Bug report #8305

Help viewer process running in the background with no help viewer (or even QGIS) open

Problem 1: If I right-click on a vector layer, click "Save as", and click help, qgis_help.exe starts in the background, but no help window is displayed.

Problem 2: If I click help again, then the help viewer is displayed. If I then close the help viewer, the qgis_help.exe process ends. But if I leave the help viewer open and close QGIS instead, the help viewer also closes (this might be OK, although I think it would be better if it stayed open), but the qgis_help.exe process does not end.

This is on Windows XP

don't close qgis_help when qgis closes (fixes #8305)


#1 Updated by Jürgen Fischer almost 7 years ago

  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Fixed in changeset a43a287a7929ce8505e9a694a6ac685a45dc6854.

Problem 1 wasn't reproducable. worksfor me.
Problem 2 was fixed by not terminating the help process - ie. leaving the window open, when QGIS terminates.
