    Where the Help Documentation for CS4?

    Kurrykid Level 3
      When you click Help in Flash CS4, you go to "Search Community Help" page which does not usually produce very good results. Where can I find the normal Flash help documentation?

      Thank you.

          Good luck.

          For some reason, Adobe decided to move all help online with CS4, and the online solution they built is amateur at best (otherwise known as awful). There is a PDF language reference that you can search through, but you are better off getting a book, or finding some good online resources away from Adobe. (Or you could always keep CS3 installed and use it as your help resource...)

            That is incorrect. The HELP still sucks but you can go to Window/Extensions
            and opt for offline. If you are a CS4 user this will change all your
            products HELP to offline.

              @tweaked_eye - not incorrect, simply missing that option. The CS4 version of off-line help is a searchable PDF language reference. My recommendations still stand as to the best ways to get Flash CS4 help.

              Here is an old thread that discusses this topic at length.
