Hi Kee,

I found that any search term input seems to just look
at the Mac’s HelpViewer app that is located under the
system library core services.  I haven’t found where
it stores it’s files yet or if I can put my own stuff in there

What I do instead of that is provide links to my
user manual, website and feedback support email.
I provide a search routine on my website that
accesses my app’s user manual etc.

If you come up with a better solution, I’m all
eyes and ears on it!
