This is currently not possible. The technical infrastructure of KDE is not providing an *easy* way to do that.

A very work- and maintenance intensive way would be to put help:/kdeprint/somepage.html#an-anchor-in-the-page onto the respective dialog widgets. It would be a pain to get it done. We have nobody to do that work, sorry.

I agree it would be extremely nice and useful to have such a feature. Context-sensitive help would be very useful. Not only in KDEPrint -- for every application!

But we need a technical solution that does help automate that job, otherwise it is not feasible.

Assigning this bug to module "docs" for now and changing $summary accordingly...

(changed $summary, previous was: "'Help' in Print dialog should open context-specific documentation")
