I'm sorry to those who came up with the idea of using the new online help system when you press F1, but it's an epic fail. I really don't mean any offense. I actually love that Adobe tries new things, but honestly, I've TRIED my hardest to give it time to get used to this new "help system" when you press F1, but I honestly can't take it anymore.

I want the old feature back -- when you press F1 you get taken DIRECTLY to the user guide for your specific version, and you also have the option to access the pdf version right from there too if you like.

I use it A LOT, not only for myself but I also help/teach others on a multitude of sites and it was soooo much easier to help them before using the old system. Now, it's actually EASIER (90% of the time) to just tell them how without directing them to adobe's site at all. I used to tell them "press f1" and do this or this.

It's just so time-consuming trying to find help on just about ANY topic for any program now. Especially trying to tell someone else how to get there and find it themselves... practically impossible.

Please I'm begging here.... please bring back the old way! I've actually ignored people who need help JUST because it's so difficult to tell them how to find and/or access a particular topic.

And please don't recommend me using the "search" feature. That feature is useless 80-90% of the time. You tell it to ONLY search within Photoshop (or whatever product) and they still provide search results to other products and/or show you completely unrelated topics.

F1 direct to user guide was the absolute best! Please please please bring it back!?!?
