    Hello,

    I'm having issues with getting my Open Reference to work properly on my Unity interface. I keep clicking the question mark icon belonging to each of the inspector components i.e. Canvas, Rect Transform, etc., but nothing is happening, the Question Mark icon just flashes and nothing happens. It's supposed to open the page corresponding to that particular component in the inspector i.e. let's say I click on the ? Icon next to Graphic Raycaster, its supposed to open its page but nothing is happening. Can anyone help me?

    I have unity version 2020.3 on a MacBook Pro.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hey everyone,

    I have tried my other projects and so far, the Question Mark ? Icon only opens the reference page for the inspector components on Unity 3D projects but not the 2D ones. If you are working on 2D projects, you will have to go take extra steps to look for more information on the specific component you need more information on via the following link:

    https://docs.unity3d.com/Packages/com.unity.ugui@1.0/manual/index.html - For specifically the UI components

    https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual - for Everything else

    Hopefully, however, someone can explain why the ? icon itself doesn't open the corresponding page for the component I click on in my 2D projects.

    Thanks again!
