I do a lot of the same; my complaint is that that is still more work
than the old way and I still think it's extremely useful to see the TOC
w/o it blocking the rest of the help text in order to see where one is
in the hierarchy.

I agree the filtering on product/toolbox is useful; I don't see that it
requires the loss of the previously better organization to add that.

It's also disconcerting that the doc actually crashes and occasionally
takes the whole Matlab session with it...never had that happen before.
