Define 'context menu' please, Duncan.  Maybe I used a different sequence 
the last time when it worked, much to my surprise?

One thing is for sure, if the help files contained more howto's it would 
qualify as help, whereas it seems they are drifting off toward an 
abbreviated feature listing all over linux, not just kde.  So I am not 
pointing a specific finger at a specific target, but making a general 
complaint.  If the operation the user wants to do is not 100% intuitive 
(that should be the target to code to anyway), then explain it in the help!
I have heard it said many times that the coder shouldn't do Docs, he should 
be coding _to_ the Docs, but really, the coder who wrote those 20 lines is 
often the only one with the knowledge to write a tutorial-helpfile that 
actually fits what the code does.  When you have a largely itch driven 
feature list instead of a framework master document thou shall not deviate 
from (this, thanks be, is NOT microsoft folks), it seems the coder _should_ 
only get his code into the tree after his docs on the particular function 
have been reviewed, tested, and found accurate.  That would be quite an 
incentive to improve the current 'its all black magic' helpfile situation.

That's my story & I'm sticking to it.  ;-)

In the meantime I have about 30 more identical sticks to carve tenons on 
the ends of with my cnc milling machine before it gets too wet (its in the 
forecast anyway) to carry wood back and forth between a wood storage 
building, my shop building and the garage/shop.  I have machines setup 
where they'll fit, but I am not well organized for work flow.  I think that 
might be a JOAT-ish trait. :-)  OTOH, I can walk away from the mess, the 
floor around the mill has a 6" pad of fine sawdust that needs to be cleaned 
up, but when this portion of the project is done.  I am making bench seats 
that are also storage boxes to go all the way around a 9 foot with all 
leafs in it, dining table.  8 pieces in 3 different lengths all told.
I suspect it will keep me out of the bars for 2 or 3 months. ;-)

Thanks Duncan.

Cheers, Gene
