This TamperMonkey/GreaseMonkey Script will allow you to access YoyoGame's Help File by pressing Shift+F1 while a function is selected on the web page or in the Post Box.

Shift+F1 Starts GMS:1's Help System

Shift+F2 Starts GMS:2's Help System

I got tired of copying and pasting functions and launching the online help by hand while composing replies on the forum. This makes it a lot easier.

The code works on the GMC forum and on reddit/r/gamemaker.

Please report any issues here or on our web site!

v1.4 added support for in browser slack

v1.3 changes

Tested on firefox

Changed Shift+F2 for Studio 2 Help to Ctrl+F1 due to firefox's use of shift+F2

v1.2 changes

re-wrote both files to prevent interferences between the 2

renamed the original studio 1 file. ples remove the original file(s) from tampermonkey as the name changed

v1.1b changes

Added Second File for GMS:2 help system. Use Shift+F2

v1.1 changes

added includes to support old gmc forum site

added includes to support actual help system site though I recomend you get https://yellowafterlife.itch.io/gamemaker-manual-h... for a better help experience

changed the url generation to start the entire help system using the ?page= feature of the help system

changed the help url to use http and not the https so that if you use yellowafterlife's system you wont need to change the include

added a sorted array of descriptions, url to perform the search on as opposed to the flat array that only held the urls, resulting in cleaner search

changed the search to binary search

added find closest match for the search for example Intro will find Introduction, Int will find Int32
