Documentation BrowserΒΆ

The Canopy Documentation Browser is accessible from the Help menu. It includes links to documentation for some commonly used Python packages.


One significant feature of the Documentation Browser is that it provides easy access to sample code presented in the documentation. Right-clicking in a sample code box displays the context menu shown in the screen shot below. Selecting ‘Copy code’ copies the contents of the code block into Canopy’s copy-and-paste buffer so you can paste it into an editor.

Selecting ‘Run code’ opens the example code in an edit buffer and automatically runs it from IPython, equivalent to selecting Run -> Run File from the editor. This makes it quick and easy to experiment with demo and example code.
