#18938 new enhancement

Launch JOSM help always in web browser

Reported by: simon04 Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core Version:
Keywords: help browser Cc: skyper


The rendering of various content types such as images / table-of-contents differs between the internal help browser HelpBrowser and JOSM wiki displayed in a web browser. I propose to skip HelpBrowser altogether and always open the JOSM help in the configured/default web browser.

Other software products following this approach: LibreOffice, IntelliJ, GIMP;

Another option would be to override the default browser in the JavaFX plugin, using WebView.

We already have the advanced preferences to open context sensitive help in the web browser. How about just changing the defaults?

While the HelpBrowser is not rendering that nicely, it is fast and a good fallback in cases of missing graphical web browsers.
