As I start to move towards testing the Location Referencing tab of the Ribbon in ArcGIS Pro 3.0.0, I'm noticing that if I mouse-over a button and Press F1 for more help, the page it goes to is often/invariably from ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing instead of from ArcGIS Roads and Highways and I am using the latter.

Sometimes I switch a page like Extend a route—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation (which has a Pipeline Referencing URL) for one like Extend a route—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation (which has a Roads and Highways URL) by replacing "location-referencing-pipelines" in the URL with "roads-highways".

Do I need to always go to the trouble of doing that or are all such pairs of pages identical?

Others can confirm but it's been my understanding they are basically the same.

You can set your Pro project to launch to either version of the help topics through the Location Referencing options https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/help/production/roads-highways/set-location-referencing-opt....

Hi Nathan

After reading your post I assumed that this would work but had not tested that setting until just now.

Unfortunately, even though I have it set to Roads and Highways, when I click F1 while hovering over a button like Realign in the Routes button group of the Location Referencing ribbon tab the help page that opens in my browser is still that of Pipeline Referencing.

I think the F1 key not taking me to the correct documentation is a bug.

On the other hand, when I click on a tool like Realign in the Routes group of the Location Referencing ribbon tab, to open it in the Location Referencing pane, and then click the blue question mark near top right of that the pane, then the help that opens in my browser is the Roads and Highways help.

This has been recorded by Esri as BUG-000151312: Making Roads and Highways preferred solution for documentation in ArcGIS Pro does not open correct help with F1 key.
