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.
Or like they say in another industry: A shark in the tank keeps other fish in good shape, too.

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.
