Is there a way I can create a "Show" button that would be
visible to users when they click "Hide" (or X) on the nav bar? The
team I'm working with doesn't think that making users click the
Contents, Search, or Index button to "Show" the navigation pane
would be intuitive enough.
Also, how do I hide the "Show" link in a context-sensitive
help window? Some people are thinking that we need to hide this,
thereby "forcing" them to click the "main" help button in the Help
menu, but I disagree.
I understand the concern but most folks seem to work it out.
If you cick X, you know you have done it and will look for ways
back. That usually involves clicking anything in site! I don't know
of a solution.
How does hiding Show, forcing the user to close that, open
the main help and start over, help them? Yes you are forcing them
but you are not helping them and I agree with you. You can hide
Show by deselecting the show navigation in the wizard but it's a
bad move. With show enabled, they can see the topic they first went
to, its place in the structure and they can navigate from their.
Much more intuitive.
