The actual scroll-pane sequence is: With the Add-ons radio button clicked... Extra Utilities -> Notation -> Functions If this is not what you're observing, you may want to do a sanity check by evaluating the following expression in a notebook: FrontEndExecute[FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup["AddOns", "Functions"]] If that produces a beep, the next thing that I would do would be to have the front end to rebuild the Help Index. This is done with the front end menu command seqence: Help -> Rebuild Help Index Repeat the FrontEndExecute[] command thereafter. If this produces the same beep error, then browse the hard drive where Mathematica is installed. You can do this by evaluating the following commands: SetDirectory[ ToFileName[{$TopDirectory,"AddOns", "ExtraPackages","Utilities", "Documentation", "English"}]] FileNames[] This should return {"BrowserCategories.m","NotationDocumentation.nb","NotationSource.nb"} Either of the first two files is missing, you've found the source of your problem. Copy the files off of the Mathematica CD-ROM into this directory and then rebuild the Help Index. -- P.J.
