Is there more to the Intellisense preview of documentation in advanced editor?

Whenever I select a function from my script in advanced editor in desktop, the intellisense previews the information from #shared in a grey box with two(!) ellipses. It suggests to me there is a further action I could do to display the full text. Is this possible? Like a shortcut of SHIFT + ??? to quickly view the documentation with out using #shared in a blank query? If I move my cursor towards the ellipses the box vanishes. 🙄

You can quickly call up the documentation by listing the function without parameters

let
    Source = Table.TransformColumns
in
    Source

Hi @hstance ,

 

Yes, you put the cursor on it and it will only show a short explanation.

However, you can check the detailed explanations and examples through the following document:

Power Query M function reference - PowerQuery M | Microsoft Docs

 

You can enter the function you want from the navigation bar on the left, and then click to view.

Thanks Stephen, but fully aware. Also if you click on the ? icon in the corner it opens the documenation.

My question is limited to the preview with ellipses.

This is more helpful to me than the #shared. Thanks for noting it.
