  1. I remember when I used to press F1, AutoCAD would launch the help files stored locally on my PC. Now I am using a newer version all I get with F1 is the online help. These online help files are no way as good as the old method which used to give concepts, examples and better explanations of the commands and the options or settings for them. For example, when you need an explanation of how a setting value (like 0, 1 or 2) influences a command. I have not found this with the online help, all I ever get is a link to a pdf to search through. So in my last attempt with this pdf, I searched a command and got 25 results, the weird thing is that almost every single instance of the results gave EXACTLY the same answer, but not 1 of them explained what values were available to change. FYI, I searched 'PICKFIRST'. So, my question is this: is there anyway I can get the 'old' help files again or is there anywhere I can get access to better help files? I'm using AutoCAD LT 2011.
