The Help script works for me on Mac OS X.

What platform are you using? What version of TW, and if self-compiled, what version of Qt is it built with?

(I suppose we could expose the script object's filename property in order to avoid the need to use this feature.)

Paul, that's very cool indeed! One thing: if you use Qt's Layout mechanism in the window, it'll handle cross-platform differences and resizing better. (When I first tried it, many button labels were clipped.)

I also think this would be better as a non-modal Window rather than a Dialog, though I haven't experimented to know whether that's actually possible yet.
