The functionality you suggest could certainly be made optional in a future versions of Mathematica, however the OD documentation is in my opinion generally superior because it is live, that is you can copy/paste the help cells onto your NB , but also directly modify the cells in the OD help file and see the new output (the help file will not be overwritten). Regarding some of your other points: 2- you can enlarge OD help like any other NB window, clicking on the bottom right button 3- for OD: click on the window and press pagedown 4- I agree with you 5- have not checked yet 6- I have several program windows open at the same time, so using ctrl- tab cycling would take too long. I simply have 2 monitors and put the help in the second one. You can also use the window menu to select a different window in Mathematica. 7- I agree, but these updates are not made every day, so you won't see much in your day by day usage
