The snag to this is that the tooltip field is translated, and we won't be able to warn translators not to translate that bit (it's not just strings embedded in C code).

The problem with hard coding the current locations of the commands into a help text is that the menus are still evolving and so the help would become misleading in the future.

However, what would be possible would be to create support for references to commands in tool tips (which is what the help text is). Without doing excessive work this could simply be a convention that a help text could have a section at the end like this:

Associated Commands: RepeatEnd ClosingBarline ....

and the help text display routine could pick these up and look up their location in the menu system and allow direct access to them.

So I'll keep this bug open for that enhancement.

The text refers you to the Command Centre. There is space to refer you to use Directives Barling and Directives repeat, rather than direct you to more help. Just change the help text, not the command. JW.
