There does not seem to be an index in the new help files.
But they are not yet complete, the PDF will be available in June, as per: http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/community-help.html
Thanks for catching that; we've now revised that text. Adobe Help has moved away from indexes for the past few versions, but a search on a specific option name should turn up the the relevant topic.

That is deplorable. A software manual or user guide is only as good as its index.
But there are more dollars to be made from Adobe's Classroom in a Book series.
With what we have paid for the program, something like this book from O'Reilly is not bad value at $40 for the eBook
But most people would argue that they should not need to pay extra for a user guide. The sampler does not have clickable links either, so would be slow to find you way around it.
I hope this is the right place. I know not where else to go.
My elliptical marquee tool no longer works in cs5. i have to go back to cs 4 in order to use it, and it is a pain working back and forth. I was told trashing my preferences might do the trick. I do not know which preference to trash.
