Remove a Help File from Your Help Database

  

Remove help files from a user-created help database.

  

Note that it is not permitted to delete help files from the shipped Maple help databases. See About Help Databases in Maple.

1. 

From the Tools menu, select Help Database, and then Remove Topic. A dialog with Database and Item  information opens.

2. 

In the Enter or Select a Writable Database combination box, type in or select the filename of the help database that contains the help file to remove.

  

Help database directories only appear in the Select Writable Database box if they have been declared in a libname command during the current Maple session, and if they already contain a writable .help file.

3. 

In the Select an Item to Remove dropdown box, select the topic of the item to be removed.

4. 

Click Remove to remove the file from the help database. Note that this cannot be undone.
