Open Help Vault choice missing from the startup menu

Newbie Question Here

When I first ran Obsidian the startup menu had:
Create New Vault
Open Folder as Vault
Open Help Vault

Now I get:
Create New Vault
Open Folder as Vault
Open Vault from Obsidian Sync **(This use to be the Open Help Vault)

When I click help I get another window with choices for online help, discord chat etc, but no local markdown help.

The full help is only available now at

Looks like it’s been folded into the help (question mark) menu:

Looks like WhiteNoise is right but they must have just did this as it was there two days ago when I first installed Obsidian. Thanks everyone for responding!

I am on Obsidian 0.14.15 so this may have changed in the Insider version, but for me I can also see the Sandbox vault with the formatting advice (in a separate window from the vault I have open) via a button on the “Show debug info” command from the command palette.

That is too bad. I much prefer the Help Vault rather than opening a web page. I think I understand why, but it was much better to access everything through the Obsidian app.
