Description

In the offline documentation, when typing keywords on the search field, the results are not results from the offline doc and thus are irrelevant.

The results are taken from the documentation indexed by the GNOME help system, that does not include Tails documentation.

How hard would it be to have our documentation registered and indexed too?

During the user testing of the VeraCrypt beta, 2/5 participants said they wanted to search in the offline documentation.

One said she would do Ctrl+F in a normal browser but didn't do it. Probably because the documentation browser looks too different from a normal browser for her to believe that it would work.
