10.5: Move the Help window from one space to another
Authored by: chleuasme on May 23, '08 05:45:44PM
cmd-tab on Mac OS X, not alt ;-)

But it's not the same thing: if you want to have Help Viewer.app visible in the Dock or the command-tab menu, you only have to change a flag in the Info.plist of the application as follow

    i=/System/Library/CoreServices/Help\ Viewer.app/Contents/Info.plist
    sudo defaults write "${i%.plist}" LSUIElement 0
    sudo chmod 644 "$i"
Of course, it is completely unnecessary to do that (*), as settings that drives the window to always stay on top is indepedant to this (but still a bad choice indeed, in the case of this app ;-).


(*) well, almost: you now can hide Help Viewer.app by 1. select the command in the application menu if you already made the app be really frontmost (and thus have the right menu bar, but command-H won't work) 2. using the contextual menu in the Dock 3. type H while the app is selected in the floatting command-tab panel. Not really useful.
