Add prefs documentation to online help - for QuickExec

Typing HELP from QuickExec takes you to a page that does not document how to view or set prefs.   It goes to http://docs.telerik.com/fiddler/knowledgebase/quickexec.  The prefs doc is at http://fiddler.wikidot.com/prefsaction

 

Also, add a link to send feedback onto the KB pages / documentation to make it easy to submit doc feedback :-)

 

Cheat sheet:

prefs set fiddler.importexport.HTTPArchiveJSON.MaxTextBodyLength 999999
prefs show fiddler.importexport.HTTPArchiveJSON.MaxTextBodyLength

    Typing "help" in quickexec redirects you to help about quickexec as a whole. Why should it point to help on one particular quickexec command?

    I agree :-)  But the help page should list all of the quickexec commands /or/ link to additional pages.  I did not see anything about prefs on the page that the help command links over to.

    Ah I see now. Yep, our online documentation is lagging behind Fiddler. We'll definitely update it although I can't really commit to a deadline on this.

    FWIW, if you have the Fiddler Book, put the PDF in the Fiddler folder and you can open it directly via the Help menu.

    When I type help into the toolbar it actually fails to load the documentation.  

    Typing help loads the page:

        http://fiddler2.com/r/?quickexec 

    which redirects to which never loads (eventually I get a 502).

        https://docs.telerik.com/fiddler/knowledgebase/quickexec

    Removing the https seems to make it work.
