Create links to Desktop Help System documents using the link element in the ArcToolbox Documentation Editor
Last Published: April 25, 2020
The ArcToolbox documentation Editor allows for the inclusion of links. The Add Link button adds a link to a desktop help system document, a Web page, or any file based document.
When the ArcToolbox Documentation Editor is open and the Add Link button has been clicked enter a name and a path. The name is the text that appears in the documentation and becomes the link. The path is the full path to the Desktop Help System document that requires a connection.
Enter the link text, in the Name input box, as it appears in the documentation.
