Getting to the Real Adobe Help Files


When I go to for help in InDesign, I want to search the official Adobe InDesign help document to find my answers. It's not so simple anymore.


The default InDesign help search takes you to Adobe's website where your search gets clogged with extra (and often irrelevant) results from community and other Adobe site sections. So here's how to get to the REAL help files. Once you set this, you'll never have to worry about it again.


  1. Click on the each of the following links to open the original help document search pages for CS4: Photoshop, InDesign, Illustator
  2. Up top near the search box, check the box marked "This Help system only" and at the bottom check the radial button "Help on the Web (product Help system only)." This will set your Help preferences for all future searches.
