Use Menu, Help, Documentation Center. Towards the bottom right of the page you should see an Installed Add-Ons link. Click that and you should see your packages. If you don't see your packages it is probably because you don't have them in your private Mathematica/Applications folder. Evaluate $BaseDirectory or $UserBaseDirectory to find that folder and move the packages there. The new Documentation Center system generally suffers from Index pages that are not dense enough. For a given grouping of commands they often show only the most common ones and then the user has to click to another index page to obtain a full list. WRI could organize the index pages to have more Function links on them, perhaps making the more common ones slightly more prominant. It would also be nice if the Documentation Center had an Index page for all the standard packages that WRI supplies with Mathematica. And as long as the old Help Browser is around it would be nice if the Help menu had an entry to directly bring it up instead of having to detour through the Documentation Center. -- David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/ "sean_incali" <sean_incali at yahoo.com> wrote in message news:fhrs45$5lj$1 at smc.vnet.net... > hey everyone. > > Ok so I just installed Mathematica 6, and I really harte th help browser. > Is > it just me?
