Advanced Help Program v1.0

This is a program that I designed after getting sick of typing "help index" when I was looking for something, or typing something in to find out it was the wrong spelling or word. This program uses a two-pane layout: the left side being for the topics and the right side for the text. This program also features a fully scrollable and clickable interface.

Note: This program is NOT designed for basic computers, and will fail to run on them.

Controls:
- Scroll while mouse on top of left column to scroll left column, and vice versa.
- Click on a topic to view its help text.
- Press the TAB key to exit the program

It is just sad there is no scrolling support on monitors...
With your picture, BigSHinyToys, did you place more monitor blocks after the program started or is this a bug?

that is not a bug that is just what happens wen you use splitter it causes some of the screen to not be used no fault on your part.
[Splitter] Run term and monitor at the same time.

I am currently working on an implementation for that, but a good suggestion, as it was annoying me also
