Index list should overlap page content and not push it downwards
Index list should only appear after typing at least 3 or 4 chars

I always wondered why we don't run own indexing but Google. Elasticsearch shouldn't be too much effort for experts https://www.elastic.co/
The index here is built from the <bookmark_value> tags and thus the search is restricted to a (long) list and results in a page within the Help.
The search with google or a substitute (Elasticsearch) is in the "Search" tab and is done by searchng "LibreOffice" on a limited set of valid websites (help.l.o, helponline.l.o, documentation.l.o wiki.t.o, <lang>.l.o), and excluding *.microsoft.com and *.office.com
So if I search "pivot table" I actually search "libreoffice pivot table" in the LO websites and TDF websites, and excludes results from MsOffice.
Please open a specific bug on the right search engine to use.
