Oh yes, I just tried Ctrl+F, and it does work.

Of course, you have to make sure that you put focus in the topic frame
(if you want to find terms in the topic) before you do Ctrl+F.

And it's not intuitively obvious. :-)

Does work though!

tried)... at least under linux...

The Help window is using a browser to display, so whatever key shortcut
works in the system browser (Mozilla?) should work in the Help window.

If you search in the Preferences dialog for "browser" you'll find a
couple of settings that might help control that.

OK, I set firefox as the external browser.

Ctrl+F still acts globally on the page, but at least it also searches
the topic frame
