Please Improve Search within the Online User Guide

Request for Improvement of  the search in the Online User Guide:
 

Is there a way to search only within the After Effects User guide? (Instead of the Community, Tutorials,

Account info, Support, etc.?) 
 
For example, I search "Pre-render" in the search bar. I do not get any relevant results. Even though "Pre-render" is a command within the software.  No links to the User Manual, just irrelevant articles.

I'd rather search and quickly jump to the desciption of it in the User Manual only.  Is there no way to do that?

 
Almost always I have to do a Google search.
 
Better yet, do you still have an offline manual?  

Years ago, when there were offline manuals, I think I could get the info I needed much quicker.

It's a request for a feature that's been lost, I guess.

 

Thank you.

Long and short: No. This request exists for as long as there is an online help, but the system is simply terrible and Adobe isn't investing the resources to make it better. This has frustrated even the most long-time users and experts, but it never changes. If you don't already know the magic words, you never find anything. So for what it's worth, just stick with Google.
