On clicking the "i" button I could load a file instead of the internal text. E.g., i could check for a file "<xydata>\Info - Quick Search.txt", and load it if it exists.

Awesome. IMO
But let's wait for binocular222's opinion. I don't want to hi-jack his thread.

Sounds awesome.

Maybe "<xydata>\Help\Info - Quick Search.txt" would add less clutter to the data folder?

Sound good.
But I doubt that "i" button can beat my XYplorer_contextual_help.ahk :kidding:

A tall order, indeed. And a challenge that I hope Don will take on.

What is it? The possibility to modify the text on the fly?

1) Autosize (hardly need wordwrap at all, plus mono-spaced font allow creation of simple table)
2) Save on-the-fly
3) Flexible (can customize font/color/right-click-behaviour)

Bump.
Although I got used to bino's AHK substitute, I still think this suggestion is as valuable as it was a year ago.
