This would be great but of course beyond the scope of the contributors of this thread

In fact I have been argumenting on behalf of the "common" user to whom ReaPack is just a tool occasionally used to find and install something. (S)he will seek for help for anything already in place in the Help menu and not in the "Extensions" menu. (And there in fact is where it belongs, IMHO.)

As long as the filename of the focused effect can be obtained (I haven't looked into it).
Great to know (both facts)! Consequently a more advanced ReaPack could provide it out of the box together with the additional "Help" menu entry .

Great to know that this already seems to be possible. I would like to try this, even if it does not make much sense as long as there is no Help Menu entry for the Reaper users to easily find it. So could you elaborate on "build an index file", so that I can try to provide an example ?
