All: Please spruce up the Help documentation and search!

This isn't really a bug report, though it may be seen as a feature request. I have to say that the way support documentation for Photoshop (and other Adobe products) seems to be organized drives me crazy. If I invoke "Photoshop Help" from the "Help Menu", I get to There are a bunch of topics, and that's fine as far as it goes. But there's no index! And the only Search field goes to "Adobe Community Help." I'm sorry, I don't want to waste time with wide-ranging user discussions that may be minimally related to my query. Call me old fashioned, but I want to go to a single official "user manual" document with a good index and a search engine limited to that document only. (Of course Community Help has its place and should be an option.)

My question in this case was whether it's possible to open an image into Camera Raw from within Photoshop rather than Bridge. My Community Help query was "open in camera raw". The first and most 'featured' link returned by that search was a page describing what models of camera support raw formats. See what I mean? Please, please! improve the organization and search functions of your support documentation. Thank you.
