Ok I have calmed down a bit now. Adobe Help Manger (see image below) informed me that there were updates to the PDF’s.
So I download two of them, AME and Premiere. I checked the Premiere PDF and saw that it referred to CC. I don't have CC, I use CS6 and that’s the one I want help for, not CC. Maybe Adobe doesn't think that this is a problem. But If I'm looking for help on a particular topic and I find it listed in the PDF, it could well be a feature that’s in CC and not in CS6. For example, Lumetri is in CC and not in CS6. Its no good me looking through a help file only to find that the help does not apply to the version I am using!
Fortunately (and also unfortunately) I did a complete system backup in April, so I located the old PDF’s on the backup. Unfortunately some of them are many months old and I know there have been a few recent updates to the CS6 PDF’s between April and now, before the PDF’s were updated with CC info.
From the image below,
you can see that I actually downloaded 4 PDF’s that reference to CC (I added the _CC to the PDF’s listed here) so If anyone can tell me where I can download the latest CS6 versions of the PDF’s, I'd be very grateful.
Note to Adobe – Please make sure that when updates are sent out, that they actually correspond to the versions of software which are in use (or keep the old PDF versions safe somewhere.)
I would agree, a proper PDF dedicated to ONE version of PP, with only the information that applies to that version. If we have multiple versions installed, then we should have multiple PDFs, one for each, with the correct PDF being called up from within PP.
It's more work for Kevin, I know, but I do think it is the right way to do things.
+1 for Jim's comments.
After a long trawl around Adobe's web site, all the PDF help files for CS6 and even earlier versions are there for download. I searched for Premiere_Pro_reference and "Premiere pro help" and found the files in their various archive sections. It turns out I have the latest versions for CS6.
