What does Tools > Generate Repository... do?

In a typical Windows UX, the user should expect a dialog to come up after an ellipses in the menu.  Clicking that menu item does nothing that I can see. 

This is just mostly for my own curiosity.  The "view help" menu item is broken, so I couldn't find information about it there (I reported the help issue to the feedback portal), and there is literally no information at all on Google about it:

https://www.google.com/?q=%22Visual+Style+Builder%22+%22Generate+Repository%22#q=%22Visual+Style+Builder%22+%22Generate+Repository%22

Thanks

Hi Adam,

Thank you for writing.

The "Generate Repository" item seems to have some issues currently, hence the dialog is not opened. I have logged this and we will address it in a future release.

As to the "View help" link, it expects that the Visual Studio 2008 (help2) documentation of Telerik UI for WinForms is installed and clicking this menu item would open the documentation for Visual Style Builder. However, this seems like an outdated option and we will remove it with the next release. One should use the online documentation option instead.

Thank you for this feedback. I have updated your Telerik points for this report.

Regards,
Stefan
