It is impossible to jump to or to view any Documentation for System types.
If I right-click an object of type, say, System.Net.HttpListener, I'd like an option to view Documentation about that class. Equivalently, if I right-click a field of an object of type System.Net.HttpListener, I'd like to be able to open/view documentation about that field. But I have none of these options.
Equivalently, the Help Pad, or a "Documentation Pad", could show some brief documentation about the currently selected/highlighted object.
This problem is alleviated when dealing with custom classes, for which the option "Go to declaration" suffices.
Also, I don't mean the Tooltips, which naturally appear. These show the Class/Class field's signature, but give no documentation information.
You can use Help -> API Documentation.
I guess it might be nice to have the command appear in the context menu when help exists for the current item.
We're currently designing a help pad.
