Hi Everyone,
I am running Matlab 2016 B on Windows 10.
When i use the help command, such as "help help" the results are all scrolled to the bottom, to read it, i need to scroll all the way up. Am I doing something wrong? or is this default so that i the help file is 100 pages long, i will need to scroll up 100 pages to read from the beginning?
I tried help help, also help help /p hopefully getting a page break option
Cheers Nelson

MATLAB does not put in page pauses for any of its output.

You can force MATLAB to pause after displaying a screen of text using the more function.
But if you're looking at a function that has 100 pages of help text, that's way too much IMO. That information should (again IMO) be in a documentation page not help text. To create that documentation, either use the information in this documentation page for class documentation or this documentation page to create documentation for a toolbox. Then access that documentation using the doc function instead of the help function.
