A week or so ago, I saw a message here that said that there was a hot fix.
Thinking that the help - -> update act menu option would download and install the hot fix like some other software does, I was shocked to find out that it doesn't.
So my questions are:
1. what exactly does the update act menu option do, if it doesn't install hot fixes?
2. Can this menu option me modified or a new menu option be created that will download and install hot fixes also.

You will find that the Update menu will only apply updates like 13.1 etc. Hotfixes are generally patches before an update i.e hotfix 1 or as now is the case Hotfix 2 for version 2011. These need to be applied seperatly and hence do not conform to the update menu.
This system goes way back althouhg you may be correct and they should all work from the same place, right now they do not and there is no way to change the specifics of the update menu item
