Simplify tool
AnsweredIs there an item by item description of Simplify tool somewhere? I can't seem to find it.
It really shouldn't be a huge effort to note down a few sentences on what each setting does:
Type:
Target triangle count:
Minimal edge length:
Coordinate system:
Unit type:
Preserve parts:
In particular what I am trying to find out is how to simplify just by using minimum edge length. What is the unit? I have defined a length in model using 2 control points. I have two distances showing (which is also a bit confusing)  Defined distance and Calculated distance. Why are they not the same? How did RC calculate the distance in the first place? I digress a bit. What minimum distance is the Simplify tool referring to? Calculated or defined? In my case they are different by factor of 10.
A dedicated video explaining each tool would be really helpful. I don't want to go through dozen of videos to hunt if someone mentions simplify tool and what it does.
Thank you!

It would be useful if there was an article online. Help button is also not in the most obvious spot in the UI. Might be more useful if it lived next to about button and took you to an online page.
Description is very sparse. Does not provide more detailed info.
For example:
So for other people looking for the same, here is a copy from the UI help.
