[Usability] Build Settings window is confusing when platform support is not installed

Editor - Other


Reproduction steps:
1. Launch 5.3+ Unity editor with missing target support modules.
2. Go to "File > Build Settings".
3. Select any missing target platform and click on "Module Manager"

Actual result: more information about modules and how to install them would be useful.
Expected result: information on how to install missing modules (reopen Unity Download Assistant, etc).

Additional note: module manager doesn't provide a way to install missing modules.

    This is probably the wrong place to post this, but to those of you who, like me, didn't realize that the download assistant is the same thing as the installer,

    UnityDownloadAssistant-5.3.1f1.exe should be in your downloads folder,

    or wherever you downloaded it to, for whatever version you downloaded. Once I figured that out, it was pretty easy to run it, uncheck everything except the new build target I wanted (so I didn't redownload the pieces I already had), and then run it. It installed the new build target and problem solved. I don't know why I couldn't find any documentation that said that.

    This is a big issue for me. I still haven't figured out how to download new build targets.
