Normal is the normal distribution object from Distributions.jl. That works. However, the following do not work: entering a function in the REPL, entering a function wrapped in a module into the REPL, and loading a package I made.
It makes me wonder if there is an “update docs” function somewhere.
The docs pane search should look at all symbols in the environment and also all symbols defined in your local project’s code, but the latter part isn’t working correctly atm, I think. Runtime state (i.e. anything you do in the REPL) doesn’t matter at all though – you don’t even need to have a REPL session running to get docs.
Why do some packages load into the documentation pane and others do not? In the REPL, the documentation for MCHammer.jl works but does not exist in the eyes of VScode. Any thoughts? Is there something in the package itself preventing the doc from rendering?
