On Windows, Wing looks for local copies of Python documentation in the Doc directory of the Python installation(s), either in CHM or HTML format.

If you are using Linux or OS X, the Python manual is not included in most Python installations, so you may wish to download and install local copies.

To do this, place the top-level of the HTML formatted Python manual (where index.html is found) into python-manual/#.# within your Wing IDE installation. Replace #.# with the major and minor version of the corresponding Python interpreter (for example, for the Python 2.7.x manual, use python-manual/2.7).

Once this is done, Wing will use the local disk copy rather than going to the web when the Python Manual item is selected from the Help menu.
