IDE ver 1.8.4 Help Files
« on: June 05, 2018, 11:53:17 am »
The content of the help files virtually in no way match what I see in the IDE.

For example, the help file says this for the tools menu:

6.4.8  The Tools menu

The ”Tools” menu defines some standard tools. If new tools are defined by the user, they are appended to this menu as well.


(F11) Shows the messages window. This window contains the output from one of the tools. For more information, see section 6.10.1, page 259.

Goto next

(Alt-F8) Goes to the next message.

Goto previous

(Alt-F7) Goes to the previous message


(SHIFT-F2) Prompts for a regular expression and options to be given to grep, and then executes
with the given expression and options. For this to work, the
program must be installed on the system, and be in a directory that is in the
. For more information, see section 6.10.2, page 262.


Displays the calculator. For more information, see section 6.10.4, page 267.

Ascii table

Displays the
table. For more information, see section 6.10.3, page 263.

The documentation you mentioned is for Free Pascal.
Thus, that description is for Free Pascal console IDE (based on FreeVision), not for Lazarus.
