Also, FWIW, there is some inconsistency in how documentation for each
tool is accessed. Examples:

Pylint, Bookmarks, Breakpoints, etc: Right click on the tool content
itself and choose "Show X Documentation"
Refactoring, Uses: Click on Options -> Display X Documentation.

Then for most tools, there is no direct link to appropriate
documentation. But when there is a direct link to the documentation from
the GUI, there's no consistent way of finding it.

You could, for example, put it in the right click menu for the tab. Some
place out of the way. Arguably showing the documentation isn't what I
expected under "Options."
