Hi, all, 

   I have 7.0 for Linux x86 (32-bit). In the last two weeks or so, when I type a question mark and then a command name, the usual Help message doesn't pop up, with the short description of the function and a link to follow to the full documentation. All that shows is the context and Attributes of the function; if I type the function name into the full Help dialogue (Help -> Documentation Center), that works fine. 
   For example, 








   However, for my OWN functions, or those of David Park, the "? interface" works fine: 


ListDensityDraw[array, opts] generates the primitive graphics of a density plot from an array of height values.

           I'm quite certain that I've munged something up, perhaps in the Option Inspector somewhere. Does anyone have suggestions?
