      Hi Wolfgang! Sorry, I'm confused... Is this a separate plugin? Is this not included together with ADT tools?

      Also please update the blog links, they're the author's links with edit mode. We can't open them. The public link will have the blog name in it.

      Hi Jelena,

      no, the ADT Eclipse help plug-ins are part of the ADT client installation. No extra installation required.

      Only on-premise customers who work on back-end versions lower than 7.55 need to activate the relevant docu ICF nodes in order to enable the ABAP Keyword Documentation (a.k.a. language help).

      Thank you for your information regarding the links. I updated them.

      Could I help you?

      Kind regards,
