The tab content should be context sensitive, and show WYSIWYG help with that edit mode.

Which one is the WYSIWYG help?

-- MichaelDaum - 30 Oct 2012

edit.tmpl has this:
%TMPL:DEF{"help"}%
<div class='foswikiMakeVisible'>%INCLUDE{"%SYSTEMWEB%.%IF{"defined 'EDITOR_HELP'" then="%EDITOR_HELP%" else="WikiSyntaxSummary"}%"}%</div>
%TMPL:END%

-- ArthurClemens - 30 Oct 2012

Where is EDITOR_HELP set? Does it switch to something wysiwyg related automatically?

Btw, NatEditPlugin does this

%TMPL:DEF{"helptab"}%%TAB{"%MAKETEXT{"Help"}%" 
  id="help"
  url="%SCRIPTURL{"view"}%/%IF{"defined NATEDIT_HELPTEXT" then="%NATEDIT_HELPTEXT%" else="%SYSTEMWEB%.NatEditHelpText"}%?skin=text;section=default"
  container=".natEditHelp"
}%%TMPL:P{"edithelp"}%%ENDTAB%%TMPL:END%

So it will load a page from NATEDIT_HELPTEXT being a full web.topic name if defined or use System.NatEditHelpText by default which then %INCLUDEs EditingShorthands ... which I find more helpful than WikiSyntaxSummary, a very sparse help page.

Given that we've switched to NatEditPlugin by default, setting this to No Action ... Nope, Arthur is right. The Help panel for NatEditPlugin shows the TML related help even when running the Wysiwyg editor. Entering TML into the Wysiwyg / TinyMCE editor probably won't get the user what they want. Probably better to just suppress the help text when Wysiwyg is active.

But what if they switch to "Wiki Text"?

-- MichaelDaum - 07 Jan 2015

Good point. So maybe the help panel just needs a bit of info at the top describing the TMCE editor, And still include the TML. We often see users type TML into the Wysiwyg editor, which often doesn't work. Set statements frequently get messed up that way for the new user.
