Not that I know. The lack of images is the biggest problem with all the help. But you're making a good case. would be an ideal candidate for an AE UI simulation in Flash that can be linked externally and pops up the buttons with nice, newby-friendly explanation texts. Or even a static PDF with callouts perhaps...
As the person who until recently was responsible for those documents, I agree that this would be nice. Annotated images of UI items don't tend to survive the restrictions placed on "streamlining" the documents. Please file a feature request so that the powers that be will see that users really want this kind of thing.
Regarding the specific case that you mention, see this page to see how I dealt with it: I gave a picture of the icon and a description of where it is.
Sure thing, Todd.
I'm a newbie on Adobe's AE User Forums, and I'm still learning the rules of the road. I thought a Feature Request was only for software!
Nope. You can make documentation requests that way, too. For specific requests, the most direct way is to leave a comment on the relevant page of Help on the Web. For general requests, the feature-request form is good.
