I’ve been doing a series of blog posts on the Adobe Community Help Client (CHC) since it’s been really one of the highlights of the ColdFusion Builder Beta 3 release.
In this post, I’ll focus on the Community Help Client preferences – something that I’ve figured that many people have not yet explored. The CHC provides you with many preferences to control how the Help content is displayed.
Within the CHC, select Edit > Preferences, and you can set the following preferences, as required.
- You can select a light or dark theme for the CHC. For example, when you apply a dark theme, the CHC has a dark background and theme-specific fonts.
- The CHC is launched as an AIR application, by default. You can, however, choose to launch the CHC in your web browser by selecting Open Help In Browser.
- You can specify your download preferences by selecting the products and Help packages that you want to have available for offline use. If the downloaded Help packages are up-to-date, the status shows as “current”.
- CHC provides content updates and feature enhancements without reinstalling the AIR application. Select Notify Me When Updates Are Available to be prompted for new updates when you either open or close the CHC. You can also choose to manually search and install updates.
