System.tag.read not available in 8.0

I am still using Ignition 7.9.9, but when I go to Help, it shows help for 8.0.
I am specifically looking for help on system.tag.read, but it does not even show up in the help.
Also system.tag.write.

There’s a link way down at the bottom to the 7.9 manual.

Here’s the docs on system.tag.read: https://docs.inductiveautomation.com/display/DOC79/system.tag.read

Note the DOC79 in the manual, rather than DOC80 for the current manual. In 8.0 we switched the user manual links in the software to permanent links (so they’ll always go to 8.0 manual pages) but 7.9 just uses a generic docs.inductiveautomation.com link, which goes to the current software version due to the way our manual works. I would recommend bookmarking the 7.9 manual if you’re using 7.9.
