Regarding documentation, what are you setting as your documentation
root? Also, for blue, it must have the trailing / or \, depending on
if it is an http address or local path on Windows (local path on
linux/osx should use / ). When using shift-f1, the cursor has to be
inside a complete opcode name, i.e. oscil. Once there, when you press
shift-f1, it will try to open the browser using "docroot + opcodeName
+ .html". For opcode completion using ctrl-space, again the cursor
needs to be within the word you are trying to complete. So if you
type "vc" then press ctrl-space, it will give a number of options
like "vco2", "vcella", etc. After you select it it will give you the
entry from the manual prefilled in.
My guess is this is a path problem, as I tested it just now here
without problems. Could you try setting the documentation root to the
default "http://www.csounds.com/manual/html/" and see if that changes
it for you?
