Help system improvements: Get help on this control/device

I often want help on a specific device. E.g., today I was wondering "which way does Correction Speed work in Neptune? Is clockwise faster or slower?"

It would be neat if I could right click any control and choose "Get Help" and it would open the help docs at the right spot for me.

And I could right click on the background of a device and choose "Get Help" to open to the main help page for that device.

Instead, I have to do something like:

1) F1 to open help
2) Wait for it to load
3) Click on "Search" tab header
4) Click in search bar so it has focus
5) Type "Neptune Correction Speed" or whatever
6) Hit Enter
7) Choose the result that looks correct
8) Browse the resulting page

PS often the resulting page looks bad because every instance of the search term (e.g., "Neptune") is highlighted and there's no easy way to turn the highlighting off once you don't need it any more.

Ableton Live provides a good model for implementing a suggestion like this. Love it or hate it, that program is exemplary in a lot of ways. Get wise to it.
