    Sometimes I use CubicIDE for Hollywood or C code but recently I see that the inline help starts to fail.
    If I press f1 under a command I can see the relative info command in multiview but if I try again nothing happends.

    LogTool starts to show hits
    (1434.011| PROXY: OPEN NAME="hollywood:Help/hollywood.guide" AGNODE="hollywood:Help/hollywood.guide/atDISPLAY") and I have to restart CubicIDE.

    It fails with Hollywood and C plugin.
    I tried in an old powerbook with morphos 3.14 and it works correctly. Seems that this only fails in morphOS systems.

    Any hint how can I narrow down the problem?

    You might try to replace mossys:libs/amigaguide.library by the one used in MorphOS 3.14.
    AFAICT, there have been no changes to amigaguide.library since 3.14, though.

    There was no luck. Will try other options. Arexx library perhaps? Is there a way to boot with a minimal startup-sequence or without it in MorphOS?

    Well, if you have some proper log with hits, it might indicate some more info. You can send it to our bugtracker db via the About MorphOS/Support Tab/Report Bug button.

    I didn't use CubicIDE for quite some time, actually I never really used it, so I can't tell if that issue could have been introduced inbetween 3.14 to 3.15. AREXX doesn't really sound likely but you could simple replace rexxsyslib.library & others one by one ...

    I can catch de debug log but not sure if I have to check all options in logtool or need something more accurate.
    Thanks for the help. Will try to narrow down this.

    Meanwhile, as a side note, when the inline help is used a task is created ( golded(guide) ) y a state of WAIT(4).
    If I Ctrl-C it I can use inle help again without exiting cubicide.
    Will prepare a log with all DOS settings in logtool turned On.

    It seems that the log got cut off at some point, you really don't need to enable all DOS settings, this is way too much debug. If there are real hits that indicate some crash, you don't need to add extra debug options anyway.

    Edit the golded:add-ons/hollywood/rexx/word-help-guide.rexx
    and change lines
    Code:
    'HELP CATALOG="hollywood:Help/hollywood.guide" TOPIC="Main"'
    'HELP CATALOG="hollywood:Help/hollywood.guide" TOPIC="' || WORD || '"'

    to:
    Code:
    'HELP STOP CATALOG="hollywood:Help/hollywood.guide" TOPIC="Main"'
    'HELP STOP CATALOG="hollywood:Help/hollywood.guide" TOPIC="' || WORD || '"'

    It works for me.

    Oh man, that works!
    I have had to change that in various toolbars settings cos all of them had the same problem.
    Its strange. Those rexx scripts have been working for years.

    Thanks Frank! Thanks ghh!
