The help page for Nautilus hasn't been updated to the very different
behaviour of the spatial model.

I'll have a look at this for the GNOME 2.6 Desktop User Guide.
Comment 2 Luis Villa 2004-02-05 22:06:13 UTC
Tentatively calling this a showstopper- if we're going to make such a
major change, we really should document it well.
Comment 3 Shaun McCance 2004-02-14 05:12:29 UTC
CCing myself, because I want to follow this.  Sorry for the spam.
Comment 4 Luis Villa 2004-03-01 22:24:17 UTC
Any chance we'll be able to fix this, at least in english for the release?
Comment 5 Brian Casey 2004-03-02 08:18:55 UTC
Yes, I am currently documenting the changes and will have a draft
ready for review shortly.
Comment 6 Luis Villa 2005-07-10 15:00:32 UTC
Shaun, did this finally get fixed? (My doc installation is hosed ATM so I can't
Comment 7 Joachim Noreiko 2006-02-05 20:56:53 UTC
The Desktop User Guide now has sections on both browser and spatial mode. There's room for improvement in the way it's explained, but I think this bug can be considered obsolete and closed.
