Contextual help does not work any more.

How to repeat:
Edit a function, procedure or trigger, then place the cursor over any Mysql functions you hare using, like max(), radians(), etc. and you will not get contextual help about this function in the right pannel like it worked before.

Suggested fix:
Repair contextual help which is very useful while developing.

Hello Juan,

Thank you for the bug report.
Verified as described.

The context help was changed so that you have to either click the ? button or enable automatic help, in the toolbar.

However, because it's confusing we'll add a message explaining that.

automatic context help now works properly in all editors, but the on-demand button doesn't show the proper reaction (when automatic context-help is turned off)

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 6.2.1 release, and here's the changelog entry:

The automatic context help did not always function in the SQL editor.

Thank you for the bug report.
