        Whatever help will reintroduced for text editors, please let us avoid things like "Help with Reading" or "How to ask good questions". Such general help may not be appropriate in all contexts and a help pop-up can not teach you how to be a good teacher, anyway. My +1 to move such texts into Wiki docs. If the aim of the course is to support self-reflection and learning skills, surely there are better places how to explain things to students than a help popup.

        I think all the old extra-long help popup texts have been moved to Moodle Docs e.g. http://docs.moodle.org/en/Asking_questions and context-sensitive editor help added e.g. for description field on edit profile page:

        Description

        This box enables you to enter some text about yourself which will then be displayed on your profile page for others to view.

        Any more html editor help popups needed, or can this issue be closed?

        We must provide a quick way to Markdown and Moodle format syntax for users who do not use TinyMCE. Please do not close yet.
