Is there a way to search LibreOffice's help but limit the results to those for a specific program in the office suite or only one language? It seems like this would be one of the most fundamental features of a search tool for an office suite help database, I just can't find it. I mean, a help site is only useful if the relevant results aren't hidden among hundreds of meaningless results in 20 different languages for the wrong programs, right? Can anyone point out how I'd go about filtering search results like that?

Example: Let's say I wanted to search the term "end column section" but only return results for Writer that are written in English

Avoid the in-site search facility on the Help sub-domain, like so many in-site search facilities it is nigh useless. Instead use an expression like this in a search engine:

 site:help.libreoffice.org/Writer/ "end column section"

The results returned will generally match the input language and Writer can be varied (Calc, Impress, Draw, Math) according to component.
