I notice you have updated the help topic of ctags. However, it is not quite up-to-date.
The sentence "utags.vdm only looks for the tags file in the current directory" is not true. Utags.vdm searches tags from current file's directory and it's parent directories.
The instructions to copy utags.vdm to local directories and to modify the File_Open() command are not valid. In Windows, copying the macro to "local directory" does not cause it to be used, since current directory is probably not the same as current file's directory. And modifying the File_Open command is not recommended, since it would break the advanced functionality of finding the tags file.
You only need to have one tags file at your project root. However, you can have multiple tags files at different parts of the project directory tree if required.
The Help says "You can nest these lookup at least 10 levels down". Actually, there is no limit in how many levels can be nested.
You suggest using F12 for ctags lookup and Ctrl-F12 for return.
I would suggest using F12 for "C function show/select", since it is a less drastic operation, Ctrl-F12 for ctags lookup and Shift-Ctrl-F12 for return. (Using Shift for reverse operation is common in Windows programs.)
The configuration option in utags.vdm configures return key as Shift-Ctrl-F12, not Ctrl-F12 as you say in the help file.

I can not find "What's New" section in the Help.
Several other sections from the old Help are missing, too.
