To make this happen, do the following:
- remove any code referring to the shortcut Ctrl+F1 in the user-preferences file
- download the maxscript documentation (get it here)
- add the following code to the user-preferences file
# point maxscript to a local helpfile command.name.12.*=Find in local Help command.12.*="blah\folder\firefox.exe" "file:///C:/blah/folder/maxscript-doc-2012/index.html?query= $(CurrentWord)" command.subsystem.12.*=0 command.mode.12.*=savebefore:no command.shortcut.12.*=Ctrl+F1
Obviously you need to edit the filepaths to point to your browser and help-file. When you download the maxscript documentation, you’ll get a few html-files. You need to point at the index.html. This command will actually show up in the tools-menu of the maxscript editor. The command sends the word at the cursor-position to the help-file (Currentword). This command is triggered by the Ctrl+F1 keys. Of course you can add any other key-combination.
