Currently CS6 help is only available online. Users can access online help within the product or from this CS6 help hub (http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite.html). The PDF will be available in June.
UPDATE July 2012: PDFs are now available. Install them directly with the Adobe Help Manager or access them directly here.

Hello, thanks for this info - I am currently trying CS 6 to find out whether it is worthful to change from CS 5.5. For the moment, I had to say yes, definitely! But then I came across the help issue and this is nearly a no-go for me. The community help in CS 5.5 worked perfectly, especially the offline-reader (I am using your products half of the time offline because of very limited internet connection and using help on a daily basis).
The stand alone help viewer had many advantages:
- it was able to handle context-sensitive help, ie. in ActionScript, just highlight a keyword and press F1
- it was rendering and displaying nicely, and was independent of my web browser (my default browser has usually many tabs open and now I have to search for the adobe-help every time)
- it was fast (in comparision to the online help)
Is it possible to switch back to the community help?
Thanks and best regards!
