Recently there was an update to the help files in Studio 7.

The AVR Assembler help document is now missing the Instructions category.

It does provide a link to a PDF document, however this now disconnects the F1 command in the editor to get technical info a particular AVR instruction.

 

Is this a bug, if not is there a way to get the old document back?

So, I had a dig around, and the change is done with intent. 

 

Some history: The instructions chapter in the Assembler user guide was a dump of the instruction set manual done many many years ago. In a recent review of the user guide, this part of the user guide was found to have so many bugs that it was decided to remove it from the Assembler user guide. 

 

To replace it, I would assume that the Instruction set manual should become available, but I haven't been able to find out where that is in the priority list (we're in the process of moving into a new documentation system that produces Atmel Studio output natively, so there's a lot of documents in queue). 

 

So for now, this is how it is (unfortunately). Once the instruction set manual becomes available, it should work in a similar way to how the assemble user guide worked.

If I have a computer which has not been updated and still contains the old AVR Assembly help details, is there a way to copy those files over to the machine which was upated?
