It seems to me that the OpenAuthorTools palette has been forgotten in the installation of Mathematica Version 6.0.1. When you follow the "Installed Add-Ons" link from the new Documentation Center main page, it takes you to the old Help Browser which contains documentation for the AuthorTools package (of course no reference to AuthorTools can be found in the Documentation Center ...). The help page on the Palette Interface says that "The AuthorTools palette provides a convenient way to access the other palettes ... " However I couldn't find any way to open the palette. Searching the installation directory, it just did not seem to be there. I have copied it from my 5.2 installation to C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\6.0\AddOns\Applications \AuthorTools\FrontEnd\Palettes (on Windows XP). Can someone confirm this is the right thing to do? On the next startup of Mathematica, the palette appears in the Palettes menu. This package is very useful for anyone trying to create proper documentation for their own application packages. Yet it is hard to find out about this. It still seems unsatisfactory to me that the documentation for additional packages has to appear in a different help system. John Jowett
