I always have trouble finding what I want in MadCap's docs, partly because
the search doesn't do a great job of prioritizing results. They also have
way too many collapsed paragraphs and iconized graphics.
I also dislike the many collapsed paragraphs, they've been there for many years. It needlessly makes it harder to use the docs. I've always thought that Flare probably feels the need to show off in their docs because, well hey, we make tools for documentation and we've got to show what we can do! To be fair though, the Flare docs are extensive and useful. It's just an annoyance to open all those plus signs.
