Issue:

Why is the PLS_Toolbox help information not available in my Matlab help window?

Possible Solutions:

There are several possible reasons you may not be able to access PLS_Toolbox help information from Matlab's Help window:

  1. Matlab version earlier than 7.0
    PLS_Toolbox's help is only available in the Matlab help browser in Matlab 7.0 and later. To access PLS_Toolbox help in earlier versions, use the command helppls.
  2. Help Window Not Refreshed
    If you have just installed PLS_Toolbox and cannot access the help information in Matlab's Help window, you may need to restart Matlab. In some cases, you must restart Matlab after installing PLS_Toolbox for the help to be available.
  3. PLS_Toolbox not installed in default folder
    If you renamed the folder containing the PLS_Toolbox m-files from "PLS_Toolbox" to something else, Matlab will be unable to locate the help files. Later versions of PLS_Toolbox will automatically correct for this change but, for now, you must manually change the info.xml file in PLS_Toolbox's main folder:
    1. Change the Matlab working directory to your PLS_Toolbox directory.
    2. Type edit info.xml to open the file as a text file.
    3. Change line 12 from:
    <help_location>$toolbox/PLS_Toolbox/help</help_location>

    to:

    <help_location>.\help</help_location>
