On different pages of the help with several 'Sections' the whole thing is nothing else than a confusing spaghetti text.

Example: General Rules

Please make the headers of the individual sections in larger font, red color, other indentation or anything else, so that the text becomes a little more structured and the Help easier to use.

Even something as simple as a "<br><hr><br>" sequence, to draw a line between each section, makes a big difference (as shown below).

Also, the word "Comments" at the very top of that page isn't indented like the rest, and it should be.

Hi Mesa,

thanks for your work. I'm not sure that was done just for General Rules. This was only given by me as an example.

I found the following pages that contain 'Spaghettitext':
Compiler Functions
Compiler Directives
Pointers and memory access
Includes Functions
Debugger keywords in PureBasic
Others Commands

Additional Bug:
On some pages the headers always start at the far left, on some pages only the first header line starts at the far left.

These ones got now the dividing bars between each keyword too.

I found some others:
Data
Macros
Break : Continue
Gosub : Return
Procedures
Dim
Structures

There are indentation errors on the following pages. Only the first point starts at the far left, the following points never return to the beginning of the line:
General Rules
Pointers and memory access

Removed 'Done' from the headline so that my last point is not overseen.

Has the online help not been updated yet or why do these changes not appear there?

Please, it was said a lot of time that online help is rarely updated because only Fred has the ability to do that and he forgets often... :wink:
