I have asked this question of the Front Line Support group who suggested that I post this on the Forum. Here it is:
“What has happened to the “Help Center?” When I am in SU 2019 and click “Help” and then “Help Center,” I am taken to a page (https://help.sketchup.com/en) which always shows the same info, and, when I further attempt to explore the topic I am asking about via the search box “Find an answer to your SketchUp question,” I am always taken to the same page (https://help.sketchup.com/en/help-search?keys=textures). Where is HELP?”
After a response from FLS, I responded with:
"First, I was using “Textures” only as an example. When on the page that you provided, if I type in another topic to “search,” back we go to a similar blah help page. This is NOT how I remember your Help Center working in the past.
Second, regarding your direction to the Help Center, the YouTube channel, the Skill-builders Series, and the Forum, I have used and used all of these extensively, except that the Help Center no longer provides much if any help. and, to me, really seems broken.
As an example, if I use your link above ( https://help.sketchup.com/en/sketchup/adding-colors-and-textures-materials ), and then type a different topic in the “Find and Answer to your SketchUp Question” section, for example - components, I get the typical “Older Release Notes,” “Applying Dashed Lines to Layers,” etc. page. This just doesn’t seem right to me. In your words, making the Help Center a bit more robust is an understatement. It used to be more robust. What happened?"
Sorry for the length of this post, but Help is needed.
