Description Joseph Remes 2013-03-18 17:52:20 UTC
Using the just released stable version 4.0.2 Xamarin Studio.
When hovering the mouse over a framework type, e.g. Encoding, the hover help is nice but I would like to see an additional piece of info. What namespace does it belong to? When hovering over Encoding (for example) I would like to see that it belongs to System.Text

Oh and one more thing. It would be *really* cool if the hover help had a link that would open MonoDoc to the relevant page.
Comment 2 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-03-19 10:58:55 UTC
FWIW, if you use the Help command (Help->Help) it opens MonoDoc to the symbol your caret is in, if possible.

I did not know that. Just tried it and it works. Thanks!
