List all three ways to reach the Help system, not only negating the F1 way. Empty table rows only with four | chars

Main Menu > Help

The help menu has the following items:

source:/trunk/images/dialogs/search.png Search menu items Ctrl+Space Opens a dialog to search for all submenu items from JOSM and its plugins
source:/trunk/images/clock.png Status Report Displays the status report with useful information mainly for developers
source:/trunk/images/bug.png Report bug Creates a new pre-filled ticket
source:/trunk/images/help.png Help F1 (see below) Shows Main Help page
source:/trunk/images/logo_32x32x8.png About Shift+F1 Displays the About JOSM... dialog with Info, Readme, Revision, Contribution, License and Plugins information

The Help system can be reached on three ways:

  1. With the F1 key. It invokes the help topic for the screen element where the mouse pointer currently is. If that element has no own help topic, then the request is passed downwards to the surrounding element. Finally this can be the Map View or Main Help pages as last resorts.
  2. With the source:/trunk/images/help.png icon from a dialog. Each icon has its own help topic so requests don't need to be passed.
  3. With the Help menu which always targets the Main help.
