Hi. You’ve posted your question in a forum that is for beginners trying to learn the basics of Photoshop. I'm moving your question to the Photoshop Elements forum for specialized attention to your situation.
I have the dowloadable PDF files which are useful, however there has previously been a method, with other Adobe products, to have the actual help file from the webside reside locally, which is really useful for context sesitive help when not connected to the web.
Is this possible with Elements 11 or are there any plans to provide this?
