I have a symbol in my tour that switches between day and night. I want to include the symbol in the help section so users know what to do with the symbol

Assuming that you use the ClassicControlbar, there are two files used for the helpscreen, for the foreground and the background, they are located in the "<your-project-name>data/graphics/classiccontrolbar"-folder (or .../classiccontrolbar1 if you have 2 instances of the controlbar). The names are "help_screen_fg.png" and "help_screen_bg.png", the problem when modifying these files is that they get overwritten with PTP's original files each time you re-generate the tour.
So it would be wise to save a copy of the modified versions to be able to do the replacement again if that becomes necessary, or to have a custom plugin to automatically replace the files each time the tour gets generated.
And yes, i do offer such programming services :)
