Short description of error

the output got with this error


Welcome to Python 3.5's help utility!

If this is your first time using Python, you should definitely check out
the tutorial on the Internet at
modules", "keywords", "symbols", or "topics". Each module also comes
with a one-line summary of what it does; to list the modules whose name
or summary contain a given string such as "spam", type "modules spam".

You are now leaving help and returning to the Python interpreter.
If you want to ask for help on a particular object directly from the
interpreter, you can type "help(object)". Executing "help('string')"
has the same effect as typing a particular string at the help> prompt.

Event Timeline

Thanks for the report, but that’s not really a bug.

In python console interpreter, help() starts a sub-interpreter console, dedicated to help, in which you can type directly those commands.

In Blender's python console, this does not work, help() returns immediately (as you can see by last paragraph of its message). Same last message gives you the solution: Executing "help('string')" has the same effect as typing a particular string at the help> prompt.


…is the way to go in Blender...

Also, please seek user support on user forums like or, not on the bug tracker.
