"Search in page": 
 Under my point of view, I miss the capability of searching text inside the current page I am reading.

"Select page in Contents":
 Also, it is often useful to know the location of that page in the contents hierarchy, in order to be able to get back
to it by remembering the location instead of "searching in the search" again.

I agree that something like this would be nice. For example, it would be nice to be able to press Ctrl-F and get a
search field, much like in the IDE's editor or in Firefox

I think both features are really fundamental for any 21st century help system and P5 is not really appropriate for this
enhancement request. Therefore I took the liberty to change it to P3.

The help system contains lots of good info, but the help systems' UI is not really encouraging people to find it.

Reassigning to the new "core/help system" owner obarbashov.
