesnt work (since I upgraded to panther from jag) ...the window launches - although it appears blank... no welcome to help graphics. I can type in a query then press return but there's no reaction. nada on the little drop down menu next to the magnify glass is... search (null) search all help ???????
