Default User Guides Missing in Help Menu

I saw a thread on this subject in earlier versions of Pro Tools but they did not help. I see the reference guide PDFs in my Pro Tools Documents folder, but I can not access them through the PT Help menu. Any thoughts?

Thanks for the list. There are KB articles for these (like Pro Tools 12 Documentation) as well. He said he has the docs but can't open them from within PT.

Your profile lists Pro Tools 12.8 on Windows 7. I just checked my Win machine which has 12.8.1 and it opens the Ref Guide, etc. from Help. You mentioned seeing the docs installed, but can you open them from the desktop? What reader/version do you have installed?

I abandoned Adobe several years ago due to its sheer size. Foxit has a free pdf reader that is tiny in comparison(but works just dandy)
