    Inventor's help (F1) is by default an online tool. For most users, this makes sense, as if any changes or amendments are needed throughout the year, the help files can be updated, and you always have access to the latest version.
    The downside is if you are not connected to the internet. In this instance, you are able to download local help files, which Autodesk make available online, you can download the local files from Autodesk here:


    Download the Local Help

    To download the complete Inventor 2016 Help System to your computer or local network for installation, click an installer for the supported language below.

    NOTE: You can specify whether to access the ONLINE help or the downloaded/LOCAL Help as your default from within Inventor. After you install the local help, you can switch between it and online Help any time. Set the Help Options in the Application Options dialog box, General tab.

    For more information, please visit the Autodesk Help page here:
